Facebook has edited some of their options, allowing users to be both a male and female. Facebook lets U.S. users choose among 50 additional options such as “transgender,” “cisgender,” “gender fluid,” “intersex” and “neither.”
On Facebook’s Diversity Page they said, “When you come to Facebook to connect with the people, causes, and organizations you care about, we want you to feel comfortable being your true, authentic self. An important part of this is the expression of gender, especially when it extends beyond the definitions of just “male” or “female.” So today, we’re proud to offer a new custom gender option to help you better express your own identity on Facebook.”
Facebook has always taken pride in allowing users to show the world exactly who they are.
We are still unsure of when the gender options will be available outside of the U.S.
