Facebook Gender Options

While Facebook’s new gender options are a big improvement over the male/female binary options it used to have, there are still a few issues:

  1. Facebook provides predefined options only for male and female. Add a predefined nonbinary gender as well, with They-Them pronouns.
  2. Some of the options available in gender, for instance “Transgender”, are a mix of gender and assigned gender, and labeling them as “Gender” invalidates the gender of transgender people. Label them as “Gender stuff” instead.
