[quote=Khan;693234]Not sure what happened, moderators: feel free to move this to a new category.



I find it interesting that I am always assumed to be male unless stated otherwise.

I think it is because your avatars are usually male images . For a long time I thought Meadh was a guy until she had Audrey Hepburn . Whatever your sex is your opinions are valuable and wanted !

Thank you.

I have found that in real life, my opinions have sometimes been devalued when people knew I was female.

My "bovine excrement meter" avatar pretty much sums it up for me.

I read the link Moemg sent on torn cartilage. Knee is slowly getting better, but getting there. I am hoping that I am one who can heal with rest, ice and aspirin.
If this doesn't heal up within another few weeks, it's off to an Orthopedic Dr. But, since it seems to be slowly getting better, my fingers are crossed.

Kahn: Seems to me there are alot of women in Hollywood with more masculine characteristics that are still sexy and feminine (and have kids if they want). Nothing wrong with that one to me.

Also referred to Khan as he in a post--I guessed Genghis Khan as your user name inspiration --

A friend who had knee trouble was also advised to take the heavy duty Ibuprofen (800 mg 3/x a day) to see if it was caused by inflammation and after three weeks her knee was all better. I don't think she did anything else for it in that time.

I have a great deal of empathy for other non-standards: homosexual, bisexual, intersexed, transgendered...

Not sure where I fit on the spectrum.
I never knew that, you always seem like "one of the guys"??
