Today I was going to write about the recent decision by the editors of the AP Stylebook—perhaps my least favorite guide, but one that wields enormous influence—to allow they/them/their as singular pronouns. I see, however, that the great Andrew Ferguson not only beat me to it, but did so in a way that should leave no question on the subject. So I’ll just point you to his takedown over at the Weekly Standard. If you care at all about language clarity, please give it a read.
