Facebook with 58 Gender Options

Besides male and female gender in your facebook account you can also see another option to choose custom probably for the members who preferred the opposite gender on their profile. But that was before, now that LGBT or Lesbian Gay Bisexual and Transgender are now given an equal right with a growing number of countries supporting their right to get married, now Facebook is also stepping to support them with their chosen gender.

Not 2 or 3 but 58 genders to be chosen which you can see below:

Agender
Androgyne
Androgynous

Cis

Cis Female
Cis Male
Cis Man
Cis Woman

I can’t understand other gender labels here and why they come up with so many numbers to tell a gender of a person isn't it too much and overkill to express your gender with the following options. I also wonder if anyone will be brave enough to boast these genders to be seen by their friends, and get some exposure on their newsfeed which tickle the mind of their friends, by commenting and liking.

Meanwhile, LGBT community should be happy with this news as they also have been recognized by the management and software engineer of Facebook.

So what’s your take on this, is it too much or just right?
