Genders “IDs”: What do they mean, and what do they reveal?

Anyone who’s out in the world of dating has signed up for dating sites or may just want to understand gender identities and roles in 2022 has likely recognized that there are more than a few options to choose from when one identifies by gender.

On a recent trip, I talked at length with a friend of mine and confided I am unsure what it all means. It’s not that I am unaware…it’s just that on Bumble alone, there were several screenshots of the options, and thought “How do people navigate this when they are not aware of who or what I am?”

So, here’s my attempt at trying to explain and help anyone and everyone, to make it clear, what these options mean beyond general male or female.

This is certainly not the be-all, end-all of gender identity recaps, so please feel free to let us know if you have further input, info, or whatever, and we’ll be more than happy to update and/or add them to this blog. Rest assured, here at DD we strongly believe education about genders is critically important in today’s world and ALL people should be accepted and respected, no matter their gender identity.
