Default Poly option in mainstream survey!

I often participate in the surveys (i.e. "research") that get posted here but also participate in several "get paid to take surveys" sites. For the first time EVER poly was listed as an option. I have been noticing more surveys asking about sexual/gender identity or giving "other" or "prefer not to say" as options. But poly? Nope, this was a first.

I use MTurk and Prolific too, and a few other ones sometimes too (kind of slow right now). It's hilarious how some of them have just "man, woman, other", or "Democrat, Republican, Independent", and others have a whole spectrum of choices.

What was the survey about where poly was listed in the demos?
