survey question

I've never seen four choices for "gender" on a survey before.

    Actually four...I wonder what "other" is...half-way there?

    Ah, thanks for pointing that out! I can't imagine who would choose "other". My school is very accepting of all genders, eh? ;D

    That's so awesome. My school only has two choices for gender, which makes me sad.

    @Vidalia- There's actually many more genders than this. Someone who is intersex may choose "other". Someone like me, whom is neither male nor female would also choose "other". Do not confuse sex with gender- sex is biological and determined by chromosomes, gender is cultural definition of masculine feminine or otherwise and different cultures have different numbers of genders and different definitions of said genders.

    @roboppy thank you for this image and offering it as noncommercial creative commons. It's being used for a school powerpoint presentation.

    Other would, presumably, be someone who was born intersexed (possessing biological bits of both sexes), or having XXY or XYY genes, although I'm not sure why someone would want to go out of their way to declare any of those on a survey.

    Kay Rhodes auricankh Very delayed reply here, but thank you for the explanations! "Other" makes more sense to me now than it did 7 years ago.
