Variety Is The Spice Of Life

Updated: April 25, 2015 12:49 pm

SATIRICUS IS a mere male. So he merely thought God made just two genders, male and female, with an occasional third. Maybe God thought that was enough. Apparently he did not know variety is the spice of life. So it was left to man—especially the American man—to improve upon God’s deficient work. This he did with first raising the number of genders from two to four—Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT). But did the inventive American stop there? Of course not. For Facebook—

the modern alternative to God—came up with a list of 58 “gender identity options” for its users. Enough is enough, a dazed Satiricus would say. He would be wrong. For now Facebook has offered a 59th option—”Fill in the blank”. Good God! Even God would not have imagined that the man or the woman he created would need 59 ways to say he is neither a man nor a woman.
