What Genders Are There?

Probably sounds really silly but earlier at school during computing we were having an argument about what Genders there are (we were doing a database table and we had to put in something about gender.) Please can people help me to clarify that there is not just male, female and transgender?
I'm sick of covering up.
I'm tired of feeling so broken.
I'm tired of falling in love.
Sometimes I'm shy and I'm anxious. Sometimes I'm down on my knees. 
So I won't wear makeup on Thursday.
Cause who I am is enough.
And there are many things that I could change so slightly.
But why would I succumb to something so unlike me?
I was always taught to just be myself. 
Don't change for anyone.

    There are lots of genders (gender is the social construct, sex is the bodyparts), it might help for convenience for your database Kasa to have female male and other/non-binary or something like that?

    It's also worth noting that 'transgender' isn't a gender as such. Someone can transition from (for example) male to female, but they may still prefer to be labelled as 'female'. Transgender is a label people can identify with but folks may not be comfortable calling that their gender, if that makes sense?

    Speaking from a cisgender perspective so if anyone wants to correct me there, please do!
    All behaviour is a need trying to be met.
