comment How can I deal with diverse gender identities in user profiles?
Even if you don't buy the idea that gender is a better predictor of behaviour (and I think you'd be at best misguided to say it isn't), you're supposed to be UX people. Think about the users.

Actually, you guys are hilariously wrong. If you're collecting data on sex/gender for demographic purposes, you're typically doing it so you can make predictions about what the groups do, or get insights into their behaviour. In this case it's unhelpful to ask about sex over gender; since sex is more physical than psychological, it is a strictly worse predictor of behaviour than gender is. This doesn't even begin to touch on the fact that telling a transgender person that their gender doesn't matter and that their biological sex is the thing you care about is both dehumanising and backwards.

@BenBrocka to reduce load on your cisgendered users you could probably have the textbox appear only after you selected Other.

@PeterBagnall Gay and Bi aren't genders, they are sexual orientations. Neither are masculine or feminine, which are characteristics or traits. Male, Female, Agender, Genderqueer and so on are examples of genders.
