    Oh, I don't know! At least I'd be able to pee standing up, and walk around topless without people staring!

    Don't be too sure of that. When I walk around topless, people stare, (but it's not in lust or admiration).

    It doesn't matter in this forum; it's the answers that are important. The only time it crops up at all is if we refer to a member by a third person pronoun. If the name doesn't make the gender clear (as in Bob, Verona), Some of us use s/he (she/he); others use they; others still make a guess, and sometimes get it wrong. Nobody is offended.

    Absolutely right. I normally take no notice if I'm referred to as male, but occasionally if I have answered and someone posts "Thank you sir", for some reason, I feel obliged to put them right. I don't know why, but I'm certainly not offended.

    It's interesting though, that most students will assume that a teacher is male unless their name makes it clear otherwise.
