Is there anyway we can get genders on our profiles? I hate it when people assume I'm a guy. Now that you're doing away with feedback it's not as big of a deal but it would be nice anyways. Just a thought! Thanks.

Girls on the internet? Impossible.



j/k...
It wouldn't help to have that info on your profile page, cause people don't ususally look at that page.
What would work the best is if you wore a pic of a girl (maybe you) as your avatar. Then people can figure it out more easily.

I find it funny ... particularly since my job description is "mom". I can instantly tell who has and hasn't read my profile.

If this were in use, I have a feeling that there will be a lot of gender confused men on this site that may be marking themselves as "female" just for the fun of it.

I agree with H2SY.
  • For whatever reason people will inaccurately represent their gender.
  • And of course there'll also be the need for a "not specifed" option.
  • People who don't read profiles and don't pick up big clues like "Mom" won't be reading the gender attribute anyway.
Overall I do think that the net result, of implementing this suggestion, would be that we'd be no more sure of a person's actual gender than we are now and the tendency to presume maleness would continue.

Guys,

While you are demonstrating your pre-pubescent fear of girl cooties with lame-flames, it's not acceptable.

Get this thread back on track, and quick.

And you may want to fix the flames pretty fast or there'll be some wrist slapping coming.

heh. It's nice to see the addition of medals has another added benifit. Your 1 gold medal gives an onlooker a basic idea of how little effort you put into achieving your rank.
