comment How to show two options without preferring one over the other initially?
@Blam It is not about the bias of the answer, but about the bias of the questioner. More important/frequent answers are usually placed before less important ones so the user reaches them sooner.

I would assume an answer in the same language as the question, but it certainly isn't perfect. It solves the bias, but makes it a lot harder to use.

Unfortunately, business decisions and user interface design decisions do not always align :-) And sometimes, knowing the gender can be a valid and political correct requirement, for example in the medical field.

When you have more than two options, you can fall back on alphabetical order to avoid accusations of bias. So the problem is mainly when you have just two options.

Saw this post too: ux.stackexchange.com/questions/13413/… Which gives the: "how do you identify yourself" suggestion. I like that.

@Pascal: I have been thinking about making it random... However, the trade-off is predictability, which I hold higher than political correctness, in interfaces. :-)

@Izhaki: The context is gender. And some people are quite sensitive in this matter.

Maybe it is time to add a new pattern for these situations. (Opinions on the importance of this particular context may differ :-))
