Facebook Welcomes Transgender Community to its Social Pages

Facebook has taken a truly revolutionary step. It has decided to welcome on board the transgender community members. And all those hate-mongers who took part in gay-bashing will be automatically deleted from its social pages.

Facebook Welcomes Transgender Community to its Social Pages

Facebook Welcomes Transgender Community to its Social Pages
Facebook

The rising expectations in matters of human rights still have a long way to go. Seeing the changing times, when greater tolerance and more equality are the order of the day, Facebook has expanded the gender options it offers to its user base. 

Instead of the standard “male” or “female” slots, now there will be other categories to boot. These include “cisgender”, “gay”, “lesbian”, “transgender” and “other”. Thus the segregation of the sexes according to rigid sacred cow rules has become a thing of the past. 

Facebook undertook this effort in synch with GLAAD. The Vice President of GLAAD, Rich Ferraro has been closely working with Facebook to make this monumental achievement possible for the LGBT community

The array of choices that will be laid out before the user is ten in number. They run the gamut from the different to the radically different. 

Mark Zuckerberg had already done a thorough cleanup of his social network as far as hate speech and anti-feminist stuff was concerned. Now with the opening up of the cyberspace connections to the gay and lesbian groups, the subculture has been absorbed into the dominant culture. 

The process of registering as a “male” or “female” or “whatsoever rocks your boat” is fairly simple. Facebook deserves two thumbs up for its gender sensitivity!

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
