Interesting story (to me at least). On another forum I used to be active in, a member had an avatar picture of what looked like an angry young African-American gangsta, and his handle was Chuck D. He was prolific and his views very thoughtful, well reasoned and well written. Along with others I debated him often, being very sensitive to his apparent culture and background. After months of this, he'd PM'd me to thank me for an exchange we had, and confessed that he was a 40-something well-to-do white guy in Detroit. Talk about confusing - and hilarious!

That's interesting! I thought maybe she was a family member. She is beautiful.

Even more so inside IMO, and she's a little older now...

Remember reading somewhere that from looking at one's handwriting, it's difficult to determine if the author is a she or he. I suppose the same with typed words too.

But then again, only a couple of members on this forum know my true gender.



btw, I was under the assumption Midpack's avatar was his wife.

I'm pretty sure mine is a she. I don't know what size shoes she wears.

Despite the long hair mine is a 'he'. In fact, he's a grown-up version of the one attempting to ruin a family wedding by strangling his sister.

My avatar has no gender. And it likes to do people in, too!
