Talk:Be a member of Wikimedia Belgium
Why this detail?
In the same spirit of equality and diversity upheld by Wikimedians all over the world since the beginning of the movement, I am drawing attention to the label of 'gender' required on the membership form. Is this supposed to matter or even get asked to join a Wiki affiliate? Danidamiobi (talk) 08:16, 19 September 2018 (UTC)
- Do not search too far... we only want to address a person with the right "title". As documented in our GDPR policy the gender is only used to have the right title "Mr.", or "Ms.", but it is not a mandatory attribute. So basically we do not care about gender. Any person is welcome in our organisation... Mostly the gender is pretty clear from the first name, although I acknowledge that some ambiguity might arrive... but this should never be a problem.
