Then it's probably a good thing that the English language has no
gender-neutral third person singular pronoun appropriate for
referencing a human being. Conventionally, the otherwise male pronoun
"he" is used to refer to any individual whose gender is not known to
the speaker. It offers no insult unless the recipient is looking for
an excuse.

The "what if he's a she" crack was stale when I was still in diapers
and the pedantic follow on discussion about what the gender neutral
pronoun should be is just as tedious.
