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."

> 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 

@gendercensus
(im not stopping ahaha whoops) and i just remembered how when with a bunch of 5&6 year olds when they found out i wasn't a boy or a girl i was asked what i was and i just kinda shrugged and said "im a person."

(and one kid went "[wrong pronoun]'s a [other binary]!" and another went "no, [wrong pronoun]'s a /person/!")

and yeah, one could get into "why do they see themselves as a gender more than as a person" but uh. yeah.

@gendercensus
also i find it really interesting that you found that Mx. is mostly gender inclusive, because personally i see it as gender exclsuive* to nonbinary folk, with Ind. being inclusive.

*gender 'exclusive' in the way that, say, 'she' is considered exclusive to women, but also anyone can use it if they decide it fits them better. But maybe that's why most people who used Mx. saw it as inclusive?

@certifiedperson I was pretty careful with the wording of the question, but also it was a while ago so I can't remember all the details! 😁 I'd quite like to run that survey again, actually, to see if the data can be improved...
