Singular "they" has already been in use for generations to refer to persons of an unknown gender. Singular "they" is now being used by many as a gender-neutral pronoun for persons of a non-binary gender, even going so far as to be named the Word of the Year by the American Dialect Society. "It" is a gender-neutral pronoun which has been used to describe non-binary persons. However, "it" is dehumanizing and implies that a non-binary person is not a person. It makes the most sense to adopt singular "they" as an official gender-neutral pronoun because of how familiar it already is within the English language.
The use of singular "they" as a gender-neutral pronoun is grammatically incorrect. The only grammatically correct gender-neutral pronoun currently existing in the English language is "it."
[P1] People are familiar with using they/them as gender-neutral pronouns. [P2] Singular "they" should be accepted as an official gender-neutral pronoun for non-binary individuals.
