Question Female/Male on Registration/Profile page?

I find it difficult to know whos male/female with some names . I've asked a few others and they feel the same. Is it Possible to ask if you male or female on the registration page or on profile page. If not could we use the word (optional)? I do not want to embarrass anyone. Or myself!!

Since I'm one of the new kids on the block, that's a big problem for me. I visit another board where a gender icon is placed next to the number of posts. Don't know if that's possible here or not, but it's an idea.


ETA: it worked for me

i'm not sure if it's really necessary. i mean, in theory, shouldn't we all treat each other as we would wish to be treated, as equals? i don't think it should matter if you're a guy or a gal. same goes for age, or race, or religion, or even if you're from wisconsin or in the canadian military. (sorry elfie, couldn't resist)

i remember thinking sierra cook was a guy at first, because of her job, just a very sweet guy . with my manhood re-affirmed, i try to respond honestly and openly to all posts, as equals, and as friends...

I think it just makes life easier. Like looking at a baby and not knowing whether it's a girl or a boy. Removes that 'idiot' factor.

lol, yeah, i guess i understand. i am terrible at guessing at a baby's gender, (curse brown, green, and yellow baby clothes)and i guess in terms of communication, referring to the baby as "it" seems impolite.

Mine is pretty obvious, but I use dc on some boards, I always have my name in my sig.
