Facebook Adds New Gender Options

Traci Taylor

Facebook just took a major step toward becoming more inclusive.  Facebook now offers users customizable gender options in addition to the standard “male” and “female” choices.

This means you don’t have to be strictly a man or a woman on Facebook anymore. Facebook members can choose from 50 different labels, like “transgender,” “intersex” and simply “neither.”

The reason Facebook is offering these options is because they want all users, regardless of how they identify sexually, “to feel comfortable being [their] true, authentic self” when using the site.

Facebook reportedly worked with several sexual advocacy organizations to come up with the new gender labels.
