I can see the problem

I can see the problem here, refusing to use preferred pronouns is just rude but most people that I know accept they or them as a compromise without issue.

It is easy to write and speak in a gender neutral way.

What Cellio, I think was proposing was that being gender neutral was better than using preferred pronouns. It is not, but a hell of a lot better than point blank using the wrong one on purpose.
