Job Hunting

Sigh.

As if filling out online applications didn't suck enough already, now ya can't even pick "Rather Not Say" when they ask for gender, anymore...

When the hell did that happen?

Even when I identified as male, I always chose RNS.

This is a real bummer...

I always find it to be a pleasant surprise when I get the choice of "rather not say". I don't see it very often. If I don't get it then when I can I leave it blank. I'm assuming the online application didn't give you that option. :(

Nope. Actually, I didn't see that option for Race, either.

What gives?

They didn't have the option for race either?! That's just wrong....I never want to reveal that in a job application...or any application for that matter. Who cares?

Maybe that's a sign...maybe you shouldn't work there :/

I am in the process of trying to refinance my home loan and one of the forms the lender uses offer the Decline to State option.

The Federal folk and some states collect demographic information to maintain adherence to the various programs they oversee. Their systems may only track male/female and the system burps when someone doesn't play the game correctly.
When writing the next chapter in your life, start with a pencil and eraser - my first page as Miki is full of eraser marks. Doodling is allowed. I have started a new chapter but will still use a pencil.
