My opinion on Wikipedia:Village pump (policy)#MOS:IDENTITY clarification

I'd like to point out that this whole survey process is pretty much invalid. Transgender people make up an estimated 2 to 5% of the population. [1]. The 2013 study The Wikipedia Gender Gap Revisited measured gender bias in survey completion and estimated that as of 2008, 84% of English Wikipedia editors were male. In the worldwide Wikipedia Editor Survey 2011 of all the Wikipedias, 91% of respondents were male. There are significant differences in the acceptance of trans people between males and females surveyed, with men being significantly less accepting than women of transgender individuals, with white males being the least accepting among males and with the widest gap between white male and white female opinions. [2] Somewhere between 58-63% of males are sports fans, while only 36-41% of woman are fans. [3]

So, 60% of the 84% male editor population is about 50% of Wikipedia editors, while 40% of the 16% female editor population is 6.4%. Even assuming the unlikely high number of 4.6% for the trans editor population, that puts the expected ratio of female+trans to male editors responding at 1 in 6. Basically, there is no possible way that the outcome can be anything but a "male sports fans" opinion, which would be in no way representative of what our readers want and would necessarily be significantly skewed toward the less accepting male view of transgenderism. Unless a better way can be found to do this, these results are completely invalid and should be ignored, leaving MOS:IDENTITY as it is, as the previous consensus was arrived at through discussion about transgender individuals who were not athletes, leading to a more balanced and more accepting result. That is, the past consensus more accurately reflects the general opinion of Wikipedia editors as the inherent biases were not exaggerated by the attraction of sports fans to the previous discussions.

Transparent (TV series) vandalism

Hi there! I found your name in the WikiProject LGBT studies and thought that you might be able to help revert vandalist edits to the article Transparent (TV series). Multiple anonymous accounts have lately changed "her" into "him" for a transgender woman. I have reverted several of these edits, and added a remark on the talk page. Would you please look into this, or suggest someone else's help? Thank you in advance. It may seem like a small topic, but I actually believe that TV series might be a good start to bring the topic to the attention of a wider audience. Mark in wiki (talk) 20:11, 3 July 2015 (UTC)


This should not even exist. The trouble is someone decided all schools are notable. Enigmamsg 15:03, 9 July 2015 (UTC)
