100% of Sock Munkee's channel viewers are male.

I know it's a joke... but they're still human. Maybe they are intersex, and maybe they, for some other reason, don't want to say either male or female (perhaps because it's not really clear whether this survey is about gender or assigned sex or something else). And there is also the possibility that some people are being facetious, we really can't know that, although I do hope that everyone answered honestly.
So I'm just going to go ahead and bet that none of those 3 people where serious. Balance of probability.

I don't understand why there's an "other" if this is supposed to be a serious poll.

People will pick the gender they identify with. If it's a transgender person they'd pick whichever gender they believe themselves to be despite what their body formed as. So why have the "other" option unless to be jokey. You know people are going to jokingly use it. Even if someone has both male and female parts I'd assume they'd have a preferred gender they identify with.

I can't speak for transgendered people though as I might be wrong, but I'm just saying.

So we must assume that the "other" people are just having a laugh. Which defeats the purpose of the poll.

Correct me if I'm completely wrong.

Not everyone identifies with male or female, so I guess the option is there to try and cover all bases.

I think it is a problem that we don't have more females in this community, females look at things in a different perspective which could lead to new ideas and other types of games.

Point was that being a different gender does not equal bringing different ideas.
