Just let people fill in a blank it is truly not that hard
You can even have "man" and "woman" as options! Just let people describe themselves uniquely if they choose!
I actually wrote an entire thread on this!
Please read to make your gender surveys actually inclusive of trans and intersex people.
@UCSF You can do better by trans people AND make your surveys much simpler!

A lot of why I run this account, with as much honesty as I can muster, is because I truly believe that by being openly and passionately myself, I can help humanize trans people against the literal armies of those who want to dehumanize us.
I make myself vulnerable, often to those exact people who want to dehumanize and villify me, in order to show you that trans people are real. We aren't a hashtag, or a wedge issue, or a fetish. We're living, breathing human beings, with hopes and fears and lives we live.
I try to keep this account positive. I try to showcase trans joy, and success, and how much love trans people have to give.
But I'm afraid.
We're all so, so afraid.

Don't use the acronym "LGBT" if you're going to ignore transgender people.
Most recent example I've seen, although this phenomena is incredibly common.
"LGBT" is NOT synonymous with diverse sexualities only. It also includes gender diversity, and ignoring this fact actively harms and marginalizes transgender people.

If you are interested in doing work (a few hours a week, ideally) to organize against the legislative efforts against trans people in the United States right now, when would you be able/willing to attend a zoom meeting on the topic?
I’ve been given an opportunity to formalize work like this, but will need help from those willing!
If you are genuinely interested in assisting with this work, please dm me!
