Add "other" to the gender on Facebook
This petition made change with 98 supporters!
There are countless trans*, non-binary, and genderqueer people who use Facebook for social networking, but the only options for gender on the site are "male" and "female". One simple fix can make Facebook more inclusive of the trans* community! Making "other" available as a gender option (and the gender neutral pronoun "their") rather than she/he is a tiny change that will make Facebook a much safer, inclusive on-line space for so many. There are many, many people who do not identify as male or female and, upon signing up for facebook, being forced to choose between male or female can create a great deal of discomfort, sadness, dysphoria, etc. As such, there are also people who find themselves attracted to folk who identify as something other than male or female. Adding this option is sure to be a help to many and may bring new users that were discouraged to join before.It is also preferable users be given the option to specify their gender identity and preferred pronouns.Everyone in facebook deserves the freedom to tell their gender even if it's neither male or female.I don't need facebook telling me I don't exist. It's about our right and freedom...
