Please help keeping it alive!

I have a #pronoun conundrum. Suppose I'm introducing my doctor friend to someone. I would say, "this is Dee, he is a doctor" or "this is Dee, she is a doctor". So if I was using the singular they, would I say, "this is Dee, they is a doctor"? Replacing "is" with "are" would sound more natural but would that deny the singular nature of the "they"?

I find this picture so incredibly moving. This is @GretaThunberg@twitter.com aged 15, sat alone outside the Swedish Parliament Aug 2018 - the first school strike. In just one year, she’s created a wave that will change the whole world. Never underestimate the power of one young person 💜💚
Just re-upping this offer: because being comfortable with git is a barrier to entry to many FS/OSS projects, and because I care deeply about lowering those barriers, I will tutor anyone who asks for help with git, and/or connect them with any mentor(s) they might prefer.
I'll do this while I put energy and work into making the tool more approachable, and into making better tools and learning paths.
Boosts gratefully appreciated.
As someone who has always worked shifts, it amazes me that it's always so much quieter on Sunday morning than any other weekday morning. We're constantly told that we live in a 24/7 world. (Probably by people who are still asleep at 7am on a Sunday morning.) Cycling through the deserted city is kind of cool though.
If someone had the fortune to be able to save 100% of a six-figure salary (say, $100,000/year in this case), it would take 10 years to save up 1 million. It would take 10,000 years to save up 1 billion.
Billionaires should not exist. Not in a perfect world, and certainly not in our imperfect one.
