    I think the character that is displayed after the gender is revealed relates to how I respond. There are some here I want to be nice to and there are others I have little or no respect for now.

    I voted no. Sometimes for the heck of it I make a smart-assed comment, but I do that regardless of the sex of the poster.

    Most of the time, I surf using my phone. Part of the reason that I rarely post. While surfing, I expand the thread to read it better and the poster is off the screen. I very rarely ever know to whom I am responding.
    As a dreamer of dreams and a travellin' man, I have chalked up many a mile.
    Read dozens of books about heroes and crooks and I've learned much from both of their styles!

    Here? No. In real life, yes, I change the responses per social custom.

And then I shall volunteer to go where ever is the opposite of where such ambassadors as you go.

    I'm not here as an ambassador or as a prophet. The Spirituality I believe in does not promote such things.

    Its way more than genitals. At the same time I think people are self-deceived when they think other characteristics of masculinity and/or femininity are culturally imposed. The effects of testosterone on male behavior, personality traits and attitudes for example, has little to do with what societal expectations "impose" on men. I believe the nurturing tendency of female personalty in as innate in human beings as it is in eagles. Likewise, I believe male leadership of the family unit is as instinctive in humans as in a pride of lions in the wild, barring some familial dysfunction that although relatively common is still a dysfunction and likely also leads to systemic problems in society in general.

    If the questions were "Do you have a penis?" or "When was the last time you menstruated?" , then yes, I do imagine the answers would vary between genders.
    Either I'm right or you're wrong.

    For an extended discussion list the reasons why?
    Nope.Its not something I pay attention to.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    I never do. I'm the ultimate bastion of equality.

    I treat a woman the way I'd treat a man - for weal or woe.

    I also tend to disrespect people who don't give a gender, because I find them to be so disingenuous. If I think you're a female that doesn't admit to being female because you think "your opinion will carry less merit"...you're probably right, although for not the reason you think.
