Regardless which terminology one chooses to use in teaching, it would be
irresponsible not at least to let students know the "sexist" terms exist
because they will be encountered in the literature.  That would be a fine
opening for the prof to explain the choice not to use them.

(Note the careful avoidance of "him" and "his" in the preceding sentence,
at the slight cost of specificity about whose choice, which observation
leans towards Dimitar's point.)
