OkCupid & Facebook adds 50 gender options & 12 sexual orientations??? - January 11, 2016, 06:33 PM

Huh??? What??? This is what you get for reading up on CNN.

The settings that most members see allowed them to choose "gay," "straight" or "bisexual" as their sexual orientation. A screen shot on NewNowNext of the expanded options includes asexual, pansexual, questioning, demisexual, heteroflexible, homoflexible and sapiosexual.
Even more expansive are changes to gender, which used to be limited to man or woman. Now, the site offers 20 more options, including agender, cis man, non-binary and others.

Earlier this year, Facebook added a third "custom" gender option for people's profiles. In addition to male or female, Facebook now lets U.S. users choose among some 50 additional options such as "transgender," "cisgender," "gender fluid," "intersex" and "neither." Users also now have the ability to choose the pronoun they'd like to be referred to publicly: he/his, she/her, or the gender-neutral they/their.

OkCupid adds feature for polyamorous users - CNN.com

It also led to this, and I am like WTF???
