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?
Everyone is special in their own way. We make each other strong (we make each other strong.) We're not the same. We're different in a good way. Together's where we belong. We're all in this together. Once we know. That we are. We're all stars. And we see that. We're all in this together. And it shows. When we stand. Hand in hand. Make our dreams come true.

    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.
