50 New Gender Options for Facebook Users

50 New Gender Options for Facebook Users

Now with just a click of a cursor you can change from Male to Trans Male. With another click of a cursor you can change from Female to Genderqueer. There are three preferred pronoun choices: him, her or them. Facebook is trying to give the company's 159 million monthly users more choices in how they describe themselves.


"Of course Facebook is entitled to manage its wildly popular site as it sees fit, but here is the bottom line: It's impossible to deny the biological reality that humanity is divided into two halves - male and female," said Jeff Johnston, an issues analyst for Focus on the Family, an influential national religious organization based in Colorado Springs, Colo. "Those petitioning for the change insist that there are an infinite number of genders, but just saying it doesn't make it so. That said, we have a great deal of compassion for those who reject their biological sex and believe they are the opposite sex."
