The seventh annual international Gender Census 2020 is now open until 12th March!

It's for anyone whose genders (or lack thereof) aren't described by the M/F binary. It's short and easy, and the results are useful in academia, business and self-advocacy.

I just uploaded the spreadsheet of responses into Google Sheets, and with over 24,500 rows and over 100 columns I'm already halfway to the Google Sheets hard limit of 5,000,000 cells per workbook... 😅

Here's a blog post about how the survey's closed now and what happens next.

TL;DR: My health is a bit unreliable at the moment so I can't give you an idea of how long it will take, but I'll do what I can and keep you all informed.

The survey is now closed!

Thank you everyone for your participation and promotional assistance, it has been phenomenal. I'm sure I'll find a handful of responses that need deleting, but we currently have 24,576 responses. 😵

If all goes to plan I'll be closing the survey in a few minutes/hours...?

Get your last-minute signal boosts and answers in now!

Survey of everyone whose gender transcends/rejects/is teflon to the gender binary:

This #poll would appreciate 1,093 votes, please!

Which of the following best describes how you think of yourself?

Unrelatedly, we just went over 23,000 responses! 🎉

I definitely won't be able to work on the stats for at least a few days, and we even have a few weeks left on the survey subscription, so it won't cost more.

(Participants from previous years will be familiar with this attitude. :D)

So, the survey was due to close no earlier than today at noon UK time (about an hour ago), and I'm due to go to a family celebration thing tomorrow, and my health isn't great.

For this reason, the survey will stay open for a few more days, because why not?

We have now more than doubled the previous record, with well over 22,600 responses!

I'm going to take a couple of days off before the survey closes, since my health hasn't been great lately. Thank you everyone so much for sharing!

🇳🇴 alle transpersoner i Norge er invitert til å delta i denne uformelle undersøkelsen om kjønnsidentitet

We're over 22,000 responses, and less than 50 from doubling the previous record. 2 days left.

If your (or lack thereof) is not reflected in or adequately described by the gender binary of M/F, please do take a look:

17 responses until 22,000. Less than 600 until we double the previous record. 4 days left.

Can you share the link? The more diverse the responses, the better! AFK spaces and spaces with people over 30 are especially good. :)

There are 5 days left, and we are well on the way to doubling the previous record! We only need 180 responses per day.


The survey, for folks whose genders (or lack thereof) defy/transcend/confuse the binary of M/F:

This came up yesterday on another account and I'm curious to know what the numbers look like. :)

Those of you with phobias, how do you feel about words like transphobia, homophobia, etc. to describe bigoted attitudes/acts?

Boosts are helpful to get many diverse responses!


A few hours ago we got to 21,000 participants, we're on track to double our record by the deadline on 12th March, and over 15% of respondents are 31 or older now so those Facebook sharing efforts are really working!

If your defies the binary:


- There is no clear and sharp line delineating binary and nonbinary experiences of gender.
- Gender-critical women’s experiences of gender are often strikingly similar to nonbinary experiences of gender.
- Abusive, insulting and transphobic responses are removed.

On gender-critical women in the Gender Census:

I've been considering this issue for years, reading thousands of gender-critical women's responses, and it's not been easy to decide how to handle it!
