    Re: Male, female or 'custom'? Facebook announces 50 ways to define gender

    Look at your birth certificate. Does it say M or F? 2 genders, 2 options. This is nothing but hyper-wordy pandering. It's Facebook, Facebook is private and hardly some kind of serious thing, but it's just stupid to have 50+ "gender" choices.

    According to the Left, Conservatives are either racists, bigots or both. That pretty much covers everything.

    Why should anyone care? It's none of your business. Maybe it's silly, hell a lot of it seems silly to me. But those who are really obviously bothered by this are only exposing the fact that they are on the losing side of a culture war. It may be weird to you but this is part of the future.

    It must be nice that life has become so easy that so many people have so much time to waste on things like this.

    Not hard but places extra strain on databases and computing power.

    People at facebook are paid to do things like this. Facebook doesnt call it a waste, they call it business. Im sorry that Facebooks business bothers you.

    The people at facebook laugh at your lack of business sense.
