Default FACEBOOK Adds 50 Terms For Users' to Identify Gender...

This is great progress.


ENLO PARK, Calif. (AP) -- You don't 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 company's 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.

"There's 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.

"All too often transgender people like myself and other gender nonconforming people are given this binary option, do you want to be male or female? What is your gender? And it's kind of disheartening because none of those let us tell others who we really are," she said. "This really changes that, and for the first time I get to go to the site and specify to all the people I know what my gender is."

This is fucked up.

One of the hardest parts of the human condition is the existance of two sexes. One only has to watch a nature documentary to see how bad it is for males or read human history to see how bad it is for females.

However, the universe was not set up for our pleasure or convenience(unless david icke). The point of two genders is to create competition. The problem with competition is often, you lose.

(and now with marriage destroyed we are no longer protected from this harsh situation, but that's digression)

To be fair, (gentile)Social communists seem often to dwell on solving the human condition and in this case, what sells this many genders thing is heart break and instability, something which social communism has greatly exaserbated to begin with!

(but that's communism isn't it? Break them and rebuild them as you want them?)

In conclusion many genders will create more pain and more losers than two. Now if we could have evolved to be asexual reproducers then we'd be right as rain. However we didn't, and even if you killed off either males or females, the remaining gender would still create distinctions. Because that's how we've evolved. Humans love distinction. We love it and hate it, depending on where one sees oneself on the hierarchy of one's sphere of contact with humanity.

Default Facebook Adds Custom Gender Options for Transgender Members

Facebook Adds Custom Gender Options for Transgender Members

Facebook announced on Thursday that it will offer a custom gender option for its transgender members in the United States, as well as increased privacy settings.

Transgender members among the social network's 159 million monthly users in the U.S. can chose to be addressed by him, her, or them. "People who select a custom gender will now have the ability to choose the pronoun they’d like to be referred to publicly — male (he/his), female (she/her) or neutral (they/their)," the social network said in a statement. Members can further chose from a variety of options to identify their sexuality, including androgynous, transgender and gender fluid. "We also have added the ability for people to control the audience with whom they want to share their custom gender," Facebook added.

"This new feature is a step forward in recognizing transgender people and allows them to tell their authentic story in their own words," GLAAD President Sarah Kate Ellis, whose LGBT rights organization worked with Facebook to create the new settings, said in a statement. "Once again, Facebook is on the forefront of ensuring that the platform is safe and accessible to all of its LGBT users."

Though currently available only to U.S. members, the new gender options address a petition launched by LGBT rights network All Out, demanding that Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg add additional gender options on the social network. "Nepal, India, Pakistan, and Australia legally recognize third genders, but Facebook refuses to offer additional gender options," read the petition which had 38,566 Internet signatures as of Thursday afternoon.

With a history of supporting anti-bullying programs for LGBT teens, Facebook further supported LGBT rights in 2011 when it added "In a Civil Union" and "In a Domestic Partnership" options to user profiles. In 2012, gay marriage timline icons for same-sex couples were added to the social network.

This is the most exciting development in the world of computer software since Windows 95 removed the 8 character file name limit!

Incase we did not already understand we are in an ideological environment.

50! It's like them wiping their gay dick in our faces.

Seriously, I am absolutely shit at learning a new language, but if I were halfway capable, I would take off and live in Russia, Greece, whatever.

Fuck these Jewish, Masonic, Homo cunts.
