More The Merrier: Facebook Adds 56 Gender Options

February 14, 2014

So apparently Facebook now has 56 different custom gender options selectable via an autocomplete option under the gender tab. Unsurprisingly, they still don't have the one I'm looking for. The whole list:

Agender, Androgyne, Androgynous, Bigender, Cis, Cisgender, Cis Female, Cis Male, Cis Man, Cis Woman, Cisgender Female, Cisgender Male, Cisgender Man, Cisgender Woman, Female to Male, FTM, Gender Fluid, Gender Nonconforming, Gender Questioning, Gender Variant, Genderqueer, Intersex, Male to Female, MTF, Neither, Neutrois, Non-binary, Other, Pangender, Trans, Trans*, Trans Female, Trans* Female, Trans Male, Trans* Male, Trans Man, Trans* Man, Trans Person, Trans* Person, Trans Woman, Trans* Woman, Transfeminine, Transgender, Transgender Female, Transgender Male, Transgender Man, Transgender Person, Transgender Woman, Transmasculine, Transsexual, Transsexual Female, Transsexual Male, Transsexual Man, Transsexual Person, Transsexual Woman, Two-Spirit

So, did Facebook add the other options because they realize its users are all unique like snowflakes and might not identify their gender as a simple male or female? Or -- OR -- to better target advertising? Sadly, I think we all know the answer here.

Thanks to E V I L A R E S, who's so evil it's become his gender.

    Jesus CHRIST. Stop being so triggered, reactionary cucks. Gender is a bimodal distribution, not a binary. (Also, 'transgender' isn't a gender -- this is a conflation).

  • WRONGonRED

    only four options available in the real world. penis, vagina, neither or both

  • Bob McBob

    Lol americans. We laugh at your bullshit. Sincerely, the rest of the world.

    Nobody gives a fuck if you are a otherkin transspecies ethereal entity flying in a poop spaceship.

  • Jared Gonzales

    So you're saying that FB should just get rid of the option to list one's gender all together, or just that you're threatened by a trans person (etc) expressing theirs?

  • fdafda

    well I'd give a little of a fuck to know about the poop spaceship

  • Codongolev

    did you even check before you posted this? I just did, it just says "male," "female," and "custom," and if you choose custom you can type anything you want, and it has autosuggest options. that's like saying google has a certain number of "search options."

  • Marc Nadeau

    Where's the 'gender bender' option?

  • disqus_k2QxOV9H7Z

    In Futurama.

  • KLanD

    @@disqus_YgliG3EkRu:disqus christ, enbies are a thing, chill out you triggered cuck

  • KLanD

    Lol.. what? Triggered? Sorry not following.

    Wtf is an 'enbie'?

  • Alexandria P.
  • KLanD

    Jesus... Why can't you just say non-binary.. why do people these days feel the need to keep inventing new words fors terms and words that already exist.

    It's also not a gender, it's an identity.

  • Alexandria P.

    Yep, you're triggered.

  • KLanD

    Hahahaha.. nope. But you are projecting lol

  • KLanD

    So.. I'm guessing that's some hip new word for "correct* or "right".. cause that's the only thing that would make that statement make any sense.

    Man.. you people really like to make the English language difficult don't you?

  • timeiskey

    youve never heard of:

    Trans, Trans*, Trans Female, Trans* Female, Trans Male, Trans* Male, Trans Man, Trans* Man, Trans Person, Trans* Person, Trans Woman, Trans* Woman, Transgender, Transgender Female, Transgender Male, Transgender Man, Transgender Person, Transgender Woman,

    pretty sure you have

  • KLanD

    Except.. those aren't genders and you repeated yourself several times. Lol

  • KLanD

    Those aren't genders. You've posted a mix of gender identities and personal descriptors...

    Not to mention nearly all of the above could be reduced to one word.. Transgender.

    That is a qualifier.. not a gender.
