Can we use non-gravatar avatars?

Why am I being forced to use Gravatar when I want to upload an avatar to my profile?

Is it possible to just upload an avatar image directly to my profile without creating a Gravatar account?

There is no way to upload avatars to your profile directly, without going though Gravatar.
