"my friend" is "he" or "it"? Any text looks more naturally to me with "he": "I ask my friend to call me tomorrow, but he doesn't want to do it". But if my friend is a woman? She? But if my friend's gender is unknown by context? For example, in the case when I mean by the word "friend" any of my friends and it can be either gender. It? Then text "I ask my friend to call me tomorrow, but it doesn't want to do it" sounds odd to me.
