Pronoun equality, booyah!

In exciting news, the Associated Press will allow the singular “they” as a gender-neutral pronoun as long as you “explain in the text that the person prefers a gender-neutral pronoun” and take care “that the phrasing does not imply more than one person.”

It a baby step, but for now I’ll take it as genuine progress.
