I don't know, some of you are just a mystery to me.

Yeah, I was wondering this myself. I am always wondering who I'm talking to.

Patiently waiting for ANA, MISA and DANI to start playing tennis again.

'course if your cravings are of a more carnal nature ....

Should be another option in Profile to select your gender and make it displayable to all, I mean we have Age, Country etc..

I think there have been threads like this already, but I know other boards just have a symbol next to the name. I know that the whole concept of gender is problematical to people: how about we just ask...which potty do you use..haha

You are not alone in your confusion. I've been a member of web sites that included these ♀♂ symbols, and they were a big help. I get so tired of writing "he/she" in my posts as well. However, the problem still exists with some posters where even they aren't so sure of what they are.

It would be helpful, although people could still fill it in wrong, like with the flags.
