No. Do not normalize singular neutral pronouns. They are not singular. It’s grammar, dumbass.
"Let’s go be pricks and use terrible grammar." Yeah sure, do whatever the fuck you want. Don’t talk to me.
"Some people object to the use of plural pronouns in this type of situation on the grounds that it’s ungrammatical. In fact, the use of plural pronouns to refer back to a singular subject isn’t new: it represents a revival of a practice dating from the 16th century. It’s increasingly common in current English and is now widely accepted both in speech and in writing.” -Oxford Dictionary

ok i’m getting pretty sick of seeing cutesy posts where people say being gay/lesbian is their form of birth control
because, yes, two cis gay men or two cis lesbian women cannot reproduce together, but a trans man and a cis man could, a trans woman and a cis woman could
but that’s the point. more casual cissexism that erases the existence and experience of trans folk. so please cut it out
