making straight people have to choose 'other' and write it in is praxis
@FuchsiaShock holy shit yes
@feld @FuchsiaShock there's something cathartic about seeing heterosexism flipped on its head. that doesn't make it a fetish, it just means there's something enjoyable in being in a community that sees queer sexual orientations as the default, instead of being constantly reminded that you exist in the margins.
@FuchsiaShock Also, there's no radio button for "other". Does that form even work like that? Would be even more realistic if straight people are getting denied to answer 😂
@FuchsiaShock Honestly, as a straight, cis, white male, I love this.
Anything that shakes me out of complacency is *wonderful*
@FuchsiaShock honestly, straight is a nonsense category. "Other" makes a lot more sense
@FuchsiaShock prefer not to say (being straight is deeply shameful and the loathesome sin best left unnamed)
@FuchsiaShock nice. nothing like getting straight to point ....
@FuchsiaShock On a more serious note I feel like survey questions about gender or orientation should just be a single blank box (like it should be with names and addresses) because it's really hard to capture variety and entropy in this. Maybe except when you're interested in a single category, where I feel like I'd go e.g. "gay vs. not gay".
@FuchsiaShock why the hell do they need to know that ?
@FuchsiaShock the straight person that compiled the form, before, during, and after realising what they did.
@FuchsiaShock We can make that happen for genders too:
- More of this than that;
- Prefer not to say;
A silly instance of Mastodon for queer folk and non-queer folk alike. Let's be friends!
