Not sure if this belongs here. But can i just suggest something real quick?
It would probably be better to have it so that when you sign up, the gender options are just Male, Female, and Non Binary. or maybe have it say Other and allow you to put whatever you identify as on it. I find it kind of dumb to have "Spider Man" and "Guy with Moobs" be options.

Dear bro,

I agree. Tbh, I'm kind of surprised to hear they're still asking for your gender on sign-up. When I go into my settings, I can't find anywhere to enter my gender.

haha, you're right. That list is 10+ years old, only viewable at sign-up and totally ridiculous.
Use the Search feature first to find answers to your questions. Chances are that they have been asked before!

Alternatively, you could provide an "Other" option for individuals to specify their gender identity. "Spider Man" and "Guy with Moobs" as choices seem unnecessary and trivialize the important concept of gender identity.

agreed with the spammer. I'm removing the gender/sex from registration. We have no interests in collecting that kind of information.
(now too bad I have to banhammer that account and it's now looking like I'm replying to nobody...)

Absolutely, your suggestion for more inclusive gender options is important. Simplifying to Male, Female, and Non Binary or providing an "Other" option would better respect diverse gender identities, making the sign-up process more inclusive and respectful.
