    Simple, clean, perfect. Just what I was looking for (and also the remove date of birth tool) since my site is privacy oriented and it's no one's business who our visitors are. :)
    I'm sending a donation to provide additional encouragement for the future! Thanks!! /Steve Gibson.

    This addon is absolutely essential to communities that recognize non-binary genders. I have been using this addon ever sine I switched over to Xenforo and am greatful for its existence. Thank you for the prompt update to 1.4!

    Remove Gender now removes as many instances of the default option as I can find in code (literally). Thank you, AndyB!

    As an administrator of a community that recognizes that there are genders outside the regular gender binary, I appreciate this modification. I will be using it and using a custom field as a gender.
