Hi! I am trying to look into the practice of using PGP (preferred gender pronouns) and have prepared a survey regarding its use (there is a short explanation of the whole idea in the survey). Would you be so kind and fill it out? I would also appreciate it if you could spread it among your friends and colleagues and share as much as possible. It would really help us get some real insights into how it's used. The more diverse responses the better, so please click the link no matter your political views

Thanks!

PS Do you have any experience in translating such pronouns into other languages? Are there any similar phenomena in your native languages?

PPS If you have any questions, suggestions or relevant comments, please contact me via siadlaks@gmail.com or within this thread

Survey only for "genderqueer" and "transgender" translators Sep 1, 2015



I got about halfway before I realised that two thirds of the survey assumes that I'm genderqueer or transgender. You should make the survey grey out questions that do not apply, based on responses earlier on in the survey.

Which question led you to believe that? Each question has answer options for any gender identity. Do you mean: "How often have people asked you about your PGP?"? If so, maybe I should have led with the information that at some universities it is a common practice to ask everyone about it.
