I just added the above to my userinfo... so let me explain.
gender_petition's goal is for LJ to add at least one alternative to the LiveJournal userstats where you can choose "male" or "female" (you do have the option to leave it blank).
One alternative discussed is to add "other" as an option. They're waiting for the community to reach a membership of 1000 before voting on what precisely to petition for. So join if you're interested!
I must say LJ has been more responsive already than the website where I brought this up to the admins myself. I was basically told to get a life. Those who have been there get no points for guessing which site I mean.
