Didn't read the entire thread, so sorry if I repeat anyone, but I don't even understand why there's a transgender option?

Like, legit it was slightly offending when I saw it. xD;

Transgender people fight so hard to be recognized as either male or female, so why would you go with "transgender", that's contradictory. Agender is much the same, there's a blank gender option for that.
Well, there was that troll

and we failed

so hard

This is how I thought some transgendered people would feel about something like this.

I kind of can't believe this thread is still open since it was only about fixing the post bit and it turned into debating how we should recognize transgendered and genderqueer people on PC. Either leave the new options or change it back to how it was imo. I don't understand why there's so much hubba about this.

The postcount stuff was turned off for guests and newly registered users ages ago.
So that was a conscious decision? How disappointing.

It was a template edit with an if condition based on what you select to be shown in your User CP. Because of that, and the fact that guests don't have an account to select what's shown in their postbit, it is hidden.

Yet none of the other postbit elements with options are hidden for guests. Am I missing something?

Hm. I'm willing to bet it's just an oversight in the templates. Whoever edited it so that guests can see everything more than likely forgot to do the same for post count. I don't think it was a conscious decision.

I'm using Let's Fly Together and I can't even see my own choice. I picked Genderqueer, and nothing shows up in the gender field.

I can see it just fine on the same theme.

Are you sure it isn't disabled in your Options page?
