Do you have a non gender specific picture and username? If so, are you sure that your followers know if you are male or female? I had a shock yesterday when I called a he a she. Would you put up a poll seeing if your followers know what sex you are?

If they don't know...

Although I still get some confused people. I'm pretty sure I've had a few pictures of myself on here.

I have a non-specific username and pic and I like it that way. I'd rather be judged by the content of my writing than the number of Y chromosomes I possess.

Interesting question. I have never thought of myself as very attractive so it makes me feel good when other people see me as attractive. I do hope that most of it is related to the personality I have here as it mirrors my real life personality....

I had a very abusive ex-husband who made it easier for me to see myself as unattractive then to admit that there was any possibility that anyone would pick up on me. I guess having people notice me as attractive is rebuilding lost self-confidence...

TP, I've always said that long hair on a woman is very sexy. I love it.

Your Ex is a lesser person. We aren't all like that. You are quite attractive.

I think my user name is obvious enough that it's not worth a poll about it.

However, just because a user has a sex-specific name or photo, that doesn't mean that they actually are that of that sex. Probably almost all really are, though.

I won't put up a poll because I have a female screen name. If they can't figure that out, well...I can't help 'em. Cool idea for those who aren't so obvious though.
