The tweets that follow are polls about it. Everyone should be able to vote in at least one, and there are "see results" options. Give it a watch and then scroll down.
Evening crowd - a thread of polls! ^
Many moons later, I finally get around to showing you the results to these polls.
There were under 40 usable votes for every group except nonbinary people, because everyone I know is nonbinary, oops. :D Here's a graph, anyway: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1MAQ91FsydHI3Wol8l45xRASRbcqsN71exaKMf1BuFLc/edit
I originally ran this poll because as far as I could see, the vast majority of noisy people on Twitter complaining to John Lewis about how disgustingly sexist this ad was were transphobes who otherwise tweet their anti-trans views frequently.
I wonder how those transphobes would feel if they knew that, in my poll at least, the demographic they're most likely to agree with is trans women.
A silly instance of Mastodon for queer folk and non-queer folk alike. Let's be friends!
