I for one see no value in mangling the English language for the sake of gender equality. I think conscientious writers should instead use plurals.
Consider this horrible sentence that sacrifices grammar for gender equality:
"The professor gave each of his students the grade they deserved."
"They"? Gah! Why mangle the King's English?
I think we can instead use the following proper sentence to convey the same meaning:
"The professor gave all his students the grades they deserved."
