Facebook: Please put more options in your "gender" and "interested in..." parts of a person's "Basic Info" section.

Of all of the people on Facebook, not everybody is "male" or "female". Some people are bigender, trigender, genderfluid, pangender, etc.  Gender isn't "black and white", so to speak.  I would like all genders to be represented, to be listed. 

And in regards to the "Interested in..." section, not everybody is interested in men or women, or both.  There are more sexual identities that "gay", "lesbian", "bisexual" and "straight".  Some people are pansexual or asexual, for example.  In addition, some people just identify as "queer".  I want all sexual orientations to be listed also. I believe that the "interested in..." tab should be called "sexual orientation", as well. 

I would imagine that if Facebook made these changes, people, such as myself, would feel more included, more true to themselves if they can put the exact terms that describe them, what they identify as, in the "Basic Information" portion of their Facebook account.

      As someone who adheres to the sexual orientation "Pansexual," I'd very much appreciate if sexual orientation was included in basic information rather than "interested in..." Thank you.

      not everyone identifies as either male or female. some consider themselves neither or both or whatever and that is fine. I don't think they should be forced to choose between two narrow options if they don't feel like it works for them.

      I too have many friends who do not fit into these general typifications.
