I understand that Alex might never get around to this.

"Gender" is currently a mandatory field. I don't want it on my profile at all, but I can't unselect what I selected when I registered. So I'm suggesting that it be made not mandatory.

Maybe there should be a "Sex" profile field for people who want to identify their sex.

When I created my account I skipped the "gender" field and it doesn't show up under my profile pic, so it's not really mandatory, although I think it says it is when creating an account which would be misleading.

I rather have my gender revealed, so that people can know which answers to offer when replying to my posts (even a feminine username doesn't necessarily specify one's gender, although my username isn't feminine). When replying to people's posts, the responses you give can make a difference if you know the gender of the person. This also includes age and nationality too. It saves you from having to keep revealing your info in your posts or other posters having to keep asking.

Gender roles and stereotyping...hate it

But physically I am female and the world will treat me as such...


I think a lot of use are getting fed up of assumptions being made about us based on the genitals we inherited.

Go womens rights?...:D :P :D :P

The rest of the time I'm more of a bloke...

Except when it comes to football.

I prefer equestrian, but then me dad was a joky and horses run in the family.

Long time away from though, they are bloody expensive in the world we have today.

Yes, I think an “agender” option would be good along with other nonbinary identities. That being said, aside from transphobes I don’t really think anyone would want to identify their sex but not their gender. If you’re cisgender then you could give your sex as your gender.

No, that's not what I'm asking for. I mean no text, completely empty gender field.

I'm for gender randomization, everyone will have different gender every day!

One day I can be girly girl leeching money out of horny incels, on other day I can be manly man grabbing by the p***, and on yet another day I can be agender doing... umm... well, what is gender role for someone agender? :3
