Mayhap I’ll sign up to protest that 50 choices isn’t nearly enough.

Facebook is being all oppressive and stuff with only 50 choices.

Down with facebook/etc.

Well on the Flip side you can put yourself in as “Straight Heterosexual Male” I guess.

I checked and you can “Fill in the blank” on that information, so the Manly Men could put in “Manly Male”

“There’s going to be a lot of people for whom this is going to mean nothing, but for the few it does impact, it means the world,” said Facebook software engineer Brielle Harrison, who worked on the project and is herself undergoing gender transformation, from male to female.


Notice that Fox is just going along with the agenda and using the incorrect pronoun to describe this freak? Glad I stopped watching them years ago.

After much rumination and self-examination, I have decided to define my gender as proto trans-phobic pseudo poly-gender paleo-man.

Darn Facebook left my gender type off the list and unless they want an eight-figure lawsuit filed against them, they better get it up on the list pretty quick and they can consider that fair warning. I'll ask nicely for now but next time they are going to hear from my lawyer.

I consider myself a person who is not transsexual and who has experienced my mental and physical sex as being in alignment with my birth gender. I deserve to have my gender identity respected and recognized by various Internet giants. Not just Facebook but Amazon.com and Google as well. In fact, Google should know better because they have all my search terms in their database and they know what kind of advertisements I click through on.

My proto trans-phobic pseudo poly-gender paleo-man status should not be a secret to them! I deserve to have ads targeted at me consistent with my gender identification in a judgmental and non-pejorative manner. Next time I get an ad for Viagra, I'm calling my lawyer.

9 ... Zucker and his ilk are enemies of civilization every bit as much as Obama.

You got that right. He is an atheistic Jew - same folks who got behind Lenin/Bolsheviks in 1918 and BHO in 2008.

Winston Churchill - "Zionism versus Bolshevism", Illustrated Sunday Herald, FEB 1920

“First there are the Jews who, dwelling in every country throughout the world, identify themselves with that country, enter into its national life and, while adhering faithfully to their own religion, regard themselves as citizens in the fullest sense of the State which has received them. Such a Jew living in England would say, 'I am an English man practising the Jewish faith.' This is a worthy conception, and useful in the highest degree. We in Great Britain well know that during the great struggle the influence of what may be called the 'National Jews' in many lands was cast preponderatingly on the side of the Allies; and in our own Army Jewish soldiers have played a most distinguished part, some rising to the command of armies, others winning the Victoria Cross for valour.

There is no need to exaggerate the part played in the creation of Bolshevism and in the actual bringing about of the Russian Revolution, by these international and for the most part atheistical Jews, it is certainly a very great one; it probably outweighs all others. With the notable exception of Lenin, the majority of the leading figures are Jews. Moreover, the principal inspiration and driving power comes from the Jewish leaders. Thus Tchitcherin, a pure Russian, is eclipsed by his nominal subordinate Litvinoff, and the influence of Russians like Bukharin or Lunacharski cannot be compared with the power of Trotsky, or of Zinovieff, the Dictator of the Red Citadel (Petrograd) or of Krassin or Radek -- all Jews. In the Soviet institutions the predominance of Jews is even more astonishing. And the prominent, if not indeed the principal, part in the system of terrorism applied by the Extraordinary Commissions for Combating Counter-Revolution has been taken by Jews, and in some notable cases by Jewesses. The same evil prominence was obtained by Jews in the brief period of terror during which Bela Kun ruled in Hungary. The same phenomenon has been presented in Germany (especially in Bavaria), so far as this madness has been allowed to prey upon the temporary prostration of the German people. Although in all these countries there are many non-Jews every whit as bad as the worst of the Jewish revolutionaries, the part played by the latter in proportion to their numbers in the population is astonishing.”

seems as though cis means someone whose bio and gender preferences coinside. In other words normative males and females but the non normitives prefer that normal be called cis.

It is so obviously a mental illness to be, for example, born biologically, unambiguously, a man, and to think you are a woman, or think of yourself as a woman, or want people to think of you as a woman. These people, it goes without saying, need love and compassion, not hatred. But it is mental illness: if that’s not mental illness, then NOTHING is mental illness! Facebook is doing them a huge disservice.
