On application why do they put "other" when you mark your gender?
For transgender people who may be physically one sex but live as the other, or pre-operative/mid-operative transsexuals. Basically anyone who can't fully identify as male or female, but more as a combination of the two.
The "Other" option on the gender section on an application is used to indicate the hermaphrodites. So, you will be required to mark on the option that you fall under.
