Singer Sam Smith has announced he wants to be referred to as "they" rather than "he", six months after revealing he doesn't identify as male or female.

Sky News respects Smith's wishes and will refer to him as they in the rest of this article.

Smith posted on Instagram on Friday confirming earlier reports suggesting the British star wanted the pronoun change. ..................

My complaint would be that ' They ' is already a pronoun for more than one person.
A separate pronoun such as ' Ze ' would be better.

Ze – pronounced “zee” –and its variations: zir, zem, and zeir, are gender-neutral pronouns that can be used to refer to people who are non-binary, genderfluid, genderqueer, trans, and/or don’t identify with the gender binary. .............

this is all nonsense from attention seeking crazies. There are 2 genders , male and female. some people have a genuine need to change sex, those that want to label themselves are mentally ill or just stupid. If you are a bloke you are HE, if you are a woman you are SHE.

If you are a one hit wonder with a flagging career you call the papers and tell them you want to be called THEY.

and while we are at it, polyamourous is just a modern term for slags, be they male or female
