Quantified Gender Tracking

National Geographic has interviewed Fawna Stockwell who figured out a way to track gender identity experiences. Fawna who was born female decided to track three metrics:

  • distress 0-10
  • identity [male <–> female]
  • expression through clothing

Fawna’s findings indicated that being male had a higher level of discomfort.

  1. Love this! What a unique data set!

    I would quibble with your observation that their findings “indicated that being male had a higher level of discomfort,” because their findings actually seemed, simply, to numerically demonstrate gender dysphoria. Their level of distress was highest when their gender identity was different from their gender assigned at birth.

    I’m sure you didn’t mean any harm in your analysis, but it implies a universality in the way that it’s worded which probably wasn’t intended. If you want to make that observation more specific, it might be better stated “Fawna’s findings indicated that at times when they identified as male, they experienced a higher level of discomfort.”
