Include Hän in English as the gender-neutral personal pronoun that treats everyone equally

In English “they” and “them” are plural and are confusing as a gender-neutral pronoun. “Hän is the gender-neutral Finnish personal pronoun that treats everyone equally. In the Finnish language, personal pronouns (words used as substitutes for a person’s name, such as he and she) do not specify whether the person discussed is a woman or a man. One word – hän – refers to women, men and people of other genders alike.”

  We need a new gender-neutral word in English. Why not Hän?
