Fans touched by LOOΠΔ's inclusion of 'non-binary' as a gender on their U.S. promotion page


Earlier today, girl group LOOΠΔ launched a website to gear up for their official U.S. promotions

The website offered fans a chance to sign up for text message updates from LOOΠΔ. The simple process required fans to fill out a profile including their mobile phone numbers, name, gender, etc. 

While filling out the profile form, fans discovered that the page had included "Non-binary" as a gender identity in the form category:

Many fans were touched by the simple, but meaningful gesture, as often times individuals who define themselves as "non-binary" are denominated as "others"

(Non-binary is a gender indentity which falls outside masculine and feminine genders. Non-binary identities can be seen as transgenders since they don't identify with their assigned sex.)

This is not the first time LOOΠΔ has garnered attention for their themes of LGBT+ topics - Yves claimed they were grateful to see fans who find a positive light in the story between Chuu and her in LOONA's videography as a LGBT+ narrative, confirmed the song "Rosy" by Olivie Hye and Go Won is about two girls' love, and more. 

Netizens commented: "I'm non-binary and I feel cared for, thanks", "It's such a small move but it means so much for so many people", "I'm gonna cry of joy, it really means a lot to me", "People are still living in 2020 while LOOΠΔ live in the future", etc. 

Have you signed up to receive promotion updates from LOOΠΔ?

LoonA's message to ignorant people:
"We don't want you as fans, take your ignorance and bounce."

The people in the comments are mixing up “sex” with “gender”. There are only 2 sexes; male, female (I guess there’s a third if you count intersex). Gender is a social norm. It is commonly associated that men like blue and cars while women like pink and dolls. Being non-binary just means that you don’t identify with those stereotypes. So yes, no matter what you say there are more than 2 social genders. Hope that cleared stuff up
