Singular Use of the Pronoun They Campaign Update

Hi,

if you signed this petition and wondered what's happening with it, check your inboxes because I sent an update on what's going on.  There aren't any great replies from politicians, so I'm just trying to make a change in society and culture at large on my own, but it would be better if you helped spread the word.  :)

Here is an example of what I sent into the Oxford Dictionary, as a new inclusion.
________________________________

they
pronoun/ singular  \ˈthā\

3.     A person who does not identity with either gender.  ie: Genderless or Agender.
