Actually I find the "confused" bit quite funny

Notre temps, est arrivé
Connaissons notre force, les femmes
Découvrons-nous des milliers !

I like it. People usually think I'm female. Or think that I'm a male acting as a female. Sometimes they even think I'm male.

It could be a good idea, but then again the confusion would not end entirely. People could still mess with it, like they do with their flags or location.

Being a woman on Survivor probably did not help your cause much.

Re: Why Not Having a "SEX IDENTIFIER"?.

You can check out someone's gender in their profile (assuming they gave that info and assuming they told the truth), but putting it under your username doesn't appear to be an option with this software/version.
