I don't know what to use in these sentences:
Every person has his own lifestyle.
Everybody has his own lifestyle.
his = male
her = female
its = thing
Can we just use his for everybody and every person?
That sounds a bit strange since not every person is male.
P.S: I know we could just say: "... has an own lifestyle", but I want to know the other way, too.
Thanks, but I always thought "everyone" is singular.
So I guess this is an exception
In another forum, I just got this link. I love it.

I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
