there has been a community to do this on LiveJournal (of which I am a
member) for a long time called <lj user=gender_petition>.  I'm REALLY
surprised it hasn't happened yet, but my view may be skewed based on
my own friends list.  Gender Petition members display the gender
petition blogsticker on their userinfo pages and abstain from
selecting a gender.
