Singular They, Them
I agree with the above-stated opinions that #3 is probably the best bet.

It doesn't surprise me that you would think that the audience may think negatively about the author for using #3.  After all, we're living in the age of the "easily offended" these days.  Taking that into account, it would not bother me in the slightest if some were to be offended, put off, or whatever the case may be, by me using a phrase such as that.  I've learned a long time ago that you can't please everyone.  I always tell people that when it comes to anything you say or do, "those that matter don't mind and those that mind don't matter".  It may not be grammatically correct, but it gets the point across.
