LiveJournal's making a change to the gender setting on the profile page.
* Gender will be a mandatory field at account creation.
* LiveJournal is removing the Unspecified option for the gender field. That's right: you get to be male or female. Period. That's it. (Source.)
I... I don't even have words to explain how much this hurts me. And it does hurt, because I can't see what good limiting the gender option does at all, especially if the information is staying private.
It's probably silly of me to be crying about this, but I just don't need this shit right now.
(For those who'd like suggestions on how to deal with this, this post has some ideas, which is where I found out about it.)
[Edit] Apparently the change is not going through (edit at the bottom of the page), sorry!

Fuck. Fuck, fuck, fuck, fuck, fuck. I give up on this whole goddamn internet, right now. Facebook, I knew was crap. Livejournal I had a hunch about, but it's still my natural habitat and this is like a knife in the heart. Thanks for the links.
Sorry for having to be the one to let you know about this :(
