      The new gender choices

      I think the new gender choices are awful. A transgender person, especially a fully transitioned one, may not wish to disclose such information right away. It can lead to a lot of unnecessary attention from creepy people or worse yet, people who have less than noble intentions when meeting. The danger is very real in many parts of the United States and the rest of the world, especially for trans people of color.

      The only choice for such a person now is to either lie or risk exposing themselves to such dangers, both of which are unacceptable. The gender choices should be:

      * Male
      * Female
      * Other

      You may have a text box underneath in which you can enter specifics if you prefer to specify your gender when selecting "Other", or if you wish to further specify that you are a cis- or transgender person of the specified gender.

      A third option is of course not to use the site at all, which would be a shame, as it is an excellent website for meeting interesting people. I also believe the site owners would not want to exclude anyone, and had the best intentions in mind when adding the current gender choices. It is easy to overlook something like this if you have no personal experience, but I do hope this gets rectified soon.

      In the world of luxury watches, is making headlines. In the past week, the company has announced the opening of a new boutique, as well as the revamping of one of its most famous watches.
