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 a fruit loop. 🍊➰

There's a part of me I can't get back.  A little girl grew up too fast. All it took was once. I'll never be the same.

    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? 
    but idk tho

    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.
