The exchange that led to Dice’s suspension began with a tweet by Dice on April 10, in which he wrote, “58 different genders wasn’t ‘inclusive’ enough for Facebook, so now instead of picking from a list of options, that section is a ‘fill in the blank.’  The company is embracing mental illness on a massive scale.  #Zuckerberg”.
