    Default Gender indication?

    What are the chances of a little symbol of male or female under each member's avatar or something? It is really hard to work out whi is male and female, and it can make a difference when responding to questions or contextually in a conversation.

    It is also hard to remember which,out of scrotty scorrcy and whatever the other one is, is male or female etc. Also when female members start saying 'suck my d&^k' etc, confusion ensues...

    It could be optional to divulge I guess if people are against giving that information.


    Thoughts?

    It seems easy enough to figure out to me.

    The angry 'activist' in me is screaming out 'No Dom, smash the gender binary - bad kiwi' but I think Ini might make fun of me, like.

    I don't think it matters what genderp people are - in fact I think it's more fun not knowing.

    I reply to people in the same way no matter what their gender and I cannot see any instances where you would need to except for maybe saying s/he which takes a few extra seconds to type.

    I was going to go all activisty on this but someone already did. Damn.

    Is it really needed to understand insults? The only thing a gender symbol would do is make this site more cruisy than it tries to be. If you are looking for some tail, just go on mixi or craigslist.

    yeah honestly I just want to know which members to send sleazy private messages to, I don't want to send any to chicks by accident.

    Cracks me up that anyone would get all up-in-arms about it - OH MY GOD! That is why I suggested it could be voluntary, as there would always some fruits that would take offense/hermaphrodite etc.

    My suggestion was more due to seeing a lot of enquiries, questions about clothing, places to go etc, and the correct answer is sometimes gender specific, have seen conversations go back and forth where incorrect assumptions are made of gender and thought it might save some hassle, make it easier for a website which to a large degree is used to find answers/suggestions etc.

    meh anyway.

    We (I say on behalf of the other staff) don't want to discourage discussion or suggestions. We love that shit.

    Although I think you should consider sending sleazy messages to everyone like I do.

    I don't think we're up in arms either. Though it's a good song.

    i don't think it matters and wouldn't make a difference to me, but if people want it, fine.

    reminds me of the controversy over that african runner in the world championships who got the gold medal and is now being investigated as she may not be considered truly female.

    Ah yes, she was so fast they ran tests on her, amirite?

    The gender tab idea is stupid because it shouldn't matter and would indeed make it seem cruisy. If you're curious, send a user a PM and ask.

    I don't care enough to do that.

    Seen quite a few conversations that go back and forth and then end up, Oh your a chick?/ dude? or incorrect suggestions given to presumption of gender so I thought it could be handy. Seems like no one agrees so once again, meh.

    Also I have no idea what you mean when you say 'cruisy' does it mean trying to pick up?

    I know new zealand is a bit backward but does everyone there live in the 1950's or is it just you?

    Cruisy means "cruising for ass" like a gay bar in Berlin with a no pants dress code or the Casual Encounters section of Craigslist.org

    If you don't care enough, certainly you don't care enough to have some kind of indicator either. That's just lazy

    Well I don't have any such ulterior motive although I did consider that as the major downside of the idea.

    I just thought it would be handy as an instant reference when replying to some questions.

    Working toward a progressive world means not taking gender into account when talking to people. The internet is a good place to practice.

    I can see what Running Roku is getting at, though, because when people ask things like, "What do I wear to work? Are earrings ok?" it makes a difference. Considering gender makes a difference to the people you will meet in Japan, the advice given will be different for some situations.

    Though in a case like that, I think it's probably better for people to volunteer the information themselves when they ask the question.

    yeah that is what I am getting at, and I have seen heaps of other examples of the same type of questions, but perhaps the downsides outweigh the convenience.

    I thought abortions were called procedures rather than operations? Or are you referring to your liposuction?
