And the only options are Male or Female.
I am not impressed. ...
wow, whole lot of cissexist bullshit going on in this thread.

yeah, I'm nonbinary too, and the lack of nonbinary gender options for things like this - especially on a site like ef - is exasperating.

I'm binary male and I am honestly appalled at the response to this thread.

Regardless of what the user posted, they are a customer, and should be dealt with appropriately. This is not being dealt with appropriately or professionally. The customer/contributor was upset - the correct response is, "How can we make this better for you?" regardless of whether or not they offered a suggestion. Ask how you can help, and then let them think on it.

As we found, there was a way to help - offer the "other" option. But after my five years of being here, seeing such a response is quite tragic.

I am saddened by this, deeply saddened, especially given that this is a sex-positive website and store. I should have known when Eden changed back to "women" and "men" options on their Shop header and hid "gender-friendly" under "Couples." I'm just upset, truly, that such a thread was responded to in such a manner, and no one cared to report the person who basically silenced the original poster's concerns.

Sincerely,
Sir

I think that they should also have a third option...like gender queer

I don't feel like they need these options, as trans people make up such a small minority of the population. They're just doing this for marketing reasons. They want to know what kinds of products they should be focusing on.
