A Gender Neutral Default Profile Picture

Upon the creation of a new profile on nanohub.org, I think that it would be nice if the default picture were something gender neutral. While one could argue that the current default picture is gender ambiguous being just a silhouette of a head, I would say that socially speaking, people will nearly always identify this figure as male. Replacing this image with a gender neutral one (like a question mark or a picture of a wavefunction, anything like that), will help to address the notion that male is, in fact, the default, especially in the sciences and engineering.
