    Question gender options

    Is it possible that there are other options than male or female on our profiles? I don't identify as either of those?

    It doesn't look like it.
    I am a woman in a mans body and I hate being in the wrong body. I want out of this body. It's like a prison cell.

    I used to be known as AdamKane in these parts.

    It's an optional field, so just don't choose one. If you want to share with us how you identify, we'd be happy to listen.

    I was mostly wondering if i was possible to change the forum settings, only having two gender options is pretty exclusionary

    If I remember correctly, it was something that wasn't easily changed I think it needs an add-on or something , and we are pretty picky about add-ons (Juni could tell you more) since they often make things buggy. Thus, it is something we are aware of, but not on the top of the list of things to change right now.

Other nights you are silent as death, a mirror in which the stars show themselves. Then I think you want to tell me something, but you never do. Of course I know I have written letters to no-one. But what if I find a trident tomorrow?" ~~Letters to Poseidon, Cees Nooteboom

    That there aren't more options has nothing to do with any disapproval of your gender preference. We're a very accepting place. I think it's just a technical issue in the sense that it's what the forum software offers by default.

    I didn't say any thing about disapproval? Being exclusionary is not the same as being disapproving

    There is a spot under your username and religion to type a few words about yourself. Just type it in there.

    Okay. I am a transgender lesbian.
