Skip to comments.Facebook adds 50 gender options for users: For those who can't make up their minds

Are you confused about your gender? You know, man, woman, trans, queer, neutral...and on and on.
Well, there's good news for you people who can't seem to make up your minds. Facebook is adding 50 options to identify what gender your are...or, rather, what you see yourself as...or maybe what you think is hip.
From Associated Press:
"With a click of a cursor, Jay Brown in Cheverly, Md., went from Male to Trans Male. A few states away, Debon Garrigues of Asheville, N.C., switched from Male to Neutral. In San Francisco, Marilyn Roxie, formerly Female, chose three: Androgynous, Transgender and Genderqueer.
Across the country Thursday, news swept through the transgender community that social media giant Facebook had added a customizable option with about 50 different terms people can use to identify their gender as well as three preferred pronoun choices: him, her or them. And one after another, they made their changes in a quiet revolution of sorts.
"For me, this is about much more than a button on a monitor," Garrigues said. "This encourages people to think outside the binary spectrum. It means I don't have to try to fit in the wrong boxes."
For many others, the change went unnoticed - or too far. "Of course Facebook is entitled to manage its wildly popular site as it sees fit, but here is the bottom line: It's impossible to deny the biological reality that humanity is divided into two halves - male and female," said Jeff Johnston, an issues analyst for Focus on the Family, an influential national religious organization based in Colorado Springs, Colo. "Those petitioning for the change insist that there are an infinite number of genders, but just saying it doesn't make it so. "

I hear one of the options is “Helen Thomas”.
Don’t invoke that name! You know what happens when you write that name!
Doesn't someone have to say it three times, like Bettlejuice?
This country is going down the toilet isn’t it?
Is there an option for those who are half dog, half human
Here’s a suggestion. How about just three?
Do they have “Male straight who can’t stand liberal marxist slimebags who are destroying this country with their BS” sex?
Well, we live in a brave new world now. You can’t just go by what’s between the legs, to verify the sex of a person.
I am limited in my thinking, according to the liberals. If you have a binary view of sex and gender, you just aren’t aware of the wide world of gay lesbian and GOD KNOW WHATELSE. SEND ME TO RE EDUCATION CAMP RIGHT NOW.
Hell in a handbasket.
LOL I knew someone would post this
I always wondered how it would feel to have 4 legs and a tail
Oh, belly buttons:....
Well, I guess this shows where my mind was, LOL.
I prefer the one that libtards hate: “Normal”
I always wondered how it would feel to have 4 legs and a tail
Now is your chance.
I can’t poop standing up though, so I think I’ll pass
“Transitioning to male” is one... How that works i have no idea.
I took a look, the options are male, female, or custom. You can make it be whatever you want it to be.
I’m holding out for the “Cismale Gendernormative Fascist” option. . .
That would be the “Helen Thomas” option. . .
I cant poop standing up though, so I think Ill pass
practice, practice, practice!
50 Shades of Gay.
They could have just summed it all up with one selection-
Here is the full list of Facebook’s 56 gender options. (Note: I have split the list into various groupings):
Female to Male
Male to Female
IMHO, people who seriuosly have to go to these lengths to somehow define themselves have already gone over the edge psychologically, and are in free fall.
Their best hope is to find Jesus Christ in their life, come unto Him, and then follow His teachings and find peace and security for their souls.
AMERICA AT THE CROSSROADS OF HISTORY
I’m offended. I’m calling my lawyer. I’m a lesbian trapped in a mans body and they didn’t include me.
Waaaay too slow.
Think of the Winter Olympics for an analogy.
I'm not sure if Downhill Skiing or Bobsled is a better comparison.
Come to think of it, I believe we are in the same position as a Ski Jumper. We've traveled down that long slope, gaining speed. The "Sexual Revolution" of the late 60's & 70's was like hitting the ramp at the end.
Everyone yelled "Wheeeee!!!".
No one bothered to look where we are going to land.
I'm offended too because I'm not sure if I'm a 'computer controlled robot' or a 'hologram' or some other test tube science project. They did not include me.
Like SarahBaracuda say's, our country is so messed up.
What about parrot gender? I remember reading once a story of a guy who was attracted to parrots LOL!
You know what this is like? The music industry which is another thing destroyed by liberals. There use to be a few genres in music such as classical, jazz, blues, RnR, R&B, big band. Now they have classifications that go on forever, just 100s of them with a new one sprouting up every week it seems. How about just “good music”?? Same with sex - Gay or straight? But noooooooo, liberals have to classify down to the last freakin’ atom because of their freakin’ obsession with control.
Question: Is "Bigender" pronounced "Bi-Gender" (meaning "swings both ways") or is it pronounced "Big-Ender" (meaning "Fat Ass")?
Genesis 1:27 God created mankind in his image; in the image of God he created them; male and female* he created them.
I think this pretty much sums it up nicely. BTW what is "Cis"?
Color me stupid, WTF is “Cis”?
Chris Plante (WMAL WASHDC) went over this today and said they left off
Retro Sexual....he wanted to have Sex like in the 50’s as long as Don Drapers wife was available (Not really sure he didn’t mean Joan as he mentioned he liked how she filled out her dresses)
He also asked if ‘YOU called me to say I am being judgmental, aren’t you being judgmental’?
I just checked my facebook, and they have a “custom” option, but it lets me type in anything I want. I’m not sure if this is a change, or what.
RE: Color me stupid, WTF is Cis?
Cis male stands for “male with a male gender identity”, cis female for “female with a female gender identity”, analogically cis man and cis woman, as well as cissexism and cissexual assumption.
RE: BTW what is “Cis”?
Cis male stands for male with a male gender identity, cis female for female with a female gender identity, analogically cis man and cis woman, as well as cissexism and cissexual assumption.
