(PCM) Facebook has allowed it’s users several dozen new options when it comes to gender. Now in addition to your birthday, job, hobbies, schooling, interests and current location, you have the option of telling the world your very most specific, personal orientation.
Your very own fine-tuned gender.
The gender-identifying terms provided by Facebook include androgynous, gender fluid, non-binary, trans* and cisgender. Previously, users had to identify themselves as male or female.
The list we’ve discovered so far includes:
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
The Trans* in some of the options is basically computer-speak that there is something more, like trans-gender, trans-sexual, etc.
Everybody probably noticed right away that they fogot “Pan-Sexual” but user’s can now select a “custom” gender option, so everybody is covered.
Facebook will also allow users to select between three pronouns: “him,” “her” or “their.”
