Gender?

In the profiles area it askes many questions eg. birthdate etc but not gender, I realize some people (especially females) may be reluctant to divulge this, but sometimes knowing someone's gender can help you better understand where they're coming from. Just a thought....

LOL!! I was thinking about that too! Sometimes I want to say something to another member but I don't know if I should use he or she. That usually get me in troble because most of the user names aren't helpful enough in situations like this. So I think adding gender would be a good idea. Maybe if someone don't want to show their gender may choose 'unspecified' or something like that??

LMAO ...

"Unspecified" gender ...

I know what you mean though about someone not wanting to specify a gender (ie for safety reasons)

Please put a space for gender on the profiles. It would've saved me a lot of trouble a few weeks ago.....

In all seriousness, I agree. I don't know whether a lot of posters are male or female, so I never know how to refer to them without typing their username over and over again.

I am the same! I do think that if a person doesnt want to answer they shouldnt have to but for the rest of us it would be nice to know what the genders of the people around are.

I tink if ppl want to divulge what gender they are they will I think having too much info on your profile is a bad ting imo- some ppl do like to have some privacy

I think this gender thing is a good idea. People should have the option to choose male, female, or leave the option blank. I think it would be helpful- sometimes I wish I would've picked a name that showed my gender. I'd like people to know that I'm female!
