An odd request

So I know this is gonna sound odd I guess? And if you say no to this, I completely understand. Is it possible to add more options to gender on here? Like more than just male, female, or other? Because I do identify as other, but I'd like to say what I identify as I guess if that makes sense? Like I said, if the answer to this suggestion is no, I will understand.

Thanks for reading and taking your time to reply if you do!

I was literally just thinking about that last night and wondering if I should make a topic! But I decided against it because I identify as female so I figured I'd let someone who needs the option changed ask for it. But that's a crazy coincidence! I totally think there should be more options, or an option to write in your own.

A custom "other" field would be the best way to implement it if you had to have the feature. But I'm not sure if that's possible via zetaboards. You'd have to ask an admin.

Personally, I just say go with N/A and leave it at that. In most cases around here gender won't even be relevant to anything being discussed.

It's understandable why someone would want the option to have their gender, and it's only fair. If it's possible it should be implemented. A bunch of info you can enter on here doesn't really come into any discussions, at least not often or in depth, so that's beside the point. It should be more inclusive, like I said, if it's possible.

A very simple implement would just be another section like "game currently playing" called something like "gender identity" and have it set to the top, then people can still use the already available drop down for simple male/female. No hassle, should be as simple as a copy and paste.

I've PMed Metallix so that he can take a look at this. Ultimately he's the only one with access to the forum functions and he can tell you whether or not this is doable in the Zetaboards layout. That being said, I support the option to choose this, just so that the people it applies to aren't forced into a binary solution.
Listen to the tales and romanticize
How we'd follow the path of the hero
Boast about the day when the rivers overrun,
How we'll rise to the height of our halo
Listen to the tales as we all rationalize
Our way into the arms of the savior
Feigning all the trials and the tribulations
None of us have actually been there

Well what other genders are there? You want me to put trans-gender(surgery induced) or hermaphrodite(genetic defect)? Like I don't know what else you could put besides that but both hermaphrodites and trans gender still associate with one or the other anyway.

well right now i'm identifying as gender questioning but leaning towards genderflux. or we could just put nonbinary as an option, which means according to google, genderqueer (GQ), also termed non-binary, is a catch-all category for gender identities that are not exclusively masculine or feminine‍‌identities which are thus outside of the gender binary and cisnormativity.

Metallix, that's why it being a text field the person can fill in on their own was suggested. It'd be impossible to list them all in a dropdown.

The only issue I could see with that is trolls using it to post inappropriate things but otherwise it's a good idea. Worse case scenario someone gets warned or banned and it is all good from there.
