Facebook Adds 50 New Gender Options
Sure, it’s plagued with spam, but Facebook continues to revamp. This week, the popular site went beyond the bounds of male or female; users now have 50 different gender options that include “transgender,” “cisgender,” “gender fluid,” “intersex” or ..”Neither.”
Guys and gals can also choose their preferred pronoun: she or her, he or his or the gender-unbiased “they or their.”
The change covers the company’s 159 million monthly users in the U.S. and is aimed at giving people more choices in how they describe themselves, according to The Associated Press.
This development is a huge step towards acceptance and equality in the world.
