I searched a bit and found that in order to remove the Gender Selection options altogether from registration page; template edits are mandatory.

I wonder why there's no option in the admincp to remove the gender option from registration form? o_O

Probably because the default avatars have gender symbols. Even still, gender isn't required even though it is present.

Well, on our forums we don't want to ask whether they are males, females or aliens or plants. Come on, I don't want to edit templates to remove that option!

This is crazy. Why put another hurdle in the registration form. Let's make it as simple as possible to sign up. Especially with identity theft so rampant, etc. many people DO NOT want to list their birthday, gender etc. just so they can post in a forum! Xenforo give us that removal option in the admin panel please. Don't make us dig around and edit templates. Makes no sense! It's a minor thing to squeeze in before 1.1 rolls out and adds more value to the software.

Please make gender optional on the registration form. I certainly don't want it.
There are usually more people saying they are women than there are women anyway.

If it was a required field, I could see a problem. Since it's not required, what's the problem?

Because it is irrelevant.
If there was a question ... Do you go to church ? [ ] Y [ ] N

Because it is irrelevant.

Why would I waste time collecting something I don't want to know, will never use ?

To have a gender question as *mandatory* to display is certainly not a business-oriented forum.
If you run a Call of Duty site it's probably fine.
