Facebook Allows Users To Customise Gender On Their Profile


With so many people coming out as Transgender these days Facebook have allowed people to have 'Trans  man' or ‘Trans Female’ with other options on their account.
Facebook engineers have been working on gender transformation to make it more easier for Transgender folk on the social networking site.
Brielle Harrison said the following:
"There's going to be a lot of people for whom this is going to mean nothing, but for the few it does impact, it means the world. All too often transgender people like myself and other gender nonconforming people are given this binary option, 'do you want to be male or female? What is your gender?' And it's kind of disheartening because none of those let us tell others who we really are. This really changes that, and for the first time I get to go to the site and specify to all the people I know what my gender is.” 
This is a massive step forward for Facebook and it’s good that they have decided to do this .
It will help a lot of people and make them feel more comfortable.
