To be honest, as a genderqueer I love this.
Why is there so much hate about hiding gender?
I don't define myself as a female or male, therefore,
I dont like my profile saying either female or male.

"Other" would also be fine but hiding it is just as good.

Hello, some of the imvu users hide their age but when they invite someone to chat the age shows on the invitation inspite of it being hidden, it should not show, other wise what is the point of having the option to hide it.


It just might be something that they didn't remember to update.

I noticed while in a Public room, if you have your gender as Male and you have hidden it, it shows in the public room card that you are female, vise versa.

Is this supposed to happen?

To me this is a very dumb idea and feature. You already have people going around on here deceiving others. And now you just helping them do it. This needs to be rethought. As it is I am single and will now definitely remain that way on here. Thank you imvu for just messing the site up even further.

But IMVU isn't a dating website, so why did you feel the need to mention the fact that you will never date on here? I mean, you can still date on here if you wanted to. You will just have to make sure that the person you are talking to is who they say they are... which is what you should do regardless of hidden gender.

Why offer a marriage package if it isn't an option. It must be an option for that to be in place. Hence my comment and learn to look at everything before you just feel like making a comment on my post. And I've been on here a long time and people play the deception game trying to catch others out there. So if you must know I feel it should be a requirement not an option

I totally agree...but each to their own.....I will boot anyone from my clubs who has their age/gender hidden. Same as i wont accept invites or friend requests from anyone who has their age/gender hidden. once again, IMVU pandering to the minority.

I had a conversation with a person yesterday, she felt the need to tell me "oh im not bisexual btw, i just have the to attract more attention"

There is ALOT of that on IMVU, hence why this is such a stupid idea.

I never said that you couldn’t date on here. In fact, if you had read my post then you would have seen “I mean, you can still date on here if you wanted to. You will just have to make sure that the person you are talking to is who they say they are... which is what you should do regardless of hidden gender.” So I advise you to take your own advice “…learn to look at everything…”The marriage package is no reason to automatically assume that IMVU is trying to be a dating website, though? Maybe others see it that way, but I just see it as 30$ for the union of Avatar A’s and Avatar B’s profile cards. Anyways, I honestly do not see why you are so afraid of being deceived that it hinders you from dating. You can still date if you just get to know the person you are talking to. I never automatically assume that someone’s gender on their profile is the gender they truly are, so to me this whole “hiding your gender” thing does not affect my IMVU experience. I have even had people tell me they are one gender, then later confess to being another. I just accepted it and continued on being their friend because I’m just here to chat.

Ahaha. Because I wanted it and could afford it? Same reason I have anything on this site, really. If I want it, then I’m going to buy it.
I'm not dating "Pawn," and it was ignorant of you to automatically assume that due to the fact I'm married to her on a virtual site. In fact, I am single if you must know. Next you'll say that I have A.P. because I want to see nood pixels when a) I don't even wear anything A.P. or hang out in AP rooms and b) I only got A.P. because I could afford it and I was 18 at the time. (:

So I shall repeat myself.
IMVU is not a dating website. If it was, then I wouldn't have joined it in the first place because I’m not interested in pursuing a relationship at the moment. It is a social chat site. See, we are being social right now. But, can you date on here? Yes. Some people end up having really good relationships on IMVU that branch out to becoming much more than that. That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t exert some level of cautiousness, regardless of gender being shown or not, because you never know who you could be talking to. It is common internet safety.
Also, please note that this is just how I personally feel and my post is not intended to insult or offend anyone.

Well....when your lifestyle choices effects my abilities to pay my bills and function properly, then i might care, as of right now, i dont. I couldnt care less what you do on IMVU or in your rl....What i do care about is imvu making stupid decisions like this then when alot of the USEFUL functions on the client do not work properly......I pay VIP to have access to a working client, not to see whether someone has hidden their gender or not.

I'm speechless, amazing what you learn about people in forums....
I like the hidden gender feature, and still hope that they expand it to include other options.

I have to agree. I did not realize people could be so hateful/ignorant until I saw this thread.
