@val also English : the word "themselves" exists, so they can be singular
@valThis is already so regional though. Singular "they" is uncommon but totally valid and not at all eyebrow raising here in Ireland.
@valLike, if someone comes at me about singular "they" over here I would automatically assume they developed the aversion *because* of anti-queer sentiment, because to argue about it otherwise would seem odd and dumb.
