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.
