Diversify the fixed Gender and Pronoun options, remove the fill in field which allows abuse and jokes.
Seeing all these users misusing the gender and pronoun fields is very upsetting and triggering. It leads to conversation that are exhausting and painful.
How about you guys actually put all the gender options down as default (even it there is many) and keep adding more upon request, rather than giving people who do not understand the importance of this section a platform to take a piss by allowing them to write whatever they want.
I understand the befits of the fill in “other” option, but honestly it’s more damaging than helpful and it just feels like it saves you the work of putting down the options yourself.
I have seen the info box below the selection menu. It’s not enough to stop this form of abuse. Those jokes are everywhere!
