Ok, but. . .I can see the "she" in danger and I can see the "he" in danger.
 I ponder, though - "it" in danger?  This "it" entity. . .how will I know
one when I see "it?"

I applaud your use of gender-inclusive language, but is my chair in danger?

Well, looking at "it" in a mega universal way, I guess my chair could be in
danger, although I wonder about its "power of discrimination."  And, Rilke,
my fave rave poet, did speak admirably of "Things."

I'm going to, after sending this, give my chair a great big hug.  Seriously.
