Calling all followers of our main account on lgbt.io! 馃攰

This account is our back-up, until the issues on lgbt.io are resolved. It'll become our main account if lgbt.io goes down permanently.

If you've got + / / followers, boosting this post would be a big help, because at the moment posts aren't federating from .io, and account migration isn't working at all.

Thank you. :)

Hello, new Fediverse members!

This is the account for the annual Gender Census (gendercensus.com), a survey for anyone whose gender isn't fully expressed or encompassed by the M/F gender binary. In 2021 there were 44,000 participants!

The survey's purpose is to make free-to-read reports about the language we use to describe ourselves: identity words, pronouns, and titles.

The data is then used in business, academia and activism.

I would like to (dis)prove something my transphobic father said.
#transgender people, did you choose a name that鈥檚 a diminutive of or sounds like your deadname?
Preferably boost for a larger sample size.

TL;DR:

Nonbinary people were the most likely to be pro-choice.

Cis men were most likely to be pro-life.

Cis men were most likely to be unsure/"other".

No group contained under 95% pro-choice, probably due to the epic bias of the social media circles this account attracts!

So, after five one-week long polls on abortion, with the following participation:

- Nonbinary people: 1,206
- Cis women: 703
- Cis men: 423
- Trans women: 392
- Trans men: 366

Here's the results:

There are 17 hours remaining on these polls, and the first poll has almost 300 votes! I'll be making some tidy graphs of the results when they're all closed.

The number of participants in various gender categories so far over Twitter and Mastodon, minus "see results" votes:

- Nonbinary people: 1,159
- Cis women: 689
- Cis men: 405
- Trans women: 372
- Trans men: 357

Show thread

Four days to go, and participation looks like this:

- Nonbinary people: 1,090
- Cis women: 656
- Cis men: 387
- Trans men: 345
- Trans women: 331

Also, the genders at the pro-life end of the scale have rearranged a little as the polls have gotten boosted further out!

I've had a couple of comments that have made me go "hmmmm" so just to clarify:

Pro-choice vs. pro-life is less about what you would personally want for yourself if you got pregnant, and more to do with what you want as a general rule to apply to all people who can get pregnant.

Current participation:

- Nonbinary people: 710
- Cis women: 428
- Cis men: 273
- Trans women: 239
- Trans men: 221

Someone made a good point, so I'll add this:

If you feel for whatever reason like it's not your place to have an opinion on it (or you just don't have an opinion on it), but there is a poll that represents your gender, please choose "other" so that you are counted in the total for your gender!

Show thread

Thank you, everyone. :)

If you are up for RTing that'd be a big help - obviously the majority of our followers are nonbinary, so anything anyone can do to get the poll in front of cisgender and transgender men and women is much appreciated.

If there are lots of votes I'll update this thread with some graphs when the polls close.

Thanks again!

Here's a thread of polls on abortion; everyone of any gender should be able to participate.

Boosts are encouraged and appreciated, to get the polls out and circulating outside of our usual nonbinary bubble.

If you identify as more than one, e.g. nonbinary man, genderfluid cis man/trans woman, vote in as many polls as you feel apply.
