You Can Now List Yourself as Being Polygender, Cisgender or a Two-Spirit Person on Facebook

Following in the footsteps of Facebook US, the UK arm of Zuckerberg's social network has expanded its list of profile gender options to include 70 new terms. Working alongside the Gendered Intelligence and Press for Change outreach groups, everything from "transexual" to "two-spirit person" is now available for selection.

You can also select your own preferred pronoun for use with notifications and birthday reminders, including the neutral they/their option. You've control over who can see what you select from the new options, while Facebook has stated it will not share gender information with advertisers. [Independent]
