Destroy the Gender Binary

[Post text:

stop saying "his or her"

use "their"

piss off prescriptivists
acknowledge nonbinary identities
make your sentences less clunky
advocate for common usage which is what leads to grammatical acceptance]

There is literally no downside to using singular "they." Use singular "they" all the time, at every opportunity. Break down the gender binary. Crush it beneath your feet.

And piss off prescriptivists.
