Yay for places/things/whatever that are inclusive of groups that are otherwise marginalized or invisible!

First of all, Scarleteen is super awesome at being inclusive!

But second of all, the thing which inspired this post was a survey that was conducted in my class a few days ago (I think it was for a Mathematical Statistics Class). There were the run of the mill questions: age, grade, favourite colour and gender . The options included, as expected male and female, but they also included "other (please specify). It's not much, but it is something. It would have been phenomenal to have seen some actual options, but it was awesome to see people recognizing that there aren't just two genders. It made me really hopeful that the world will change for the better in terms of being accepting.

Oh, I love 'other' boxes. It's such a tiny thing, but so powerful, needed and groundbreaking. Thanks for posting this, Moonlight; it's a HUGE yay! [Smile]
