I would totally set my gender to female too bad my name isn't girlish D: nah just kidding well the only problem is people will only mess it up

Well...it sure can avoid embarrassing situations like "are you a female, right?" (watching the user image). On the other hand I think it is nice to ask this kind of question to fortify the friendship. Obviously, you can't blindly believe someone you just met, but people which you speak with often.

So now no one can hide their penises from the Internet.

I'm pretty sure people could still lie about it anyways.

^ the reason why this shouldn't and won't happen.

I see no harm in such a feature. If people want to lie, I guess that's on them, but I can only imagine a small amount of people doing this...

Should give an option to hide the gender from public though.

I've been in so many awkward situations regarding gender on #osu that I feel this is completely necessary. Here, have 8 stars.
it's like people don't know what rule 30 is

You would just not put a gender.

once its implemented, there's going to be a lot of girls playing osu! somehow.

That's an option i was looking for too when joining the osu!community a month ago.

I'd like to have the choice to display it or not.

Wow, old thread.

I don't think this should be implemented even if it's optional. If a lot of people used it, it would create an environment in which genderclaiming is expected and I don't think that's something we should move towards in a game that's largely male and that encourages talking with other players. And there would probably be more guys listing their gender as female than girls listing their gender as female - you'd have a better shot at choosing correctly by assuming male than by trusting the player's listed gender.

Well, lying on gender either male/female, has nothing to do with the fact we could choose to display our gender.

You can talk with anybody logged on the game or forum and they can lie to you...

By the way, you have no idea about how many girls play this game and you should be surprised...

I don't say we should be forced to display our gender, just i'd like to have the choice to display it or not. Same as i have the choice to display my age.

Did i receive any message because i'm 26 ? no. Am i lying ? No but still i could be. Lot of people use it. Did we create an environment where age is the matter of everything? I don't think so. Actually im just glad to be able to see some teenagers like 16y old on the top of best players in the world. It would be the same for male/female display...

pls no

generally don't think it's important, just write it in your userpage if you want people to know...

This better be added or im gonna make some shit memes.

Tbh I don't find it that important. But I'm a girl and I've been mistaken for a guy before and it was kinda weird and awkward. Btw there are quite a lot of girls who play osu.

As someone said earlier u can just put it on your userpage but not everyone has one and in game it wouldn't be shown. I think it should be shown somewhere in game so it's easier to see
