Usage note
Themself has a long history of use in English and more recently has been adopted as the reflexive pronoun referring back to a singular gender-neutral antecedent, similar to the use of singular they. However, the pronoun themself is not considered to be standard English. A more acceptable alternative is the plural pronoun themselves, though its use with a singular antecedent is rejected as ungrammatical by some people. See also they.
