Facebook Makes More Gender Options Available To All Its Users

Finally, the mighty Goliath who stood against equal rights for all has crumbled … Facebook has opened up its allowable options to 50 different gender classifications. I’m of course kidding about Facebook being against equal rights, they’ve long been one of the most progressive and vocal proponents of this sort of discussion. In fact, even before they had the enormous list of gender choices which range from the staid “boy” and “girl” to “transgender,” “cisgender,” “gender fluid,” “intersex” and “neither,” they had the incredibly cool “It’s complicated” option. Even I thought about hitting that one when I first signed on to Facebook back in the day.
