I see. So you think we should use a more specific system? Chromosomes perhaps?

Are you:
XX / XY / N.A / Say whut??

You should remember that lots of people don't even know that yet. We are working on changing that. Honestly, social media sites just giving the option to not choose between male & female is a good start.

I was thinking of giving people an option to you know, type out what gender they are and what pronouns to use.

Your gender options are foolish.
Just "Male" or "Female" or "-" (a.k.a., for people who do not wish to disclose).


There are 3 options, deal whit it... OR don't register a account...

Its not a bad idea, don't get me wrong.
Just now it really isn't a right time to complain about stuff most people still don't know about.

If you are neither male or female, pick the blank. If you want people to know what you are, write it on your profile page

the moderators normally don't look at these sorts of threads. If you wish to bring it up you'd probably get more of a response by posting in the 'help' or 'suggestions' forums. That way any who feel the same way can back you up.

It's called a profile page, you can write whatever crap you want on it

Thank you, since I did not know that.
