The Big Apple's 31-derful Genders Shake Down

Woe betide any NYC business that doesn't acknowledge every single one of these permutations, because it could end up costing it--big time (my bolds):
New York City is investigating 31 cases of gender identity discrimination under the city’s Human Rights Law, which prohibits acts of discrimination such as misusing a person’s gender pronouns, a spokesperson for the city’s Commission On Human Rights told The Daily Caller. 
The city did not elaborate on any of the case specifics. As reported by TheDC three months ago, individuals living in New York City can choose from a minimum of 31 different gender identities, many of which allow the person to fluctuate between some version or combination of male or female identities.

Businesses that don’t respect and accommodate an individual’s chosen gender identity risk incurring six-figure fines under rules implemented by the city’s Commission on Human Rights. One of the aspects of respecting an individual’s gender identity is using their preferred pronouns, even if they prefer gender neutral pronouns like “ze.” Businesses found in violation of the law face up a fine of up to $250,000.
I fluctuate between some version or combination of Jamoca Almond Fudge and Gold Medal Ribbon.

But, hey, that's just me.

Update: In case you were wondering...:

"Woman"? "Man"? What are those two doing there?
