No longer stuck with male or female as the only options! They even allow the ridiculous cisgender as an option:

It's still limited, though.

Facebook still won't let me identify as transvegan astrosexual 4 dimensional polygender. The company is run by cis scum.

Not to mention...

Facebook doesn't want to give you the ability to create infinite possibilities, but to structure its user data into very specific buckets. Otherwise, how can they start tailoring ads to you?!

Yeah, there was some picture about that.

It was mocking gender selections on surveys and census, etc.
