---->(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! :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! 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:

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

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)
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:

Peraps it's only me who thinks it's not good suggestion. Let's get other people ideas anyway.

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! ;)

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!" :)

It seems that most of people around here have serious problems with their gender!

Are you drunk or just kidding?:tongue2:

$$2005 -1972 = 33$$

$$-10 +33 = 23$$

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

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.

Hey, a lot of people seemed to think I was a woman back when I had a female avatar.

It doesn't help when they abbreviate your nickname to LYN either! :tongue:

Sometimes I think I shouldn't have chosen this username.

I can't wait to see how you fill out a tax return.

Actually, until I pulled up the quote again, I didn't see the '-' sign. My eyes aren't that great sometimes.

I'm pretty sure that it's a Spencer Davis original with Steve Winwood as lead vocalist.

No, your eyes are only great for evil!:tongue2:

Again, nobody is going to tell me what s/he thinks of this suggestion? :surprised

I'm sorry, Lisa, I thought I'd answered that, but I guess I didn't. I don't see anything wrong with your suggestion, but it's just not something I would care that much about. If I were in charge of the board, I'd probably implement it on your request, but I doubt I'd use it. *sorry*
