Little details: today I landed a change to avoid saying "preferred pronoun" in Facebook UIs in favor of just "pronoun".

Rad! I was the PM on the custom gender feature when it first launched back in 2014...thanks for maintaining it and making it even more inclusive 🤗

Is naming a gender even necessary, once you have the pronoun?

Not for most applications, although many people consider gender an important part of their identity and want to display it on their Facebook profile.

This is great! I always try to encourage people to drop the “preferred.” Really small change in copy but big change in approaching pronouns for people. Thanks for your work.

Love this. Yesterday I was frustrated with because I felt that ‘custom’ as a gender was really impersonal and seemed not the most approach. This one change in copy makes me so happy!

This says 'custom' for the gender field right above.

I wonder in what percent of translation the phrase was actually changed.

Thank you so much for helping with the little things in the wasteland of horrors that the internet is trying to be. (These things really aren't as little as a lot of people think.)
