ABC ^ | 2/13/2014 | Russell Goldman

User’s can now select a “custom” gender option.

“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,” Facebook software engineer Brielle Harrison told the Associated Press. Harrison, who worked on the project, is in the process of gender transition, from male to female.

Facebook will also allow users to select between three pronouns: “him,” “her” or “their.”

The following are the 58 gender options identified by ABC News:

Is it a bad thing when I don't even know what the vast majority of these even mean?

Or should I be glad I've lived such a sheltered life?

Looking up a few of these, it seems that most are synonyms.
Distinction seems to be based on the creation of a new term to define yet again a further facet of a psychosis.

“What is “cis?” I’m afraid to ‘google’ it”

From the Urban Distionary:

term used by the transgender lobby is describe women who have had femininity pushed down their throat since birth. They claim being oppressed by hierarchical, limiting gender roles is a PRIVILEGE! These term is misogynist because it erases women's lived reality in favour of men (”transwomen”).

“Transwoman” wow that cis female is so lucky to be treated like a fuck toy and degraded by men her whole life!

I don't know what most of them, either. Although it appears the vast majority of them are different ways of saying the same thing over and over again. FTM is just an abbreviation of "Female to Male" (which is also listed an option)

Andorians on Star Trek have four genders (zhen, shen, chan, and thaan). I should tell them I mentally FEEL Andorian and feel discriminated against since there's no "thaan" option. The fact its fictional isn't an excuse either... they have a facebook language option for "pirate" so everything will be written like Long John Silver.

"Genderqueer"

Hmmmm. Okay, lefties, as long as you want to portray the GLBTQWHATEVERTHEITIALSARETHISWEEK movement as the same as racial discrimination, then aren't homosexuals who self-identify as "queer" doing the same thing as blacks that self-identify as "niggas"? If I call them "queer", you'd claim it's a hate crime. Interesting they're allowed to use the label, though.

It’s what used to be called “normal”. A male who was born a male and thinks he’s a male, or a female who was born a female and thinks she’s a female.

Normality is now a radical concept in this age.

Thanks neo-Marxists! I hope the Mohammedans that you love so dearly drive you to extinction.

Most are essentially synonyms.

There’s a contradiction within the nonconformist community. They all want to be special yet have a community.

It’s an ego thing. Gender IS binary for literally 99% of the population. They want their sexual identity and sexual attraction acknowledged. How often have you met a heterosexual who made sure you knew all about his sex life?

Why stop at 58? That’s discriminatory. There should be at least 580 genders for freaks.

What is “cis?”

I had to look that up too. Apparently, normal people are cissexual (as opposed to transsexual). So, “cis male” means you are a normal male. The problem with this is that by forcing normal people to adopt “cis male” or “cis female”, you are being co-opted into this whole insane mess. People who do facebook (I do NOT) should demand that “male” and “female” be added.

The problem with DC is that 99% of them are on that list rather than good old fashioned “male” and “female”.

I did Google it, and I'm not sorry, I'm astonished. And you will be too.

"CIS" (cissexual. Shrug) means the "biological sex" matches the "identified sex." IOW, if you are born a man and think of yourself as a man in every way, then you are said to be "CIS." This is revolting to me, because it means "Normal" is considered an applicable label. If you're a guy, you are a "cis-male," not simply "male."

The other labels in the list are just various forms of trans-gender. Imagine anything, it'll work. But putting "Cis" in front of your identity makes their adjustments look good. I have no clue about a lot of them, but I'll be danged if I Google them. "Neutrois?" That one scares me. The only reason I Googled "CIS" was because it was about a third to a half of the list.

Wiki entry.

I looked it up, too.

The cis- prefix means “on this side”.

In gemetrical isomer nomenclature, the prefix cis- and trans- are used to identify which side of the double bond the similar atoms are found. The cis- prefix is from the Latin meaning “on this side”. In this case, the chlorine atoms are on the same side of the carbon-carbon double bond. This isomer is called cis-1,2-dichloroethene.

I guess it means if you like your Weiner you can keep your Weiner..
