How do you design a survey with an option where users are able to add other (specify)?

How do you add an option to manually write a name that is not included in the dropdown on an xls. for instance, Gender has male and female as dropdown, however, you want people to able to type in whatever they think of themselves as an additional option

You can use other (specify) as 3. choice and (if really necessary?) add an additional text variable with relevant filter.
You can find similar examples by using the search function in this forum and have a look at the support article
