Can I get rid of this "bee in my bonnet"?

I've just checked "My Profile". There is a section in there marked "Gender".  Angry
Gender is a grammatical term! Some foreign nouns have "gender": masculine, feminine, or (good grief, in German) neuter. Living objects have "sex" (Smiley): male or, female (or, for the undecided I suppose, hermaphrodite).
Thanks. I feel better now.  Cheesy

It's used correctly in the profile.
Gender is the individual's perception of his/her sexuality.

You may have checked your profile, but it seems you are undecided about your gender !  Cheesy Roll eyes
I notice that you have not put anything  there ! !  Cheesy Roll eyes

I'm certain of my sex, but I'll leave the gender section blank, if that's OK...  Crazy
