1. For he or him after the verb be, see cases 2a.
2. For the expression he or she, see gender-neutrality.

• A child's sexual orientation is determined before s/he enters school —American Educator, 1978.

This written representation of ‘he or she’ as a gender-neutral pronoun is generally limited to the domain of reports and dead-pan English. Because it cannot be articulated, it is unlikely to penetrate further into the realms of standard usage. See gender-neutrality.
