I'm excited to announce that we have updated the list of gender identities to choose from when selecting your gender here on VT. Big thanks to StoppingTime for creating these new symbols for us. The list of all the options will be as followed:

Agender http://virtualteen.org/forums/images/styles/fblue/misc/Agender.gif
Someone who is genderless; having no gender.
Bigender http://virtualteen.org/forums/images/styles/fblue/misc/Bigender.gif
Identifying as both genders in some capacity, i.e., switching between the two, being some combination of both at the same time, etc.
Cisgender male http://virtualteen.org/forums/images/styles/fblue/misc/Male.gif
A biological male (i.e., XY chromosomes, has a penis, etc., your standard male) whose gender identity and expression matches their sex. In layman's terms, this is your commonplace boy/male/man, it's just a little more specific (and the "cisgender" acknowledges the existence of other genders, so this may be seen as a little more respectful to anyone who is non-binary).
Cisgender female http://virtualteen.org/forums/images/styles/fblue/misc/Female.gif
A biological female (i.e., XX chromosomes, has a vagina, etc., your standard female) whose gender identity and expression matches their sex. In layman's terms, this is your commonplace girl/female/woman, it's just a little more specific (and the "cisgender" acknowledges the existence of other genders, so this may be seen as a little more respectful to anyone who is non-binary).
Gender queer http://virtualteen.org/forums/images/styles/fblue/misc/Gender%20Queer.gif
A catchall term for someone who doesn't fit the traditional definitions/depictions of gender; someone who doesn't fit the gender binary; non-binary
Gender questioning http://virtualteen.org/forums/images/styles/fblue/misc/Gender%20Questioning.gif
Someone who is in the process of exploring and questioning their gender identity
Neutral http://virtualteen.org/forums/images/styles/fblue/misc/Other.gif
Someone who avoids traditional standards/definitions of gender and does not label themselves one way or another
Other http://virtualteen.org/forums/images/styles/fblue/misc/Other.gif
Someone who identifies as a gender not listed here.
Pangender http://virtualteen.org/forums/images/styles/fblue/misc/Pangender.gif
Someone who identifies as all genders; non-binary; not defined as male or female
Transgender MtF https://i.imgur.com/OT0AJb2.png
MtF: male to female; a biological male whose gender identity is female. They may still be keeping this a secret, transitioning to living their lives as female, or they may already be comfortably living as a female. Transgender generally means that they've had no surgery (yet, at least) to change their biological sex
Transgender FtM https://i.imgur.com/OT0AJb2.png
