Limited Gender declaration options
« on: October 29, 2018, 12:02:00 PM »
Why is there only the classic binary option male/female, and blank, in the profile?

How about all the other options as requested by the LGBTQ+  community?

How are these MTO members supposed to express their given Gender?

Which options? I am a little naive and ignorant.

Hooked, like everyone else. ;)

All hail the hook!

What about us non non-binary trans-transgender members with binary opposed attractions? :think:

see, it is a big issue that affects many members and it should not be swept under the carpet.

Things were simpler in the old days. It didn't say "Gender", it said "Sex", and you could answer "yes please". These days you have to write a much longer "Isn't it smurfing obvious, you moron?" and then waste several minutes vociferously expressing to underpaid staff, just loud enough for management to hear, how offended you are that someone felt the need to question your identity, then casually glance around for anyone who appears to be resenting my binary identity, so I know who I need to sit next to and moan about it to for the next half hour.  :whistle:

Jesting aside, it does annoy me that the question (in many real life scenarios) should be needed at all. In an equal society (which we're supposedly striving for), the answer is irrelevant, so why ask.

I don't really get why a multi-tool forum has a gender declaration option at all.  :dunno:

For statistics – and to stop drunken members from flirting with a “Gender” they are not interested in (when sober).

Normal is not defined by gender only but by many other special factors  :)

preconfigured with the forum software.

as pointed out, you are not required to specify anything.

While I would have no problem adding options, I can't see it bringing any actual benefit and may actually cause unneeded friction from some less accepting members.

This is a multitool forum, not tinder.

This is not a serious thread, by the way, before people get too wound-up

I only know about this.........issue.......thanks to youtube videos....thankfully.  :facepalm:

Although I firmly believe everybody is free to get their jollies in whatever consensual way they choose, I'm just too old for the drama surrounding this...issue  :facepalm:


In some video somebody mentioned his wife is an MD, and no matter what you identify as, the doc needs to know what plumbing you have to make a correct diagnosis......

Seems kinda obvious....

My tools like being used. I might get picky about who fondles my tools, but they don't. So... gender. Meh. It's the internet. We probably aren't even here. We're probably some figment of Grant's id running amok while he sleeps.

And Deeks, I still suspect you're a space hampster sent to spy on humanity. I thought space hamsters reproduced by fission.  :D

Ah, but you see, they do it in negative time direction. So that they start out as the heat death of the universe and proceed to fuse till there is but one space hamster who is the big bang...  :D
