Did you know that Facebook gives users 58 gender options? And did you also know that 58 is apparently not inclusive enough? That’s why they decided to add a 59th “fill in the blank option.”
“Now, if you do not identify with the pre-populated list of gender identities, you are able to add your own,” Facebook announced online Thursday morning.
ABC News reported that a transgender Facebook employee hopes that this move will help “open up the dialogue.”
Because obviously, 58 genders isn’t enough. I don’t even know why I’m surprised. For crying out loud, Wesleyan University doesn’t think the LGBT acronym is inclusive enough, so they changed it to LGBTTQQFAGPBDSM.
