What happened to the old "X is a [male/female] in [place]"?
Without ranks anymore (Lord/Lady, Duke/Dutchess, Prince/Princess, King/Queen), it can be difficult to determine the gender of a user and assumptions are made, especially by/of new users. Can there be an icon option somewhere so we don't need to guess?

Blah blah blah gender binary blah blah blah.

Why don't we just have 'male', 'female' and 'NOT A PART OF YOUR SYSTEM' - capslock not necessary but heavily recommended.

Alternatively we could go for something like integrating gender into the profile system better like 'Avorne has been a member since [date] and [he/she/they] were/was last seen browsing [whatever]' - that way just by reading the little profile blurb on the side you can work out whether a person identifies as male, female or you should ask them personally which gender pronouns they'd like.

Change it back to where you can choose your gender! So if people on armorgames are hitting on you, they can at least know if you're a boy or a girl!

Gender identity on the internet is rather pointless. We're all just people on here. What we are physically would only matter if it was a dating site. However, personally, I don't care if there are options to mark it or not, as long as they are not required fields.

Taking away the possibility of Gender identity also dehumanizes a user. The gender gives it a more personable level, allowing us to converse with one another as if we are human beings talking to human beings, and know we are doing so. It also eliminates any awkward problems that could arise from not having Gender Identity (such as Kasic being called a girl..or me being called a boy)

or me being called a boy

I knew you were a girl!
I say have it similar to the way it was. It wasnt a requirement, but it was their for those who wanted it. It makes everyone happy. Except sushi cats

Genders are now shown on user profiles. Or are you talking about something else?

Also, I think someone is forgetting rule 37. There are no girls on the internet. They're only people from real life visiting... or spies.

As long, as such a comment is written, it is better, there is no gender in the profil

You have an option to have one or not on your profile. You can turn it off you wish.

I'm offended that there are "no girls on the internet." I'm a girl, on the internet!
