Wanted to let this group know first that we just added some more options for our non-binary members. Well, one. Genderfluid. While I had thought that everyone is genderfluid to some extent, I realize that it's a good option for those members who have the luxury of not being attached to a single gender. Similarly, we added "Pansexual" and "Asexual" as options to the orientation question. What is your sexual orientation? I realize that there are many other gradients of gender roles and orientations but have to balance this and the ability to find members in search. I'm posting in this group first to let those who want to update their profile to do so... so that the search results return members. Also, can help find bugs. Frankly, the code for genders has become a bit complicated.
Ok, I need some help as to how can edit (hopefully just tweak) some questions/answers to address LGBT+ concerns while balancing the concerns of cis-gender people. For example, I just realized that "gender" What's your gender? has heterogeneous terms (e.g., "MALE" and "TRANS MAN" ). To express my personal feeling, I think it is counter-productive for the LGBT+ community to insist that straight men/women call themselves CIS MALE/FEMALE versus the LGBT+ community using it as a term for these genders. That is, allowing "MALE (ok MAN)" to be assumed CIS MALE is ok. Would the question make more sense to be "What is your gender / identity?".
