Facebook just implemented non binary options for gender, such as transgender, gender neutral, gender fluid, and so on. At the moment, GaG only allows two gender options, male and female. This excludes anybody with a non binary gender. I for one feel this to be somewhat annoying, especially for anyone who would like to be on this site but doesn't know what gender they should put themselves as. Do you believe this should be changed to include allow people to change their gender to gender queer, and why or why not?
The ability to decline to state ought to be sufficient. The science explaining gender, sexual preference, identity, etc is practically not science at this point, but borders on conjecture. I think our society places an unnecessary pressure on labeling and categorization of minutiae and we ought not rush to inject poorly understood ideas into the general public prematurely.
I don't think so. Most people are born male or female and it is easier to distinguish if there is no queer feature and even if you are queer you can mention that in your question or make it obvious by being a male asking about a man or a woman asking about a woman. Most people are not gender neutral.
Sure, why not. :) If Facebook can do it that GaG can.
Transgenders identify as the gender they've changed to though. So if they feel that they're a male then they sign up as a male, it's the same if they feel they're female. If they want people to see them as the gender they identify with then why would they want to be under a different category? A friend of mine just came out as female to male Transgender but he doesn't like to draw attention to it. He wants people to just see him as a male, and not as a Transgender or as someone who used to be female. So I imagine if he signed up for this site he'd want to sign up as a male.
If your a female, then your a female. If your a male, then your a male. There shouldn't be any of this "I don't know who I am or who I want to be, I am neither a guy nor girl". Well if you're neither, then there must be a problem cause in my book, there is only male or female. None of this neutral crap.
