A silhouette Duo icon would be adorable!

(And nicely not gender related!)

I am suggesting this as an addition to the existing two icons, not as a replacement.

Apparently, only for some. hrm..now I wish I had waited to post this to see if they were planning to adopt it more widely or not.

Oh, so it's one of their trials that's only available to some people? I thought I was going crazy, I've gone searching for how to switch to the female icon multiple times but couldn't find it anywhere!

I like your idea a lot; a fun, colourful, gender-neutral owl is a much better default picture than a boring, grey silhouette that may or may not be related to a user's gender.

They are both me. I was trying to test a theory. I don't recommend making more than one account however, as it can skew what duolingo's retention rate looks like (If I had thought of that at the time I made them, I would not have made them.)
