Google is adding custom gender options to Google+

39 sec read

Facebook gave its gender non-conforming users a better way to express themselves early in the year, and now it’s Google’s turn. An update to Google+ rolling out over the next few days will let you type in a custom gender for your social networking profile instead of having to settle for “other,” you won’t have to constantly explain yourself just because you don’t fit into the male/female binary. 

Google has announced a new update to the profile editor on Google+ which introduces a new “custom” gender option. Rather than take the Facebook approach and present a long list of options, however, the setting instead shows a free-form text box and allows the user to type in anything they want. A second field below that allows users to select a personal pronoun, with options for masculine, feminine, or non-specific settings. The old option to choose who can and can’t see the gender information listed on your profile will remain as well. The update isn’t live for all users just yet, but Google says it will be rolled out “over the next few days.”
