People whose pronouns are singular they (they/them), which reflexive do you think is correct?

People whose pronouns are singular they (they/them), which reflexive do you prefer others to use when talking about you?

(I suspect that there must be a fair few people who entered a binary sex that is different from their legal sex, and there was no answer option for them, so perhaps a lot of them said they "spoiled" it?)

Results, combining the Twitter and Mastodon answers and minus the "see results" responses.

About 20% of 296 respondents said they either "spoiled" the question or left if blank.

There were only 20 intersex respondents, but about 30% of them spoiled it or left it blank.

One day left on these two polls for and people! Would anyone be up for last-minute signal boost? :)

people in England, Wales and Northern Ireland, how did you answer the sex question in the UK census?

Just bumping a couple of polls about the English-Welsh-Northern-Irish Census that is taking place today!

As is traditional, a major life thing is about to drop in on me just when I want to be writing up some gender results. This time it's a house move, complete with significant square footage reduction!

Hopefully my internet supply won't be too badly interrupted. 🤞

Another option might be... to limit the survey to 40,000 responses per year? 🤨 (Very much not what I want to do.)

Money is a secondary consideration to user-friendliness, it doesn't have to be free - if I can't learn how to use it without going to uni then the Gender Census is kaput, y'know? So if it has to cost money to be solo-learnable (a real phrase) then I may have to crowdfund.

On that note! Statisticians, can you help out?

I'm going to need some software that can handle a LOT of calculations on a fairly average computer, involving probably 50,000 survey responses. The most important factor is user-friendliness.

Any recommendations?

I wish I could somehow crowdfund "Cassian learns a new software" - no amount of money will make my brain do the thing, you know?

Please note, this is very optimistic, I may not manage it because I have a LOT of fatigue today. On the other hand, it might be a pretty effective way to keep me resting on the sofa. 🤔

Bad news: This means I will definitely have to (*gulp*) learn new software and maybe even upgrade my computer in order to handle next year's responses, assuming they increase at a similar rate.

Good news: Maybe tomorrow I can start writing up the worldwide report for 2021??

Show thread

Good news: 44,583 usable responses!

Bad news: Responses alone use 4,592,255 cells on Google Sheets, which is 92% of the 5m cell limit, before I even start writing formulae to count everything!

Good news: I've split it into one Sheet per question, and the data is now processed!
