In case you missed the results of our demographic survey, two questions arose in the comments section from the results.
First, the gender breakdown for bilerico.com was a little surprising - and also a little simplified. For example, while the question asked about male vs female, several readers and contributors are transgender and don't fit neatly into one box or another. The scope of gender identity is a lot more broad than the question allowed for! But I'm still having a hard time wrapping my head around our readership being so overwhelmingly male.
All of which led into the discussion about what sexuality our readers identified with. This question wasn't asked on the survey (although I really wish it had been!). At former contributor Carrie Wooten's suggestion, we said we'd put up our own poll today asking about sexuality.
Since the survey was self-selecting and limited to only 79 respondents, I thought we'd put up these two polls to try and get a more accurate reading. Although this poll will obviously be self-selecting too, hopefully more readers will answer two simple questions. Please take the time to answer both questions - it'll only take a few seconds of your time. The poll will close at midnight on Sunday night and we'll post the results next Monday.
