I Find The Singluar Pronoun They / Them Difficult To Use

I am writing a review which includes two people of a non-conforming gender. Their preferred pronouns are "they / them" rather than "he / him" or "she / her".

I find the use of a traditionally plural pronoun applied to an individual to be confusing linguistically. I wish they would prefer something else.  And no, I don't have a witty example, I am being serious.
