Still No Gender-Neutral Singular Pronoun

I used to get really irked by the use of “they” for he/she or s/he. In fact, I generally prefer a more elegant solution to this problem by rewriting the sentence into a version that requires a “he,” a “she,” or a “they” in a grammatically correct sentence, but I do understand that it is a real problem in English.

Today this article from the guardian addressed this issue:

It looks like we’re still not any closer to a solution to this issue.
