I really wish that they had an “other” when asking “male” or “female” on a survey. I always just feel like I’m answering wrong when it is only a binary choice.

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?

    depending on the form, I’ve actually drawn my own little box and put FTM. The person who reviewed called me up and told me that was the best thing she had seen in a while.

    I always put that option myself, as I’m not in the binary either.

    I know those feels.
    It’s especially annoying on online surveys because you can’t just draw another box. I have to really think about which box to choose. It takes like 10 minutes. How hard is it to add another option? I mean really?
