    For Mr/M[r]s people sometimes use Mx, and there might be other ways to do it too! They/Them/Their/Theirs works as a gender neutral singular pronoun.

    In English?  Forget it. Such words would "confuse" people and make their heads explode.

    The Swedes adopted the Finnish word "hän" for the third person singular whose sexe is unknown or irrelevant. Esperantists use "ri" and/or "ŝli", and the respective possessive pronouns "ria" and "ŝlia"

    Some Dutch use the possessive pronoun "zaar"

    Don't be ridiculous.  The 99.6% of us who identify as male or female aren't going to start being "it" for the .4% who don't identify with either gender.

    Talk about the tail wagging the dog.
