@gendercensus because of queers position as an umbrella term, theres a lot of ‘soft’ identification with the word, which’d account for people clicking it once it’s an option, but not thinking to write it in

@Satsuma Yeah, some people have pointed out things along those lines, and if I look at it at the right angle the vaguer terms do seem to be selected more when they're added as checkbox options, so maybe that's it!

@gendercensus i agree that its a pretty dramatic jump, but I think in the context of umbrella terms its not necessarily an implausible jump?

I definitely checked it this year, despite not writing it in previously. I’m not actually 100% sure what I’d do if the check box said queer (as a gender term) or whatever but I definitely consider it an umbrella identity that I fall under so

@Satsuma I guess we will find out next year, when I make it a bit more specific. :)
