"Queer heterosexuality"[edit]

This has nothing to do with trans people. Tombomp (talk/contribs) 21:27, 23 December 2013 (UTC)


I think it would be interesting to make this sidebar a bit more general: it could be renamed to Gender instead of Transgender. To me, it would make sense to put the sidebar on the page Gender, and to include the gender identities woman and man. Intersex is a physical condition, and maybe no-one identifies themselves as such (?), but I think it should be included as well. A lot of (international) Wikipedia visitors who look for information about transgender may not know of the terms gender and intersex, and it's a good thing to invite these people to read about it.

It's possible that a separate list grouping for "Related concepts" would address this issue. Trankuility (talk) 10:53, 23 July 2015 (UTC)
Laurier, since this template is specifically about transgender aspects, I see no need to Rename it to Gender topics and/or broaden its scope. We have Template:Gender and sexual identities and Template:Gender studies for other gender matters; both of those templates are at the bottom of the Gender article. I'm also sure that people are generally familiar with the term gender. Also, regarding this edit you made to the Gender article, which I reverted (followup note here), that concerned a different transgender template: Template:Transgender sidebar.

I struck part of my post above because I remember that this is the talk page for Template:Transgender sidebar; the talk page name should align with the template name, though. Flyer22 (talk) 22:10, 23 July 2015 (UTC)
Okay, well, it was worth a try! ;-) I still think the term gender is not as familiar to a lot of (international) visitors as one might hope, but I know Wikipedia is not a dictionary and not an activist forum. Thank you for replying, though! Laurier (talk) 08:24, 24 July 2015 (UTC)

Add more on social issues[edit]

Hi, it would be helpful to add more links to social, political and legal issues, like Transgender people in sports. Maybe the legal section could be expanded? Trankuility (talk) 11:39, 29 May 2016 (UTC)
