Why are the default avatars on this site male?

2021-09-27, 0:49 AM

I noticed that my default avatar has a tie, which seems to imply it is male.  Why is this?


Also, when I tried to ask this question in the Welcome & FAQ's forum, I got a "Group Denied" message - why is that?

The "Welcome" posts are announcements. 

No need to be concerned about the avatar. It's just a generic symbol.

Thanks for sharing your thoughts. Although a neck tie can and has been, in reality, worn by all genders your suggestion has some merit because the majority of those that do are male so, as you will see, we have changed the image to one which is more "neutral".

If you wish to you are able to change your avatar to one of your choice by clicking on your name towards the top of the page, select My Settings and then Avatars.
