Perhaps you might think this a silly question, but why is there an option to display your gender under your avatar along with location etc.?

 

Obviously, and quite rightly, users can opt out of disclosing it, but it does seems like totally irrelevent information. We wouldn't put information about race or sexual orientation up there, so why gender?

 

Just wondering ...

Duck Blind Miniatures - The website has been gone for a long time so I've put up a FaceBook page to show what photos I have left or may add in the future.
Duck Blind Minis IG - I do post on IG too but fair warning there are other things (mostly the gym) on here besides minis.
