@mxsiege where does this actually show up
@er1n nowhere public, its part of their dataset.
@mxsiege oh weird
@er1n how do you mean?
@mxsiege that you enter this but it's entirely internal and shows up nowhere on the frontend? must just be for like, analytics or recommendations then :p
@er1n Yep. The designer behind it did a lecture which is viewable online somewhere titled "My gender is pizza" if i remember, and they go into why their first instinct was to ask why do they even need a gender field but finding out it was important. Cant remember the specifics but i think it was to do with how you need to know if your media is too heavily slanting towards men etc.
@Jewbacchus what a great shrimp bop
