Re: Gender Diversity in MySpace
I've forwarded my response and this e-mail thread onto [names clipped for privacy] TGV Committee; Seahorse Yahoogroup Appetitefordeconstruction Yahoogroup; TMGP List - there's another 150 or so.
Please feel free to pass my e-mail to myspace around - it may encourage ideas for others.
Go get 'em!
I totally support the comments below regarding norrie mAy-welby and for that matter any person to be allowed to express their gender they way they desire, not the way a "system" desires.
I also ask why myspace needs to ask this it all, as you don't ask people's race, religion, sexual orientation or other attributes.
I also ask how myspace would want people who legally have "I" on their birth certificates to identify. I am sure that to ask them to commit a lie and break the law would be inappropriate.
Please consider other options for this question, including "do not wish to answer."
Thank you for reading this response.
