I'm of the "mountain-out-of-a-molehill" opinion. I, a female, see nothing wrong with defaulting to a male pronoun. It is just a default. If we use a plural pronoun, it will also become a default, but one that is more awkward. That said, I agree with Marilyn and the CMOS that it may be best just to rewrite the sentence.
