Can we use singular pronoun for referring to "everyone"?

1

If both sentences are true, how can we justify them? Can we use singular pronoun for referring to "everyone"?

  1. I bet everyone regardless of genders can find at least one item [they love].
  2. I bet everyone regardless of genders can find at least one item [he/she loves].

I appreciate your participation, but I wonder if these two sentences are grammatically correct? and if they are, how can we justify using singular pronoun for referring to subject "everyone"? – Shahab – 2019-12-01T08:02:03.910

Oof. So topical with regard to the site. But, duplicate question. – BadZen – 2019-12-16T18:34:45.707
