Clearly - much can be omitted at the option of the member - but some things a member might want to clue others to - sex, and approximate age - there is no place for. - Without a picture and an androgenous 'handle' we are often in doubt oabout the sex of our responder - or the one we're responding to.  Sometimes we are in doubt about the age - we could be talking to a teen - or a senior citizen.
From my POV - these would be nice additions to profile

Hey now!  

All fields in your profile are optional. You can choose to fill them in or leave them blank!

yes to both of you --

Elizabeth - you could leave age blank  

Christopher - I said that

However - I responded to a "Martini" (I think I spelled that right) whose profile showed no picture - I had no clue whether it was male or female, if a profile 'sex' line were included he/she could continue to remain androgenous or let us know.

With some others I could tell the sex - (as I did with you two) but I wondered if I was replying to a very young person or one of my peers - that is all I'm suggesting

hmmm...that is a good point I think, because I have wondered as well about the age of some poets...

I think that as long as its optional, it shouldn't be a problem if people disclose it...

of course, you will have the ones that don' tell the truth, but...can't do anything about that
In short, I think this is an excellent suggestion, Wil!

In case anyone wondered, I am a hermaphrodite.

Mike - perhaps a special catagory for Hermaphrodites, transvestites and transsexuals ? -- NAW!

(Thanks ~S~ I needed that)

Sharon - personally - I'd have an aversion to any Hermaphrodite with a masculine name ~G~
