    i really dont understand why so many fuss about the comment text color!
    May i ask instead, if anyone can help me displaying the male and female icons when the user submits his comment?
    p.s. to those who dont fit in these two categories or dont want to tell their gender i´ll put 4 images for the user to select: 0+ and 0-> and 0+> for homosexuals and finally ? for those who want to make a secret out of it.

    Pink for girls and hot pink for boys!!
    Sorry couldn't help it. It's the pink/blue issue that people made fuss about.
    Maybe a custom field for comments?

    This is the code that i have so far (please dont laugh..)
    In the comments page i added this:
    <INPUT onclick="document.images.display.src='man.gif'" type=button value=Man name=face2>
    <INPUT onclick="document.images[0].src='woman.gif'" type=button value=Woman name=face2>
    <img src="man.gif" name="display" width="15" height="16" id="display">
    that makes 2 buttons, one named Man other named Women, that when clicked by the user change the image to the corresponding gender.
    What i dont know how to do, is pass this info when the user clicks submit..

    forgot:
    ALSO add this to your wp-comments-post.php somewhere BEFORE the other thing you should add here:
    $gender = trim(strip_tags($_POST['radiobutton']));

    Wouldn't it be much cooler, and less offensive to people who don't conform to society's ridiculously narrow and arbitrary restriction of gender to two poles, to allow commenters to choose their own colour from a whole range? BTW, are there custom fields for comments?
    Underblog - just add politics :-P

    @ jmschot : once again thanks, i´ll try your code later on (as i´m working right now.. or should be)
    @ underblog : letting people choose their color would make text comments a rainbow :)

    but rainbows are pretty!!!
    you could just give them those 7 colours...
    or say some 5 colours..

    GAWD. Okay people, there are two normally occuring genders for Homo Sapiens in nature, get over it. And it has nothing to do with society; if you wanted to make a society argument you would have to reference gender roles, or lifestyle choices. Society doesn't dictate genetics.
    You could pretty easily just use custom meta data for this. The function would be pretty trivial, especially if you stick to the aforementioned normally occuring genders for our species.

    Jesuit, forgive me. I was joking. What I really meant was that some ladies don't like pink, and some men do.
    P.s. Gender is often used to mean a social and psychological construct (including sex, sexuality, self-image etc), as opposed to sex, which is purely biological.
    I'll shut up now.

    and you´ll post comments again, i´m sure, cause i´ll have an option just for you! man> blue, girl> pink, lily> green! :)
    now, serious, my intention was merely diferentiate male from female. as the color system caused some complaints, i´ll use the icon one.
