So, i was making a google+ account and it said “I am a?” in the drop down list it said male, female, and other. Creepy.
What did you put?
Oddly enough, I recently canceled my google + account. I went to post some pics on my picasa account which I hadn’t used since before I signed on to google +. It looked to me like they wanted to publish way more info than I intended so i canceled it. It was easier than reading all the junk on how to make it more private.
Keep in mind that some of the google stuff is done somewhat tongue-in-cheek. They still pretend to be a fun place.
That last part made me giggle jhb.
There are some in the community who don’t identify as male or female, these include transsexuals, intersex etc. By putting other they’re being inclusive to all people
I’ve got a couple friends who don’t affiliate themselves with a gender, and I wouldn’t be able to put them with one myself. Glad google is asking people.
