Should we add an "Other" gender option?

I was recently editing my DayZRP profile when I realized there were only male, female, and blank spaces available for selection. It would be cool if there was an option for our non-binary and gender-queer members. Its not the most important thing in the world, though it wouldn't hurt to be inclusive with everyone.

I was referring to the profile pages of members, not characters. Im pretty sure with characters you can just write in your gender/sexuality. @NozzyRP

 

the gender isn't visable anyway? so your question is irrelevent, my statement still stands anyway. There are only 2 genders

If your character has penis = Male

if your character has vagina = Female 

simple af? 

Gender is more complicated than that... 

There's a whole study behind this shit (not even bet it's worth)...

On topic tho, this is just one of the things nobody needs here. If you identify yourself as whatever alien you are, you can always use the "About me" page.

Fair point, DayZRP is as the name implies, an RP server, and I can respect that opinion. And regarding @NozzyRP's argument that no one can see the selected gender, maybe it should just be removed entirely, then. Might clean up the edit profile tab a bit extra too, by removing any redundant/not useful stuff. Still though, adding the option wouldn't hurt anyone.

Why? one can only be female or male.

This is a non-issue for me. While it might be easy for me to say, I assume this:

 

Even if I was into a "non classic gender" or would identify as such, I would simply use any free-text field to denote or note it, if necessary (like "About me"), and the benefit is that those others could see, if I want it to be public. If I want this to be shown on my profile somewhere, I can. So while I don't want to ruin anyone's debate or suggestion thread, I feel it is ultimately wasted time in this particular case because it's a small cosmetic or "good feel" change at best when I am not hindered at all if I want to note a particular 'gender identification' in my profile, because that's possible right now.

There is only male and female because there is only male and female genders

I demand both an 'Apache helicopter' option as well as a 'Main battle tank' option.

 

In all seriousness though, no. If you can't pick between the two options, don't pick either of them and leave it.

Just to clarify, it is there are two biological sexes (male or female) not genders. Gender is how you identify in relation to your biological sex. So if you identify as cisgender then you are identying as your biological sex in other words if your are male and identify as male then you are cisgender. If you are male but identify as female then you are transgender etc. There are a few other genders etc. that you can identify as. But who cares, identify how you want to doesn't really effect anyone else, apache helicopter seems popular.

In regards to the OP if you'd like more options then it would be another tab in regards to gender sperate to bioligical sex but I don't think it's needed. You can always write it to your bio If you really wanted to. 

Anyway these types of thread normally turn into a clusterfuck, might be worth a /close.

Oh sweet baby Jesus... I've been in trouble on these types of threads.

I'm just going to say no and leave it at that boys. Lord knows this is a topic I've argued against on several occasions and we all know what happened to me.

I'm just gonna say no.
