Which has happened to you more often, thinking a male SoH participant in a female or thinking that a female is a male?

I get called "he" and "him" a lot, even though I have a profile picture that should make it pretty clear.

There are no girls on the internet. Everyone is an overweight sweaty 30 yr old man living in his mothers basement.

I doubt anyone was confused by me... I've always had a picture of myself up lol.

If the gender isn't obvious, I assume male. There are just more males here, so it's the safer guess.

I haven't really spent much time thinking about it although I can generally deduce gender based on responses over time.

I thought xercesblue was a male because she always used "yessir" and "nosir".

No. Generally speaking, females are smart.

I did. He told me wasn't in a reply. I just thought that because of his name.

I didn't have one up for a long time. Until I put one up, I think EVERYONE thought I was a guy.

Now, everyone who just looks at my picture thinks I'm 15. Nothing I can do about that, though.

Violence, I always thought you were a girl. A very aggressive girl. Glad I was right.

Thinking a male is female has happened twice with me. I don't recall any times thinking a female was male.

Of course, this is representations since nobody can really be proven as anyone.

Lol I did too for the longest time and was totally shocked when I found out.

But the main thing that I can't figure out about that is WHY did I think that for the longest time. No clue!

Interesting, somehow I always assumed that rlands was female.

10/19/13 5:12 pm

Honestly I always knew rlands was a girl by reading her conversations with MrLucchese. You can sometimes tell in a conversation when it is two people of the same gender talking vs two people of different genders...

Well Hayley it also might be because you only started commenting like a month ago! Lol

Everyone started figuring out in March once she started posting user polls. But before that I had no clue.

10/19/13 5:22 pm

I'm sorry I confused people haha, I honestly didn't mean to at all! But I think it's interesting when people just assume so much about a person based on minimal details. I do it all the time too, it's just interesting how it plays out sometimes.

Always that a female is a male. I've also thought a few people were gay that really weren't.
To top it off, I thought MilkDud was black until he recently posted his pic.
