    Not sure "other" comes off as inclusive. I like what Facebook does: lets users choose a custom gender and then let's the user choose a pronoun (him, her, them).

      It's commendable what FB did but I had a nonbinary friend mention how if you're new to FB, you have to actually choose a binary gender first (http://imgur.com/a/FX3Ne) before you're able to have a custom gender.

      This seems to defeat the whole purpose since for NB folks like my friend, it felt like it wasn't a true choice. "You had to choose your 'real' gender (and that's what the system really sees you as)" versus actually respecting that you don't correspond with either genders.
