I'm not normally a member of this community but figure it is a logical place to ask this so hope you won't mind.

For my Masters of Education research survey I am quite torn on what to use for demographic data regarding gender.

Now, personally, I am interested to see if there is any strong correlation between gender and use of arts however, in my opinion, your gender is what you identify yourself as. (One easy thing I could do but it would screw with my data I suppose is to allow people to check both. Which doesn't really solve the problem but is an amusing thought to me ;-)

Having said that - if anyone has ideas, suggestions or strong feelings on this feel free to weigh in here (or in my blog). I am allowing anonymous posting (in my blog - not sure I can allow it in a community). I may wimp out and default to "male/female" but if I can come up with a not-too-shocking way to be more inclusive and still be taken seriously I would like that.
