What even is gender anymore? People have taken it's original meaning and butchered it.

Kudos to Facebook then, nice to see they're being more inclusive. Also worth noting they've added an option for preferred pronouns.

It's ridiculous really, if you're born with a penis you're a male if you're born with a vagina you're a female

I wish they'd just call it sex and include the option 'god'.

That's sex, not gender. And also way oversimplified.

cut one off and socially construct the individual from there. it has worked so well in the past.

Pangender (similar to Androgyne)
EDIT: Never mind, misead :facepalm:

Still, there's a need for 'other'. It's inevitable that someone will fall outside of those options.

But that poster said the point is what you were born with.

How about we have no options at all? It makes more sense simply to not label it.

Misread your post, sorry

Thought you meant there wasn't other.

But tbf, there's always going to be something missed out when you give options for anything. So it makes sense to still have other.

I can understand the need for inclusiveness but the difference between a lot of these seems very superficial. I can't get my head around, for example, the difference between Transsexual Male and Transsexual Man.

I'm not an expert, but it seems to me there are some redundant ones?

But anyway, this can only be a good thing. If it bothers you, just select 'cis male' or 'cis female' and ignore everything else...
