Add "Other" as a gender option for users

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. Please sign and share! Let's get Facebook to make this change!

      Gender isn't a binary.

      This is a battle that really needs to be won in courts and on passports, but having recognition from an organisation as big as facebook of a third gender would help push the legislature in the right direction.

      Because many people do not want to be categorised in the dichotomy of 'man' or 'woman', some at all. How hard is to be more accommodating?
