If you are using English (U.S.) as your language of choice on Facebook, you now have more options to describe your gender.

In light of the growing transgender community worldwide, it was only matter of time that Facebook implemented such as feature. Not doing so would have been tantamount to discrimination.

The option is located within Update Info option on your Profile page.

Under Basic Information, click Edit to the right of the line containing your Gender.

To see the other Gender options, select Custom from the drop down menu.

By providing this feature Facebook has sent a message to the transgender community that Facebook is their social network too. There is no doubt this gesture will go down well for Facebook.
