RE: Facebook's recent addition of 56 Gender choices
I took a human sexuality class in College, not long ago.

There are five gender types. I remember the most common three: woman, man, androgynous. You will find it next to impossible to isolate the 5 we studied in a college class, on the internet.

Sex is not the same as gender, and as we know, sex and gender often challenge the heterosexual ideal.

Because sex, gender, and desire (as long as desire does not include children) are so complex and personally affected, I prefer to accept the identity / name a person chooses.

Quite.

My gender is "Meat Popsicle," and I'm suing Facebook for defamatory discrimination against my gender.

Isn't that 'sex' rather than 'gender'?

I don't know what I am anymore, What's Cis? No idea!

Lucky I don't have to choose.

No

cis
sis/

adjective: cis

1.
denoting or relating to a molecular structure in which two particular atoms or groups lie on the same side of a given plane in the molecule, in particular denoting an isomer in which substituents at opposite ends of a carbon–carbon double bond are on the same side of the bond.

Somehow, I think that might not be what they mean though Consider

How silly. From here on out I am just going to put "other" when ever possible and let people wonder.

Odd they left off the simplest one, it's complicated.
