I've had that happen to me, too!

Maybe a little pink smiley face or a blue smiley face under the username would be one way to solve that.

(Kind of old fashioned, with the colors, but a fairly simple solution.)
that would be a really great idea

You can do it yourself. Go to userCP and Edit Options and there is a little box that says Gender.

I suggest that if you want to address someone as "he" or "she" that you take a guess, write "he/she" or "they" or something like that. I bet that most people wouldn't be offended is you guessed a gender writing that and got it wrong. They'd either not care or let you know the correct one.

Good topic for discussion!
You have a very good point! There are several Goverment enforced regualtions, such as COPPA (Child On Line Privacy Act) I have my own websites and I have to follow those regulations also. COPPA is a great safety feature
