I just added two fields to everyone's Account Details. One is named Gender Identity, where you can indicate your gender identity. The second is Gender Pronouns, where you can indicate which pronouns people should use when addressing you. This information is now displayed under your avatar so that nobody has to guess how you identify or how to address you.

New users will fill in this information during registration. For existing users, you will need to go into your account details menu, scroll down until the two fields are visible, make your selections, and hit Save.

I tried to be as inclusive as possible without making the menus a mess. If any member has a gender identity or pronouns not found in the options, let me know and I can add new ones.

I just checked mobile version and it is not displaying, just on desktop. I'll look for a solution. But for now at least, desktop users can see your gender identity and pronouns.

You can put them in your title for the time being if you wish.
Access that the same way

Does look awkward on mobile. Should be a a way to keep the user name horizontal

I agree. I will look for a solution when I have more free time. In the meantime, I can either leave it as it is, or just turn the information off on the mobile platform so it doesn’t look so cluttered.

Either way. If it will be a bit before you're able to look at it maybe turn it off. I'm good with it but new people might not be impressed

It worked on my iPod

I put it in my signature instead.
Signatures don't show on the mobile site. You can customize your title and put them in there which does show on mobile.

Thank you. I will think about it. I mostly use TapaTalk. I can make a signature there.

Making a signature in TapaTalk seems to work.

Aaaaannnd it did not show...
Are you on mobile platform or using a third party app like Tapatalk? If so, it won't show up. I disabled it on mobile because it made everything look cluttered. And I don't think it will show up on Tapatalk.

@Maverick Using a signature works fine, but I hope to find a solution to the mobile cluttering problem soon.
