It's always my natural assumption that everyone on msg boards are male, because otherwise they'd be in the kitchen or off doing laundry or something. Happy new years everyone!

Careful . . . I might be an easily-offended, Liberal snowflake.

Happy New Year to you, too.

Screen names can throw you. When I first saw the name "Spencgr" I thought "GRRRR"--which to my mind is a stereotypically male sound--plus "Spencer for Hire." When I first saw "ACWhite," my mind went to men in history who are known by their first initials--e.g., EB White, WEB DuBois, DW Griffith, EM Forster, PT Barnum--and at first pictured an elderly man. (Sorry!) And untill JK Rowling came along, there were almost no women who went by their initials. And now there's SE Cupp, so the genie is out of the bottle. ICS67--no clue. Dudes seem to like numbers, though.

When I first saw "Bigfoot," I thought of a lady with super-tall high-heels.
