Serious problems with their gender

    o:) ---->(gender: female)

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------
    What do you think if those of us who have no serious problems with their gender, could specify that?
    Personally I think these things aren't notable esp. in a science forum ( I tend to choose other UNs in other forum that my gender couldn't be known by them, but since we get to know each other in personal levels, I choose this 1 here), but sometimes members PM me and ask whether I'm female or not!:bugeye: :grumpy:(Note my name is a name of a girl as far as I know:tongue: )
    I myself thought Moonbear is a male before seeing her photo!:blushing: Member photo thread couldn't help all the time since 1. all members don't post their picture. 2. Sometimes you can't recognize someone's gender by the picture:tongue:

    Advantage:
    1. Statistics of the forum.
    2. Gettig rid of s/he, wo/man

    Disadvantage:
    1. you know how wo/man are like!
    2. we can't have fun like past ( that's funny when you called a man "she" and he got angry):rolleyes:
    3. It could cause a big mess in the forum!:tongue2:

    PS I don't think it would be a good suggestion, but hey who cares?:zzz:

    I can imagine seeing a registration form like this:

    Check all that apply

    __ Male

    __ Female

    __ Neither

    __ None of the above


    and watching the philosophers implode! ;)

    Ha Ha

    I'm really not though, because Spencer Davis was doing their thing before I was born. I think that 60's music is the best, despite the fact that I was born in 72.

    :rofl: It's not nice teasing the philosophers like that. :rofl: And you forgot "both." We can't discriminate against the hermaphrodites.

    Moonbear,

    That's covered by "check ALL that apply!" :)

    Obviously, she's taken a great deal of math.:smile:

    Since I'm here - like you, Lisa, my name pretty much communicates my gender, and people still sometimes don't get it. I don't really care one way or the other. If someone asks, I tell them. It's a little irritating when they decide not to believe me, because Heaven knows women don't know math or science or ever use the Internet, but it's low on my list of things to worry about.
