FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO DON'T KNOW YET!
I'M A GIRL! NOT A GUY! FOR THE LAST TIME!!! :D

It's happened THREE TIMES today. Not cool, I'm not amused. Do I act like a guy? Is it the soccer ball? The bad breath? What?

3. Not much
But I'm just curious, as to why so many people think I'm a guy?

7. Don't sweat it
I spent two years talking to this guy on various newsgroups and then in email and I finally lost my temper and said something nasty to him. I got a reply saying "all you women are bitches anyway" - which was a hell of a surprise because while I may at times have been bitchy I have never to my knowledge been a woman.

When you deal with someone in a text medium it's very easy to visualize them inaccurately.

The bad breath bit was a low blow. I'm going to go sulk about that one.

18. It's that Slavic "A"
"Khashka."

It throws off your Western Indo-European bretheren and sisteren. "A" always indicates the feminine gender in Western IE languages; not so in the Eastern branch.

They just hate your Slavic A.

8. Most people think I'm a guy
Maybe it's because we don't talk about nail polish?

Stereotypes die hard ya know.

16. Especially since...
...I remember the time when your photo collage got posted to a thread, and lots of Dirty Old Men...I mean males here at DU started publically flirting with you, until you finally had to remind them all that you were only 16.

I would think that no one here would mistake your gender after that exchange...

;-)

9. LOL!
Same happens with me all the time. Actually Boober IS a male name - I made it up for my faithful pooch, but my profile clearly lists me as female.

It doesn't bother me though. It has resulted in a few fun and amusing exchanges here on DU. :D

I got a REAL interesting PM from someone who thought I was a guy a while back - LOL!

Sometimes I sign my name to make it clear ....

10. How would I know?
I try not to imagine too much about any personalities I meet online, because chances are I'll imagine wrong. But it doesn't really matter anyway, does it? To me, you're just another human being who's interested in Democratic politics. A thinking person who is probably smarter than your average American, in other words.

13. *BLATENT THREAD JACK*
The new Black Rebel Motorcycle Club album *continues* to totally ROCK!! :D

Oh, I see, I wasn't supposed to reply to the title, just the post... ;)

I made no assumptions as to your gender, I was just thrilled to know you're a politically conscious young person. But as I happen to know of you indirectly through a good friend who posts here, I knew you were a darlin' little Maggie girl. ;)
