Kate, thank you so much for writing this. I think this information will be so helpful to a lot of us. As a web services person who gets tasked with building a lot of forms, I really appreciate you taking the time to write and to share.

For example, I disagree with their use of female/male instead of woman/man because that opens up a giant can of worms as to whether some terms are strictly biological versus social. It's a critical studies minefield pit at times. However, their approach and options are worth pointing out.

> Note several important differences. First, the third option is not "Other" but specifically states "Non-binary/third gender." Other is not a great term to use when asking about someone's identity. It's problematic. It focuses on a person being so different you can't find the words. It's... um... OTHERING... literally. To help you understand why this is hurtful, take any diversity question (race, religion, gender, etc.) and take the entry you would select and change the text to Other. It casts you as so unimportant to not specify it. Your identity belongs in a junk drawer.
> 
> Also note that the question includes an option self-describe. Language is fluid, and identity language doubly-so. No fixed answer survey question for identity will ever be perfect. Let there be a self-description field. All good survey software allows such an option. And yes, this does make data analysis more complex, but that's the price in wanting to do research in human diversity. 
> 
> The HRC's second question asks if a person identifies as transgender? This is important as it complements the previous question. I'll use myself as an example. I am a trans woman. I identify as a woman and would answer such on the first question since it makes no distinction as to trans or cis status. I also identify as transgender as I see it as a different perspective on a being a woman than if I were cisgender. I would answer yes to the second question as I see it providing more info to the survey that may be relevant. But my answers alone would not be the only groupings you may see. This added question allows for more coverage of respondent answers.
