Hello! I'm looking to get some opinions and advice on how to list certain gender identities, or more specifically how to properly group them for a directory that acknowledges them as not conforming to what some would call "more traditional societal norms". I don't want to offend or disrespect so I would appreciate all input, please and thanks!
In the interest of honesty I originally created a NON-BINARY directory, in which I was putting non-binary, genderfluid, genderneutral PBs, but I was given some advice that it might be better to use a broader term because not all of those individuals would identify with the non-binary tag even if I went on to specify in the icon entries how they do identify. I changed it to OTHER but I can understand why that might seem disrespectful or even dismissive and obviously that's not what I want either.
So yes! I would very much appreciate suggestions and input from any/everyone who sees this post in order to properly represent all gender identities we have ♥!
FOLLOW UP: I would also appreciate advice on whether it would be best to list trans-individuals in the gender directory with which they would identify, so a trans-woman like Peppermint (of Drag Race fame) would be in the Female directory because that's how she identifies. Thoughts and opinions on this matter as well? ♥
