I was looking for a way to enable DOB and Gender and well I saw that there is a configuration under System → Configuration → Customers → Cusotmers Configuration → Name and Address Options and there should be two dropdowns with the configuration for DOB and Gender. The thing I saw is that in app/code/core/Enterprise/Customer/etc/system.xml is that they are not configurable through any of the three scopes (Default, Website and Store), the code here:

I hope someone has the answer.

In Magento EE you can change DOB, Gender and other customer attributes behavior in Customers -> Attributes -> Manage Customer Attributes.

Both DOB and Gender fields are not visible in frontend by default. You can make them visible by changing "Show on Frontend" to "Yes" in attribute edit form.

As far as I know, with Magento EE, you can manage the customer attributes (Add, remove, enable visibility to frontend)... So we don't need the other options.

Go to System -> Configuration -> Customer -> Customer Configuration -> Name and Address Options

Now you need to change Show date of Birth from Optional to Required. Same has to do with gender.
