See, I wasn't angry about the gender assumption. I was genuinely curious because I've been on here long enough to have noticed that happen with others, at least not that I had seen, and I really wanted to know if it was my name (which I find rather funny because I sure hope everyone here knows what crochet is) or if was the WAY I talked or WHAT I said. That's all.
As for the name change, again, I had not seen that done to anyone else before and I've already said it, so you know where I stand on that one.
Oh well. Maybe I just won't get an answer on this one. Not going to ruin my day. Just leaves me curious.
But, I do find it interesting that for some reason people need to put an unknown person into a gender category. I hadn't even noticed the little gender symbol by the name before until this conversation had progressed. Do some on here also assume a person's skin color, or sexual preference, or any number of other irrelevant things?
