My problem with gender neutral pronouns is that they don't make sense based on the English language. Ze and hir seem fairly acceptable online, though I really think they look ugly. I have a fondness for se instead, it's just that z that makes me cringe. Hir sounds just too much like 'her' for my taste, so I prefer zir/sir/cir/pick yer poison. IRL I use they/them, and just make efforts to use gender neutral nouns and names. My sibling, my coworker, etc.
If someone told me they had a preferred pronoun though I'd try use it.
