Facebook users who dont identify as either male or female will finally be able to customize their gender identity — and preferred pronouns — on their profiles. Facebook disclosed the changes to the Associated Press just before rolling them out. Facebook software engineer Brielle Harrison explained the importance of this change to the AP: Theres 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. Harrison identifies as TransWoman, an option she can now also display on her page. Until recently, Facebook only offered a few gender options for users: you could identify as male, as female, or as a hidden, neutral option.
