Google+, not Facebook, has just become the best place for people to express their gender identities.
“For many people, gender identity is more complex than just “male” or “female.” Starting today, I’m proud to announce that Google+ will support an infinite number of ways to express gender identity, by giving you the option to customize the way your gender is represented on your profile,” announces Google+’s Rachael Bennett.
Until now, Google+ simply offered options for male, female, and other. The new system lets users select custom, after which they’ll be prompted to enter in their own gender. It’s completely freeform and allows user to type anything they want.
Facebook, a longtime friend of the transgender community, expanded its gender options back in February. The company added “Transexual Man,” “Trans Woman,” “Cisgender,” and more – about a dozen new options in all.
But now it’s Google+, with its completely customizable gender options, is the best top social network around for people with untraditional gender identities.
