    Gender marker

    Like the title says, is there a possibility that we can get a gender marker in here? It's not a super big deal, but it would be kinda nice. Feels kinda awkward to be mistaken for a guy all the time.

    I guess it'd be up to other members to specify if they want it or not as well too.

    Having been on the internet for this long, I kinda take the "mistaken for a guy" part for granted. It does not bother me one bit.

    I'm okay about this either way.

    But what about the transgender people huh?! How about the asexual people who don't identify with either gender?!? HOW DID YOU FORGET THE PEOPLE WHO IDENTIFY AS TREES? We can't let xhem get offended!

    Re: Gender marker

    It would be a nice option to have. I'm typically mistaken for a girl in various forums I've been in.

    From that, hilarity ensues. *smirk*

    Anyways, I'm all for it.

    It's definitely going to help with ambiguity issues so it should be fine. And of course, members can opt to leave it blank like many of the attributes already available. I'm sure people would rejoice at not having to tip-toe arriving at one's gender without having the possibility of offending someone.

    Re: Gender marker

    It looks like there's a decent number of our female members who are bothered by this too
    Sounds good if it's optional, didn't even realize it's not in our profile
    As long as it's not misused, heh~

    Re: Gender marker

    But this will hurt me picturing you all as cute girls?

    I wouldn't want it personally, but if other people do (and as long as theres a "None of your business" option), sure why not~

    Re: Gender marker

    Like a gender marker that will appear beside our username ?
    hmm I'm kind of used to being assumed to be a guy now,
    I don't even bother to correct it anymore..

    that said, I wouldn't really mind either way;
    gender doesn't come up too often in our forum discussions,
    but I guess it could be nice to have it ?
    if it's going to take a lot of effort to put it in as an added function though,
    I don't think it'll be worth it.

    Of course we are~

    On topic: I personally don't care at all. I don't think anyone missintepretes my gender an if someone does, so what? This is not a dating platform and if someone really want's to know, why not just ask? There's nothing wrong with asking as long as you stay polite and don't get offended, if you don't get an answer. That's my take.

    Re: Gender marker

    @mintea I suppose I can do it, but I don't really want to add another detail line to the sidebar. However, what I can do is add it to the about me tab. Will that suffice?
