"Hen" gender-neutral pronoun now an option on Swedish Facebook

The Swedish gender-neutral pronoun "hen" is now available for Swedish Facebook users, when they choose a gender for their profile.

Previously alternatives other than male or female were only possible with the language setting of U.S. English. Now Facebook has made this possible in Swedish as well.

There are 70 different gender identifications from which to choose now. The list of proposals was developed by RFSL, the Swedish Federation for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Rights.
