We talked this over and will be adding a 'Prefer not to say' option sometime soon, so be on the lookout for that! Thanks for the suggestionSorry for the double post, but I wanted to make sure that this particular post is seen.
This is kind of unrelated to the whole pronouns thing yet also kind of related, so I figure that I might as well just talk about it here. You know about the Gender field, right above the Pronoun field? Well, in my case, I’ve left it blank ever since I’ve been here at Bulbagarden, actually. Why? Mainly because I’ve never been fully comfortable with sharing my gender online, for reasons that are far too long and complicated for me to explain here. The best descriptor of my feelings would probably be “Prefer not to say”, but that’s never actually been an option here. There’s an “Other” option, yes, but I’ve as that implies, well, “other”, not really the specific thing that I feel. So since we’re on the subject of inclusivity and expanding options when it comes to expressions of gender here, I’m wonder if you all on the admin side might consider adding an option like “Prefer not to say”? I might not necessarily use it now, honestly — I’ve almost become comfortable with just leaving the field blank now — but I feel that it would’ve been nice to have around during those early days that I was here, and that it could be a thoughtful addition for others who have similar feelings that I do.
