At Language Log, Geoffrey K. Pullum says it's correct for a person to use my preferred genderless pronoun any time they want.
Gelernter thinks singular they was invented by post-1970 feminist “ideologues”, rather than a use of pronouns having a continuous history going back as far as a thousand years.
Shakespeare used it! And Jane Austen!

So there!
