omg i just wanna interrupt my reading of this to say that i notice it/its are one of the top 5 pronoun sets and this pleases me greatly :3

(also thanks for all your hard work! it's always very exciting to see you've posted the report)

@gendercensus
oh, regarding the 'person' thing - a possible option could maybe be to have the option of "person (partially or completely in relation to gender)" like you do with queer, gay, and lesbian? could be interesting to see what happens there!

babbling about gender 

@gendercensus
i can kinda understand it tho - at this point the two main ways i would describe myself are "neither" and "me", both with a feeling of forcefulness or insistence behind them, probably because i don't have a gender at all, and like I've noticed how much people literally prioritise gender over personhood - "that man on the bus" "the lady at the checkout" etc. instead of "the person."

@gendercensus
> And binary genders get used as nouns too - we get "Nonbinary person" or "they are agender," but with binary folk it's "woman" or "she is *a* woman"

so i can see why a lot of us might want a noun ('person'), too

babbling about gender 

@certifiedperson Yeah, this is definitely a good point! It's not gender-specific but people have mentioned wanting nouns as well as adjectives. Thanks, that's good to add to the pile of thoughts on this issue.
