Facebook today announced that users in the US now have the ability to select a custom gender for their Timeline profile pages. Aside from Male or Female, Facebook now offers Other, a new setting that lets users choose between ten gender options such as cisgender, transgender, and intersex, and define which pronoun theyd like to be referred to as — he / his, she / her, or they / their. Moreover, Facebook also now lets you define exactly who can see the Gender section on your profile. Facebook says it worked closely with LGBT activist groups to choose the new profile options. The social network hasnt provided a timeline on when the new option will roll out to the rest of its users outside the US.
