A consultation on the identity question in the Gender Census annual survey:

The identity checkbox list is getting very long! I have some thoughts about what I could do about this, but I want to check how you all feel about them first.

The worldwide report for the 2022 Gender Census is now published: gendercensus.com/results/2022-

It's about language preferences about genders beyond the binary.

You can also read a summary of the big three questions (identities, titles and pronouns) here: gendercensus.com/results/2022-

“Male infants walk earlier, but do so after greater motor encouragement; female infants talk earlier, but are usually spoken to more. Men tend to outperform women on ‘mental rotation’ tasks, that is, when visualising the way an object would appear from a different vantage point. But the difference isn’t observed in young children and is more reliably correlated with time spent playing computer games: it’s less a question of neuroanatomy than of who has a Nintendo”

A reminder that there's a test question survey open at the moment, and your answers and feedback help me to design a better title question and a good first "family terms" set of questions for 2023:

Hi folks!

If everyone in the whole world [whose gender isn't adequately expressed or defined by the gender binary of M/F] could please take part in these test questions, it will really help a lot in the design of the 2023 Gender Census...

Thank you!

I've just done some tweaking of the title question on the test questions survey, and I'm currently looking to hear from people whose title is Mistrum, and also people whose title is very uncommon!

I've made a public spreadsheet so that you can see how many participants there have been, see if your country or gender are well-represented, and easily find share links for social media:

I sent out a mailing list email about the test questions survey (and told subscribers about the consultation outcome), and now the test questions survey is up to 1,600 participants and still climbing fast.

It only opened this morning - take part here: docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAI

TL;DR: We'll be switching to the new system for choosing the checkbox identities for the 2023 survey.

Quick vibe check - does "dyke" have a binary gender opposite?

I've made a spreadsheet that you can copy to your own Google Drive, and then choose up to four countries to limit the data to and see results for only those countries: docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d

WARNING: It will take *ages* to load. Don't panic if it's empty, just wait.

@gendercensus Sure sounds like this study will continue, at least: "We anticipate that most of [the families who did not take par tin the last two years] will be able to participate as we continue to follow these youth."

Gender Identity 5 Years After Social Transition (July 2022, no paywall)

97.5% of trans youth were still trans five years later.

I think this is pretty long-term, for this kind of thing? Something even longer would be great!

What is the best fruit???

People who identify with the word "fem", what is its opposite?
