Original Title: Facebook adds 50 new gender terms, as well as preferred pronoun choices, to social media site
You dont have to be just male or female on Facebook anymore. The social media giant is adding 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.
Facebook said the changes, shared with The Associated Press before the launch on Thursday, initially cover the companys 159 million monthly users in the U.S. and are aimed at giving people more choices in how they describe themselves, such as androgynous, bi-gender, intersex, gender fluid or transsexual.

Hey, America! Now you can customize your depravity in ways never thought possible taking the specialization that your individuality deserves to new levels of specie-ization.
Warning! What you are about to read in he following paragraph may put you at risk for stroke, similar health hazard from laughing beyond your capacity to survive.
Theres 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. On Thursday, while watchdogging the software for any problems, she said she was also changing her Facebook identity from Female to TransWoman.
LOL LOL LOL BUWHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!
The TransWoman Rallying Call
I am TransWoman hear me roar,
in numbers too big to ignore!
It's too bad they don't list all fifty possibilities because I really need a good laugh!!
I am sure some version thereof of sodomite, pedophile, I heard fudgepacker is definitely a yes, I think and the article does list androgynous, bi-gender, intersex, gender fluid or transsexual.
I just can't wait to hear the rest of the names just knowing TransWoman is one of the fifty.
I did call Facebook Department of Sexual Genders and wanted to know if plain old fa**ot would be okay and got a terse no comment.
We should DEMAND that they add 50 more terms for straight folks as well!
Straight n’ Great
Will not bend for a friend
I’m updating my status to “gender-fluid androgyne”.
[has a nice shapeshifting ring to it]
First rock & roll music, then movies, then network TV, and now Facebook all working to corrupt the American family and our identity.
Don’t be surprised if very soon in schools and the government also recognizes each of these gender terms complicating the US Census forms and making if difficult to find the right public bathroom.
I didn’t see the one that says, ‘Woman with husband who used to be President and has his way with other women so I can’t reveal my gender term or I will not get elected President’ too.
Fifty Shades of Gay.
50 Different gender descriptions?????
I know about the “LGBT” peoples, but that’s only 4. Add in regular male and female, and we are up to 6. There are 44 other possibilities? Who knew?
I bet you have to be liberal for any of this to make sense.
Just check 'all of the above'.

Hey, there are 57 states, so...
My son picked Gender Fluid because “Sometimes I feel like a man and sometimes I feel a woman”.
I need to have a long talk with that boy.
Just think, you can go into construction to build the 48 more bathrooms that will soon be required everywhere. Ca Ching!

I can see it now...”TransWoman Airlines- From here to maternity.”
