    thank
    I think you can use ( they ) to refer to any plural . People , things , places .. etc .


    Any way , let us wait more experience members to say if my answer is right or not .

    Only singular he/his and she/her/hers are gender specific. If plural they were gender specific, it'd have two forms, say, they (males) and shey (females). Hehe
