That's a new one...;)


Why discriminatory?
It's only how Mother Nature made us. *smiles*

I see nothing wrong with showing who you are, or who you feel you are.
Plus, everyone can choose to do so or not.

Edit: OH, you guys were speaking of Female Option now showing? It shows for me, but not any of them actually save for showing up when I post.
Luckily my avatar say's everything! *laughs*

Blessed be!

I know this is sort of an old post, but for what it's worth... Gender identity and sexual identity aren't the same thing.

I think non-binary, trans, gender-fluid, and other should be options.

if there could be transwoman, transman, that'd be cool too. idk i guess i personally don't think it'd complicate things having a lot anyway, since all you gotta do is scroll and pick, and most folks will pick once and forget about it anyway, and the benefit would be increased inclusivity and validation.

I don't feel gender should matter it has nothing to do with the Craft. I don't think the Gods/Goddesses much care how we humans wish to identify or function sexually. We are free to think and do as we will so long as we harm none. This issue is really nobodies business nor should it be anyone's concern. We are ONE gathering of "Wise Ones".

For some people, gender identity is an intrinsic part of who they are, and it affects every aspect of their life, including the Craft. I encounter that every shift I work. We may be on our path to an enlightened place where gender doesn't matter, but we have far to go. I think we owe it to the membership to respect their wishes in matter of gender identification.

Certainly if gender concerns are significant to one of our own we must respect whatever such concerns may be what is not important to me may well be paramount to others. Good point SnowCat.

Hello! I realize I haven't been on the site long and this post is old but I noticed this post and thought that my view might be a little useful, as a Transgender person myself.
First of all, "Other" is...a little offensive. Not the biggest deal, but wording does matter, and "Other" basically feels like Trans people are "the other" (aka not normal). I realize that wasn't the intention, but it is how it feels.
Since Trans Men are men and Trans Women are women, the option of "trans" does not make much sense, especially it being separate from Gender Fluid (as Gender Fluid is under the umbrella term of Transgender). To me, it would make the most sense to have "Man," "Woman," and "Nonbinary" but that's just how I see it.
Thanks for reading and I hope this made even a little bit of sense.

I think "Other" was in the sense that as workers of and in other realms places not of this world, and some people feel to be part Faye among Other things, that was why that was chosen, But then as I remember Starwitch said the board is set up to only have like 4 options...actually I'm rather offended that the female option doesn't work..LoL I tried to address this before, no one seems to listen :(
