Let's go ahead and replace "him/herself" with "themselves" as it's both gender neutral and it just flows better.

And I'm not being a SJW cuck when I say it's gender neutral. I'm stating the fact that since you don't know their gender, it's better to use a word that flows better in place of the original since it works the same and sounds better.

Or we could just use "him," which is the normal way to use the English language, and people can simply understand that the context means the gender is unimportant. It's only hypersensitive feminists that made it an issue in the first place. It's like the words "man" and "mankind." It doesn't mean humans that have a dick between their legs, it means every human.

What's next, banning children from learning French and Spanish because they have gendered nouns? Actually, that'd be a good rumor to spread around as a prank. Feminists would eat that shit up.

It's just plural, but I get your point. I'd just like to point out that it's not necessarily "her", as the damsel in distress-narrative was tried for a few days (fortunately, everyone but Puttitout saw right through it).
