Additional gender options.
Provide additional gender options for selection. Use gender instead of "sex".

I work with a lot of Transgender athletes. I need this feature too! For all the rude people who have commented on this previously.... It IS important to know if someone is trans. Their hormone balance will be slightly different. I need to know that in order to help them properly with their nutrition. And for someone who is non-binary, that is still valid because they may be going for a different body look. It starts a conversation that I can have with them about what their goals are and properly determine how to adjust their nutrition properly.

Just have a box that says ‘other’ where they can type what they feel they are. Sex - male/ female is actually useful for starting points for trainers who create diet plans. If you haven’t noticed, men and women are biologically different.. so I’d prefer to know who I’m working with.
Lmao you literally need to know their actual scientific gender in order to determine RMR and MMR. It’s not about what you “think” you are.
Gabriel DeVine commented
It's relevant when it comes to determining RMR-- Leave it, and leave it as "sex," not "gender," since they're two different things.

I sexually Identify as an Attack Helicopter. Ever since I was a boy I dreamed of soaring over the oilfields dropping hot sticky loads on disgusting foreigners. People say to me that a person being a helicopter is Impossible and I’m fucking retarded but I don’t care, I’m beautiful. I’m having a plastic surgeon install rotary blades, 30 mm cannons and AMG-114 Hellfire missiles on my body. From now on I want you guys to call me “Apache” and respect my right to kill from above and kill needlessly. If you can’t accept me you’re a heliphobe and need to check your vehicle privilege. Thank you for being so understanding.
The unfortunate thing is gender does play a roll when you are calculating caloric needs so as a trainer I would like to know this information to help with nutrition info,

Just remove the option.
Gender identity is both complicated and simple.
Instead of male/female, how about...
Gender Identity: male/female/fluid/neutral?
Pretty much covers the bases.
Tamara Vancougar McKinnon commented
It's unnecessary!!! Please remove! Thank you!
Just remove the option. Lots of us don't want it.
Do this quickly and as well as doing something great and right for the world you could also get some good media coverage. If the Canadian Passport office can do it, you can too

OTHER, with an open space for customizing gender specification,
Masuline of Center
Feminine of Center
I'm assuming you know/ can find out what FTM and MTF mean.I find the Other, custom option important if your format will support it as it allows people to tell you who they really are, even if the other options do not. There are so many ways to identify, I really feel you risk alienating people without that option.
I can see for a trainer how information about someone's given body type may be applicable but you will not know that from all of these options. I still think giving people a place to voice who they really are with someone they are going to work closely with on issues around their body, which can be upsetting to some trans* and gender diverse people, is important. If it matters, I would choose the Other category.
Thanks for asking.
If you manage to action this quickly, it could lead to some great media coverage for your app (as well as just being a great thing to do!)

Gender has no use within the app, please remove it.
Candace Loomis commented
This question has nothing to do with the function of the app, please remove it.
Frank Incensed commented
Make the gender responses more inclusive, or remove the field in the app please.
K Grey commented
This question not only isn't necessary but it is exclusionary.
I'm non-binary, and as it stands I can't use this app. Either make the gender field inclusive, or remove it entirely if it serves no actual purpose.
Please remove this irrelevant question. Thank you!
