Male Or Female? Not Such An Easy Question With Facebook’s New Gender Categories

According to Facebook’s newest gender designations, being a male or a female isn’t so simple anymore. Amid pressure from LGBT activists the monstrous social media site had added 56 new categories for people to choose from when deciding if they’re a male or a female, and liberals across the nation couldn’t be happier about it.

Liberal pundits across the nation are praising the decision because of the possible conservative backlash, happy that many will be upset that such a simple choice has been made so convoluted.

Liberal columnist Paris Lees from the UK Guardian hailed the decision and said “I look forward to right-wing commentators telling us how absurd it is and how affronted they are by something that really isn’t a concern for anyone other than it concerns.”

A Facebook software engineer also praised the decision, Brielle Harrison who’s undergoing gender transformation from male to female said that “There’s going to be a lot of people for who this is going to mean nothing, but for the few it does impact, it means the word.” She added that “All too often transgendered people like myself and other non-conforming people are given this binary option, do you want to be male or female? And it’s kind of disheartening because none of those let us tell others who we really are.”

There has already been opposition to the move as well, with Jeff Johnson who’s an issues analyst for Focus On The Family saying “Of course Facebook is allowed to manage its wildly popular site as it sees fit, but here’s the bottom line: It’s impossible to deny the biological reality that humanity is divided into two halves – male and female,” then he added that “Those petitioning for the change insist that there are an infinite number of genders, but just saying it doesn’t make it so. That said, we have a great deal of compassion for those who reject their biological sex and believe they are the opposite sex.”
