Please help my friend Rebecca

    My friend Rebecca is nearing the end of her diploma course, and she needs your help. As part of her research project she is researching the perception of some of the language and terminology you'll find in the DSM (Diagnostic and Statistical Manual). That's the document most of the world's medical profession look to for guidance on our diagnosis and treatment, so it's quite an important and interesting area of study.
    To gather the data for her research she's created an online survey, and she would be very grateful if as many of you could complete it as possible.

    You can find it here, at http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/LPMK35P.

    I'm sure she would also be grateful to any of you who could spread the survey to the widest possible audience, so if any of you are social media users please consider sharing it with your followers.


  1. I hope my little contribution helps her

  2. Likewise. I really couldn't answer one of the demographic questions, though: when one's current gender and birth sex differ, which one should be used to choose between 'male' and 'female'?

    Otherwise it looked promising. Any hope of seeing the results somewhere?

  3. Completed. Hope it helps as it's good to see this sort of research being done.

  4. I've posted it on a confidential Facebook group for members of the Gender Identity Clinic I attend. 5 responses so far and maybe more to come. xx

  5. Done. Is there a closing date?
