I tried to take your survey but it kicked me out when I said that I wasn't bothered by pronouns? Like I didn't know how to answer that question because I wouldn't say that it's because I feel like all pronouns fit me but because of severe social conditioning to accept the pronouns I was born with has made me more numb than okay with all of them. I feel like your survey is going to leave out a chunk of people you want to talk to because you didn't take ambivalence through social coercion into acc
I don’t understand how this is a survey about pronouns if I can’t even tell you my preferred pronouns because your survey booted me two questions into it
There are three options in the first question:
- I want people to avoid using pronouns when talking about me, for example by using my name instead of pronouns.
- I don’t care at all what pronouns people use when they talk about me.
- I (mildly or strongly) prefer some pronouns over others.
If you’d like to specify the pronouns that you are happy for people to use when talking about you, choose the third one! And if you have no pronoun preference at all, literally all pronouns are totally equally acceptable, choose the second one.
The survey doesn’t boot you. It *does*, however, let you skip the “enter your pronouns here” part if you don’t have pronouns that you like more than others. If you choose “I don’t care what pronouns people use when they talk about me,” that is recorded and counted alongside other pronoun information that people are entering in the survey.
If you change your mind about what you picked you can click the “back” button in the survey to go back one page, or you can reload the survey page completely to start again from the beginning.
