Post Reply Transgender options for profile

It would be great to have such an option for our profiles. I can understand difficulties in adding such an option such as space restrictions under the avatar and I'm not even sure if there is a symbol for it. Just a thought.

I think that's a good idea! No clue how easy/difficult it would be for them...

I know as a slight workaround right now some people combine a custom gender choice with their location and set the "no" gender option to make their posts show up with what looks like a gender description. That is: I could set my gender to -, then set my location to X / OK, USA, and it would look like X is my gender instead of M in the forum because it gets combined in the same way as if I'd set each item separately.

Gotcha, thank you for the workaround there. Didn't think about that. That might actually work just fine because people are going to have a lot of their own definitions to their view of what transgender is.

Maybe make the gender section custom?

If they made it custom they'd probably have to include a pretty low character limit, or else it would probably be abused.

True, it would have to be limited to two, three at the most.
