I was filling out a form which asked what my gender identity is. It lists transgender and female. I found it slightly confusing but checked female. Anyone know what this is all about?

Increasingly, a lot of social media is trying to be more inclusive.

It is possible it was permitting you the option to pick transgender or female.

Because to us, while they might seem the same, one allows you to be labeled as transgender, and the other just female and no mention of being a transgender female.

But where was the form.?

I earn a few shekels completing online surveys. It's very nice. They used to send a cheque for €50 after completing several. Now with covid they give virtual credit cards. Very nice.

They used to ask male or female but of late they allow other and indeed offer a box so you can add your own custom sexual identity. So nobody is offended. Although I do get offended when my age eliminates me. Grumble grumble.

What really annoys me is when they ask you your work status and they offer the option 'housewife'. How sexist is that?

Actually I'm lying, I always tick 'housewife' because that's me. Although of late they often use a gender neutral term. Damm them.

I am a housewife and I'm proud to be one like my Mother and three of my sisters.
