Figure 3 is a representation of the gender of the participants, and as evidenced below, 100% of the 257 respondents self-identified as female. The participants had the option to select male or female. In order to provide a more accurate representation, future studies will be inclusive of categories outside the traditional male/female dichotomy, such as intersex, trans male, trans female, and non-gender conforming to name a few. One respondent reports that she is a, “trans* male,” but adds that she presents as female, which explains her choice of “female” on the survey.
