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.
