    Of course but it depends on how much I know the person also. At first I address the mind but the gender is in the mind also. Things are perceived and thought of differently. Then I switch to gender specific responses.

    But this is not always. When I know I am right and they are wrong I do tend to respond to a woman as if she was a man. This is rarely though.

    Yeah, I agree. Mostly when it comes to certain issues *cough abortion/gay marriage cough*.

    In real life I probably do, but online I don't think I respond to women and men differently. At least I haven't caught myself doing it.

    Exactly. I sometimes name female users here like "You go girl!" Tell that to one of us here in a serious non joking manner and the one calling such names would probably be reported to mods for trolling.

    I flirt with fewer men than women, so I guess I'd have to say yes.

    In a political discussion I try my best to ignore the sex in a political discussion. In a social one I revert back to my upbringing, though I have rip into females from time to time.

    An ass is an ass, now matter what's up in front.

    When I first joined DP I didn't make my sex/gender clear immediately because I didn't want to be judged based on whether I was a male or female. It didn't last long because as I've mentioned in the past I'm a little bit sexist, I love being female (sex/gender) and I think it would suck to be a guy so not declaring that I'm female was too much for me.

    The poll question I have for you is:

    Do you respond differently if you know whether the person you're responding to is a guy or a girl?

    For an extended discussion list the reasons why?
    When I respond to a post I rarely look at the sidebar where it lists peoples gender. The times that I do is normally when I want to respond to a post talking about another poster and I want to make sure that I am not call a woman/guy a guy/woman. Which usually involves me having to go and look up the poster in question past posts just to see their gender. Its more of a courtesy thing for me when I do that. Otherwise it makes no difference on how I post.

    No - at least I don't think so.

    I suspect men are more likely to factor in the person's gender, but not always. It is probably more likely that some of the ones who are my age or close to it are more likely to speak more civilly to women because of the way they were brought up.

    it may be true of some younger ones too, but probably less so.

    I'm not sure and if so it wouldn't be intentional. I tend to like men and get along better with them more than women, or at least in most cases. I'm also single and heterosexual, so I like to flirt with the guys sometimes.

    I've seen a difference between responses depending on the gender of the parties involved, on both sides of the gender fence.

    I prefer my post to be read for themselves, regardless of my gender, and responded to in the same manner.

    Though many on here know my gender by now, I don't usually clarify it by putting in my profile.
    Building block or stumbling block.... choose.
