not necessarily a "forum" but i didn't know anywhere else to post this and i haven't been able to find anyone talking about this before. if this is the wrong place for it i apologize.
i'd like to ask for more options for "gender" in our profiles. right now the only three options are: male, female, transgender, which leaves out nonbinary people (like myself) or agender people. also, because "transgender" isn't a gender but a label, it shouldn't be an option. while a nb person is technically a part of the trans community as they are "transitioning" from their birth gender, many do not personally identify with it. a trans man or woman should only need to chose the gender they identify with instead of labelling their gender as "transgender" (however, i do not identify as trans so i cannot speak for any trans person, but i asked my trans friends in order to come to this conclusion). transgender, like cisgender, is a descriptor- a modifier onto the gender that a person identifies with, not their actual gender. nobody says that their gender is transgender. they are a transgender man (ftm), or a cis man (amab).
i know there's also a "null" sort of option that doesn't list any gender on your profile, but i'd love to see an inclusion of a simple "other" option for gender. i absolutely cannot speak for every trans or nonbinary person and if anyone would like to add on to this i'd be open to discussion!
