Bil posted a survey last week to find out more about our readers' sex and sexual identities. The best part of the results is that I posted several surveys about three months ago on this site, and this survey got about twice as many responses as those did, so awesome!
But here are the results for the question about people's sex:
Gender Neutral 4%
The idea for this survey was sparked in the comments of the big Blogads survey that we have been posting about for the last month (the one that all the other blogs participated in), since we received similar results from the other survey. We hoped that asking the questions not using the Blogads survey's form would: a) encourage more people to respond since the Blogads survey was very long; and b) provide options for people who might not identify with one of the two sexes generally accepted as legible.
We got similar same result when it comes to men and women who read the site. It's a bit more balanced than the general Blogads results from last year, which said that 72% of blog readers identified as "male". Not many people identified as transexual or intersex before they identified as male or female, according to our survey.
The other question that we asked, about readers' sexual identity, got these results:
Not really surprised about these ones, considering most of the comments we get on here generally indicate that the commenter identifies as gay or lesbian or don't indicate anything in this category at all.
