Almost three years ago I wrote a post in which I expressed disgust that some dopey commission determined that there were twenty-three (23) genders. I ended the post by predicting that some other cockamamie organization might cough up new "genders". When I'm correct, I am correct with a bang!
Now it seems that there are fifty (50!) of these "genders"! At least there are, according to Facebook! When one signs up for a Facebook account, that little gender drop-down box doesn't indicate merely "male" or "female". One can select among the fifty suggested offerings. For good measure, an applicant can dream up another; yes, Facebook allows for that - all in the name of "diversity" of course! Heaven only knows the precise definitions of these "genders", and how these politically-correct and common-sense-challenged individuals differentiate among them.
Probably in a year or two, the Facebook list will be obsolete. And they'll happily keep adding to the list - and confusion - no doubt.
