Sub-categories[edit]

Would it be worth adding sub-categories (e.g. Category:Non-binary people)? Splainer (talk) 07:23, 2 April 2021 (UTC)

Do we currently have any articles on non-binary people? Are we likely to have any soon? Spud (talk) 08:06, 2 April 2021 (UTC)
There's at least one. Possibly more because I haven't checked. Other possible sub-categories would have more entries. Splainer (talk) 08:38, 2 April 2021 (UTC)
Since we recently had some drama here involving a lesbian who was accused, in very strong terms, of being intolerant of asexuals, I don't think this is the right time to symbolically divide the people in this category. Spud (talk) 09:10, 2 April 2021 (UTC)
Plus we need more than one or two people per category. Pizza SLICE.gifChef Moosolini’s Ristorante ItalianoMake a Reservation 09:19, 2 April 2021 (UTC)
I'm not set on the addition of a non-binary category. That was just an example. (There are other enbies who arguably fall within RW's focus -- Zoe Quinn and Jim Sterling come to mind). The aim of this proposal certainly wasn't to divide people. It was to create more specific sub-categories to make it easier for readers to find biography articles that might interest them. An "LGBTQ people" category works as a simple catch-all. But it doesn't really help if someone wants to read specifically about, say, notable trans people. With clear guidelines for inclusion I think such sub-categories would be workable. Splainer (talk) 09:52, 2 April 2021 (UTC)
