My idea is ...

Support unspecified, "other", or "decline to state" gender

OpenID and Connect currently supports only "male" and "female" for gender options.

Many existing systems support other options for gender such as "other" or "decline to state", representing:

- Users whose gender expression is neither male nor female (androgynous or genderqueer);
- Users whose biological sex is neither male nor female (intersex conditions)
- Users who decline to state their gender for privacy reasons (notably, women seeking to avoid unwanted sexual propositions or harassment);
- Services where gender is simply not relevant to the application.
