    Absolutely, yes. Obviously the devil's in the details, but a person's gender will influence the tone of my interactions with them. With known female posters I'm generally more polite and sometimes flirtatious. That doesn't mean that I'm going to give a woman a free pass to say something stupid or awful, but it does mean that they'll probably get more leeway.

    I think most people interact differently with members of the opposite sex than they do with members of their own (consciously or otherwise). We're also pretty generally much harder on our own gender (at least men are - with women it seems to be more complicated, as per usual).

    I'm thankful that there are a few other women on DP! Why do politics seem to involve men more? Women vote, too. Are we more secretive about what we think?

    In know this is a generalization by I think fewer women care as much about politics than men. As much as the current PC culture would like us to think there are no differences between men and women, I do not agree. One such difference (in general) is the level of interest in politics/current events/issues. This is why more men watch news channels and more women watch the Lifetime Network and Dancing With the Stars. Its based on their own interests and lack of interests.

    That's really irrelevant from my perspective and where I come from here - I don't debate people, I debate ideas - I agree with or challenge ideas, not the people promoting them. Do they come from different perspectives, based on gender? Sometimes - particularly on the abortion threads, as an example. But that doesn't matter to me - it's not why I'm here.

    When I respond to a poster, I'm addressing their mind, not their genitals.
    I try to be more polite if I know I am dealing with a woman.

    For years I didn't post my gender symbol and it was automatically assumed that I was male. Then when I did put the gender symbol I noticed a considerable difference in the way I was talked to....or should I say down to?

    Depends on whether or not I like them. I will hold my antagonistic tongue when MaggieD for example says something I disagree with, and try to be tactful.

    Other females I don't respect, like Moot, get the full wrath.

    Nope, I rarely even pay attention to someone's gender.

    Not intended to frighten, simply inform. That way you can't claim ignorance when you stand before your Maker.
