I am building a social app, but I'm stuck at one place. I have to show the gender of a user. I was thinking of a few things-
Maybe i could show those gender icons like these,besides every user name.
But these are very confusing to the general user. Many might not find these easy to understand.
I was thinking about plain M / F near the name.
Full word type - Male / Female. But in some situation where space is low, these might create problems.
My question is what might be the best way to show the gender of a user, which would fit in all the situations whether less space or more and of course should look nice.
Considering the user already selected his/her gender, now just to show it to the other users, like in their profile.
