Thanks for making this thread, Cwhatever.
As stated above, I too have seen this option on other sites and have never seen it being a problem. If someone is worried about sexual harassment then they have the OPTION not to give out the information. Simple. I think it would be a good option to add for those of us who don't mind sharing what gender we are.
I can't count the times I've seen where a female has had to make it known that she was a SHE, not a HE. I have a feeling that there are quite a few of the ladies in here that would love to see the option added.
As for people who want to act childish and don't know how to treat a woman, do we really need them or want them on this site anyways?? I'm a MOD on another site and I have absolutely no tolerance for such actions. Any sexual attack on another member = a ban. Period.
