    They/them are plural words. Not for individuals.

    For those that want pronouns, I always say mine are "your highness".

    I have no understanding of this 'pronoun' business, and even less desire to learn.

    Not that I think you care but, technically "They" is singular AND plural same as "You" can be. It definitely has been widely used historically as plural so it sounds odd to use it singularly. I think society was more prone to use "It" but I'm pretty sure the They/Them crowd didn't like "It" so they found "Them" in the Webster's dictionary to also be singular and that sounded better to them.

    All I know for sure is using Shh-he or He-She to describe a T is not going to go over well but, I think it best describes the direction of transition which I always find confusing.

    Here's the weird thing about the pronoun business. You usually use them when you are discussing the individual with someone else. In other words, not directly adressing the individual. If "they" are that concerned about how other people talk about "them", "they" need to harden the f*uck up.

    Not at all. I can't recall a time I've spoken about someone and referred to the person as them or they. Those words are reserved for multiple individuals.

    With regards to the pronoun Olympics........not going to play the game.
