They is still appropriate in the way I used it.

If you want to keep the gender unstated, write "he or she". "They" is not a singular pronoun.
I'm pretty sure you can use "they" to describe one person. While using "he" or "she" would have worked much better, "they" is still correct.
Can you read? The antecedent in your post was "somebody", which is singular, so the pronoun must be singular. The wikipedia page clearly stated that "they" is a plural pronoun - not singular!. If you want the pronoun to be gender neutral, then write "he or she".
