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.
