Also stop referring to a single individual as "they". Someone, anyone, and no one refer to one person.

Trump gave some private advice to a friend who had acknowledged some bad behavior toward women. "Real power is fear. It's all about strength. Never show weakness. You've always got to be strong. Don't be bullied. There is no choice.
"You've got to deny, deny, deny, and push back on these women," he said. "If you admit to anything and any culpability, then you're dead. That was a big mistake that you made. You didn't come out guns blazing and just challenge them. You showed weakness. You've got to be strong. You've got to be aggressive. You've got to push back hard. You've got to deny anything that's said about you. Never admit."

Do you mean the term for the person who's been banned or do you mean the plural of the word has been banned?

https://www.merriam-webster.com/words-at-play/singular-nonbinary-they

As a prescriptive grammarian, I consider it wrong since it violates pronoun-antecedent agreement. Despite predating Modern English, it is legitimately confusing in some instances. It's also not needed when referring to a hypothetical person who won't be offended (A person, the user, somebody). It also makes no sense when the speaker is certain of the antecedent's sex. It makes even less sense when a writer or speaker spontaneously switches between "they" and "he or she"; at least, pick one and stick with it.

This and not using the past participle in the present perfect and past perfect tenses are my two biggest peeves (e.g. "I should've went!", "I just got bit by a mosquito!"). EDIT: That last one is passive, not present or past perfect.

Whether it's grammatically correct or not if it makes someone feel more comfortable about their identity I think that's a net win.

Unpossible. It's 2018 now.
(...)Whereas back then I wrote about the tyranny of the majority, today I'd combine that with the tyranny of the minorities. These days, you have to be careful of both. They both want to control you. The first group, by making you do the same thing over and over again. The second group is indicated by the letters I get from the Vassar girls who want me to put more women's lib in The Martian Chronicles, or from blacks who want more black people in Dandelion Wine.
I say to both bunches, Whether you're a majority or minority, bug off! To hell with anybody who wants to tell me what to write. Their society breaks down into subsections of minorities who then, in effect, burn books by banning them. All this political correctness that's rampant on campuses is b.s.
