=Clarification for gender "other"=
 
 
 
The proposal is to add this paragraph to the ''Gender'' chapter in [[Style/Artist]]:
 
    The 'other' gender option is meant to represent a gender that is neither male nor female, and is not intended
 
    for use with entities for which the concept of gender is illogical, such as companies.
 
 
 
The reason is that the "other" option was meant as a neutral/umbrella term for transgender artists, not as a ''none'' or ''n/a'' option. If such an option is wanted, it should be introduced as fourth option, and e.g. groups should also be (implicitly) set to this type.
