The grammar queen is not amused
From the Associated Press today:
"Officials say a Spirit Airlines flight leaving Las Vegas was briefly delayed after a passenger removed all their clothes while boarding...."
OK, I do not condone, but I do understand, using "their" as a singular pronoun when you don't know the gender of the antecedent person.
I find it difficult to imagine that excuse applying in this situation.
