This has been bugging me for a while. From a recent post I just made:
Anyone who considers themselves to be a beer drinker...
I typed "themself" at first, but that doesn't work because it's not a word. You can't turn the "self" singular and leave the "them" plural. Then I typed "himself", but I'm not necessarily referring to only males. I'm not comfortable saying "themselves" (though that's what I went with) because the subject ('anyone') is singular.
How do you turn himself/herself/themselves into a sexually ambiguous yet still singular referral?
