    It's okay to say they

    The non-binary pronoun 'they' has been added to the Merriam-Webster.

    —used to refer to a single person whose gender identity is nonbinary (see NONBINARY sense c)I knew certain things about … the person I was interviewing.… They had adopted their gender-neutral name a few years ago, when they began to consciously identify as nonbinary — that is, neither male nor female. They were in their late 20s, working as an event planner, applying to graduate school.— Amy Harmon
    Now everyone who was fretting about it being ungrammatical can just -relax and enjoy the freedom
