About Gender in Profiles

Post by Guest on Fri Mar 15, 2013 9:34 pm

I know that normally, gender is supposed to be labeled as Male or Female, or if the pokémon in question is one that doesn't have a gender by default, then Genderless. But what if a certain pokémon is biologically one of the two sexes, but chooses to identify as the male or female gender? Because it does say 'gender', and not 'sex' in the profiles.

I don't know, I was thinking of making a pokésona, but I don't exactly choose to identify as either gender, and would be a little bit uncomfortable having to be one of the two. So the big question is basically is whether certain genderqueer terms are allowed in the gender section. ovo [i.e. Identifications like agender, genderfluid, bigender, etc]

If not, that's okay. I'm not really hellbent on having to be totally gender neutral. lol

I would suggest, then, to treat it like we Legends do; state the sex, then put a note stating what they refer themselves as.
