One-Answer WCA Competition and Regulations Question Thread

Do you have to register your legal gender on your wca account thingy? I’m trans and i cant change my legal gender yet but i’d hate to be required to have female on my public wca account, that would really not be good for my mental health
Relevant regs:
  • 2c) Competitors register by providing all information required by the organization team (including: name, country, date of birth, gender, contact information, selected events).
    • 2c2) Returning competitors must provide personal information consistent with their WCA profile. If a competitor wishes to change or update their personal information between competitions (e.g. a change of nationality, name, or gender), they must contact the WCA Results Team.
  • 2d) A competitor's name, country, gender, and competition results are considered public information. All other personal information is considered confidential, and must not be disclosed to outside organizations/persons without the consent of the competitor.

I know there are several trans cubers who have changed their gender, so if you haven't competed yet then I'm sure you can choose which gender identity you want displayed.
