IT'S COMPLICATED?

Will Facebook Add Gender Neutral Sex Option For Trans And Genderqueer Users?

Google+ is the hip new social networking site just like MySpace once was… and Friendster. So of course, Facebook will desperately fight for its market share by fucking up Facebook chat adopting some of Google+’s best features. For example, Google+ allows its users to keep their gender private or to choose “their” as a gender pronoun instead of the binary “he” or “she”. So will Facebook acquiesce to an online petition asking them to provide similar gender options for intersexuals, transexuals, and genderqueers as well as pangender, genderless, androgynous, trigender and multi-gender users? Hmmm… With so many options other than “male” or “female” maybe Facebook will just add a choice saying, “It’s complicated.” But for those of us who don’t fit neatly into the male and female checkboxes, adding a third gender seems like the simplest solution by far.
