Facebook's new gender identity options
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.
They can also choose one of three preferred pronoun choices: him, her, them.
Facebook says the changes initially cover the company's 159 million monthly users in the U.S. and are aimed at giving people more choices on how they describe themselves such as androgynous, bi-gender, or transsexual.
The company will also allow people to keep their gender identity private.
New gender options Facebook is making available for U.S. users:
Female to Male
Male to Female
Trans * Female
Trans * Male
Trans * Man
Trans * Person
Trans * Woman
