Added gender fields

Post by Valerion »

Due to user request, we have expanded the gender options available in the profile section. Feel free to change yours.

And no, we are not going to implement the whole list of 53 from Facebook. Even if you ask nicely. ;)

Why are there two herms? Because two herms are better than one?
Ba dum tsss! :P

Seriously though, I think that might be an error.

I identify as a demisexual panromantic trigender feminist extraterrestrial martian. May I have some representation, please? Oh, xe/xim/xis pronouns, please.

;)

(Yes, I am being humorous.)

Cool, but what about agender? :P

Also while you're at it, could I please request that a few options be added to the sexual orientation (seriously, that "pre-fur-ence" pun is horrifying) field? Namely asexual and demisexual?

Facebook has 53 separate genders listed? That is absolutely horrifying.

It seems that many of these are duplicates, but even so:

Some articles say 51, some say 53, some say 58 and one says 71. I am not in a mood to count.

It's irrelevant, because many of them seem to be ever so slight variations on each other.

I removed the duplicate herm, which may cause some profiles to be wrong now. If you changed your gender since this thread went up, please check to see if you're affected.

Stay on topic.
