This past Thursday, something changed for zombie apocalypse surviving Facebook users in the U.S.
In a world of ever complicated gender and identity roles, Facebook has taken a large step in allowing it’s users to select from a bevy of new options.
From “transgendered” to “gender fluid” and even “neither”, there are now more than 50 additional options to chose from for those trying to identify their natural self.
Facebook worked with multiple LGBT advocacy groups to develop their new gender categories. They have also tweaked their privacy settings to let individuals control who their customized gender setting can be seen by.
At this time this customization is only available in the U.S., but Facebook has not ruled out expanding the options outside of the U.S.
Many Zombie advocates … ok, one …has thrown his support behind the move by Facebook while expressing his disappointment that the undead have been shown no such consideration.
Dr. Sheamus McMadeupus, Professor of shopping cart studies at his McMadeupus Institute located at the Safeway parking lot on 152nd St. went so far as to say by not including the undead Facebook is actually supporting the continued persecution of the infected. “Facebook is the single most powerful tool in uniting zombie apocalypse survivors and spreading messages of hope and rebirth. It’s also our best chance getting the world to understand these poor misunderstood souls and to turn public opinion away from hunting them, towards more constructive and positive methods of rehabilitation, treatment and my own specialized program I call “Cart Therapy.”
Sadly Dr. McMadeupus was eaten by his freshly turned student assistant/bag boy shortly after this interview and his movement is now deader than the good doctor’s endlessly shuffling corpse.
Other legitimate organizations and advocacy groups have also applauded the move. The one by Facebook, not the eating of people calling themselves professors.
For those survivors in the United States, here is where you can go to learn how to edit your gender status or other personal information. Facebook Help
