Here's a question: why do we refer to Allah as "HE"? Allah has no physical attributes - it is generally agreed that the parts of the Qur'an which mention Allah (ta'aala) seeing, hearing, or with hands or sitting on the throne ('arsh) are purely metaphorical and that Allah has no physical attributes (other than the fact that the entire physical universe is an emanation of Allah ta'aala).
In Arabic, there is no word for "it," only pronouns which roughly correspond to the English "she" and "he." So does anyone object to referring to Allah as "It"? I anticipate people being opposed to that just based on the fact that it goes against tradition, but in this case tradition is imperfectly founded. In English this seems to apply the Christian idea that God is the "father," which thereby implies that God has given birth (and as we all know, lam yalid wa-lam yuulad). But in Arabic, maybe if there had been a neuter word like "it" this would not be the case.
Also, using the word "He" obviously perpetuates male hegemony. There's no reason that there can't be total gender equality and still preserve the message of Islam, and for that reason it seems like using "It" to refer to Allah ta'aala should be welcome. And if you object to this idea, can you point to anything about Creation that is inherently masculine such that the Creator would be masculine?
