I really don't know how I overlooked this. They should indeed be listed in the index. There are many that should be mentioned. I have now started and done Florena.... so to speak.
Transgender, "pregnant people" or "pregnant folk" instead of expectant mothers, intersex, Uterus Transplant Surgery, accessible lifts, older people, assigned male, assigned female, gender inequality, traditional ideas about the roles of women and men, born man and born woman as reductive and over-simplify a complex subject.
Substituting the words "surname" or "last name" for "family name". "Mankind" and "manpower" avoided as not good practice to use masculine nouns, instead swapped for "humanity" and "personnel". Listing prefixes for names such as "Prof", "Dr", "Mr", "Mrs" or "Miss" should not be put in a particular order to avoid a "perceived hierarchy". Not referring to people as being "spastic" or "mongol" but instead a "person with cerebral palsy" or "person with Down's syndrome". Controlling and moderating thoughts and the way we speak and others speak. Political correctness.
Mixed Race, Interracial couples, Interracial marriages, Race Mixing, Hybrid (synonym). If Interracial couples were normal then there would be no such thing as race as it would have disappeared long ago, not that we would have noticed having nothing to compare it to in the first instance.
Talk about it.
Perhaps it's a good idea to go with the flow... If scientific discovery relies on prior discovery leading to further discovery then becoming normal then leading to something else and so on and so fourth.

Thank you conversation
Thank you for refusing cheap products
Hello, nice to meet you Stevel. This is good work I have seen. Thank you very much Stevel for your efforts, they really will be valued by many, and you have identified many areas I didn't know about.
You notice I placed anchor points, added links to the contact report number and linked some of the subjects to the Meier encyclopia. Has this been ok with you?, I thought I ought to ask before assuming any further having only done A so far. To me this makes the index more appealing to be regularly used by the readers of the website because they can click and click and the experience flows better if they don't have to then bring up a new tab manually and then remember the number and find the information they were looking for. But I was going to let it settle before I linked everything. Let me know.
I will step back and allow you the space necessary to make all the various evaluations, ...for now, we speak again later.
Again great work, thank you so much I really enjoy reading.
Hello Daniel. Nice to meet you too, although I think we have replied to each other's comments on here in the past unless there are several Daniels. My name is Stephan Lane.
Thank you very much for contributing to the index. It is much appreciated and in fact a relief for me as I didn't relish the prospect of doing all of that myself. What you have done is exactly what I had envisaged, so be my guest and continue. This is the first time I have created/edited Wiki pages so it started out as a mess but is now looking good. If you find any mistakes or index entries that are inappropriate in some way, feel free to modify/delete them.
My hope for this index is to not only provide another means of finding information that can sometimes be difficult to pin down with one or two search words, but to also give folk an idea of the enormity of Billy's contacts simply by browsing through.
Good. Thank you Steve, please continue with the valuable work. I remember, now I think about it, yes there are many Daniels apparently, its good to be with you.
You're familiar with the MHRA style guide for indexing.
Its a good way of assessing the enormity of the works. And you have presented it beautifully.

Helpful information about Mediawiki
Add a signature timestamp to Talk: discussion pages - if want to.
Third button in on the toolbar
or type this and it will retrieve the info. --~~~~
To make a link to a page on the wiki.
Place two brackets [[ and ]] at each end of a word It will link to the page if it exist and turn blue, or red if not exist. Its case sensitive, so [[contact reports]] wont link, but [[Contact Reports]] will unless there is a redirect.
Link to a contact report by just the number
Change the 000 over to the number of the report [[Contact Report 000|000 text any text you want]] anything before the | is link - anything after | is link text
this will link the user to the contact report 251
Or Contact Report 256 direct link no alternative text
Overpopulation Bomb for example, to link to any page on the wiki
<br> puts everything after it onto a new line <br><br> puts everything after a spaced line onto a new line
<ref>whatever reference text you want for example see [[Contact Reports]]</ref> but at the bottom of page ==References== == === equals signs each side make headers hierarchy that link to TOC at top of page <references/> this <references/> tag will begin all references on the page and sort them all for you. ---- four of them makes a page break
Make a redirect like for example: Greater Atlantis
to make a link go to the right place create new page; with #REDIRECT [[name of the page]] its case sensitive save and reload
Take a look at all your tools
and there are many other special things.
The mediawiki uses very few templates or extensions and the site admin James must be contacted about this.
Pure HTML is enabled, but please take care with it because it quickly breaks the formatting of the site.
Anchors are important with what you have done with the index page because of the shear volume of information and locating it easily by links. You can see how I have done that if you get around to that later, by looking at the code used on the linked page.
Thanks for the valuable work. Daniel.
