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

But what’s wrong with inequality, anyway? Answers to this question are rarely satisfying, but they do serve as a political litmus test about the kind of inequality that matters. A Marxist might concern herself with how economic inequality divides society into classes, allowing capitalists to wield wealth as a weapon, disempower workers, and extract their labor. The humanitarian position tends to prioritize sufficiency of resources and basic rights; feminists, environmentalists, and advocates for the undocumented, the disabled, and minorities would say social inequalities matter, too, and that part of the problem with economic inequality is that it reinforces them.
New research has shown us that economic, social, racial, and gender inequality are inextricably linked—and that the effect of high inequality is to create even more inequality. Many other economists have shown that high levels of inequality hurt democracy because, among other things, they allow rich people and corporations to buy the support of politicians.

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.
