Re: What! You're a boy/girl?!?

There are still a couple of folks that im like "is that a dude or a lady?" But overall it doesnt matter.

Some people thought i was a guy for a long time. I have masculine usernames sometimes.

Re: What! You're a boy/girl?!?

I thought SuperDecimal was female and I thought that Red was female. Other than that, most of the time, I am pretty good at guessing.

I remember so many people were in shock after seeing a video I posted in the Scrapbook that I was male because I had the female sign next to my name, and most of the time I acted pretty genderless. I received a ton of VMs about it.

Re: What! You're a boy/girl?!?

I'm usually pretty good with guessing the sexes of other members. The only person that has thrown me off was Calypso. I spent years thinking she was a guy.

Re: What! You're a boy/girl?!?

I've honestly never had any problems with this. I don't make assumptions about people's genders, so I never get surprised when my assumptions turn out wrong.

Re: What! You're a boy/girl?!?

I don't recall instances of people assuming my gender incorrectly, but then, I tend to think it doesn't matter what peoples' genders are, most of the time.


As for me having the confusion, it's happened before. Jason, for instance, was originally GoldenChaos with Medli everything for his avatar/sig/etc, and was assumed to be a girl by basically everybody for a while. I'm pretty sure that included me, but as I said, I don't think it matters much (and I've held that opinion for a long time), so the "oh gosh, my assumption was wrong!" moment doesn't stick out strongly.

Re: What! You're a boy/girl?!?

when I joined I tried to stay ambiguous, but just now Ive started using the female badge in my user bar, I'm sick of being in the closet as a transgender girl and so Im coming out, so there. As for other users, I can usually figure the gender unless they are good at not hinting at it by responses/actions. Personally I really don't think it matters what they are as long as people are comfortable with it. Now, ive been on some forums where you'd think everyone was an amoeba, the users give no possible clue to determine gender. But, like I said, as long as someone is comfortable as a certain gender, I'll regard them as that gender.

Re: What! You're a boy/girl?!?

I never really thought about it.

When we discussed adding the gender symbol beside the name, I was like "..why?" I'm not opposed to it, but I find it pointless. However, since most people prefer to have it, no quarrells!

I guess it's helpful so people know which pronoun to use.. but pronouns are stupid!

Huh... I never knew you were female. Ok then.

I'm male though. 100% male. Although I believe that it was already quite obvious.

boy/man =

So it confuses me to no end when someone who is male has a girl's/woman's symbol and when someone who is female has a boy's/man's symbol.

Sex and gender distinctions and terminology are too complex. T_T
the easiest way to get over this confusion is to stop trying to force your perceptions on other people and just accept that if someone says they're a woman or if someone says they're a man then they are, regardless of what they look or act like to you. They should know their own identity better than you or anyone else.

it's common for cisgendered people to not easily distinguish between sex and gender, because at least in their case both are the same thing (that's what "cisgendered" means, by the way). But for many people, collectively known as transgendered people, sex and gender are two very different things, often with very little relation. A woman is a woman and a man is a man, regardless of their genitals. A person's sexual organs and the private parts of their body are nobody's business but their own.

I'm still not sure what the facts are on Lysis (no offense intended, Lysis), but my first assumption was female. Then I saw discussion of trans issues, and I'm no longer sure if we're talking sex change here, or just psychological association (i.e. "I am what society associates with the opposite sex"), the latter of which is what I consider gender or gender identity. Apologies if any of my wording was offensive, Lysis... it's just that I'm rather new to thinking about trans issues.
in my case, I don't associate with any gender. That is, I would say that I am neither male nor female.

Re: What! You're a boy/girl?!?

Back when I was Rose De Nose I'm pretty sure I recall someone remarking their surprise that I male. And of course, I've mistaken people's genders on here.

I'm pretty much this.

I may be a female physically, but I like to associate myself as being neither gender.

Re: What! You're a boy/girl?!?

Early in my internet career people on forums seemed to think that I was a girl. I don't think the same applies now, but who knows.

I think I thought Eternal Legend was male at first, like so many others. I can't really think of any horrible mistakes :p

Re: What! You're a boy/girl?!?

Well, I didn't know EL was a female. I really looked like a fool. I base gender off the avatar of the user. When I joined ZU, I assumed that all the people here were girls. I was wrong.
