I used to change genders depending on what theme I was and what gender the person in my theme was. Not to genderbend but just to match the theme as a whole. The only thing I didn't change would have been my location since it's been the same since I joined. But now I'm just not listed (... I don't think I am. I don't have gender being listed in the postbit) because ... i'm not sure why. But I think it's obvious enough that I am female and I correct people who assume me to be male.

As for the elections ... I think I'm pretty done for the night. Doesn't look like I'll be getting my state's results tonight. Gdit Florida.

I don't know. You seem to type like a normal person. Gender ambiguous. Usually when I think of how a female types, it's with lots of smileys and overzealous use of exclamation points and question marks.

Trying to determine a person's gender from the way they type is difficult in general.

I used to genderbend back then, but not anymore. It's pointless seeing that the majority of the forum knew I am a female.

However...I only do so when I go for a manly theme, like a NASCAR theme.

Wut? Posting style just makes it easier to assume someone's gender. It doesn't mean you're female if you type like a female, and "typing like a female" is subjective in the first place.

Can we continue the discussion there, I mean, there IS a thread for it. Why does the topic have to drag on into a different thread?
8D How about we do whatever I so choose - funny thing is, you're in my section. My rules.

And you changed the topic when you shouldn't have anyways.

I guess I did, but there's already another topic for politics. Do all other threads that have no definite topic have to "derail" into politics...?

It was a question for a few people that may have noticed my post. It ended up being at the top of the page and everyone kept replying to me.

That happens to me too Megan, I may have been using a lot of male themes lately yet everyone knows I am female.

I guess it's cos I have a girly username, "Hikari" does sound like a girl's name.

I don't think I've changed my gender on this website for over four years - jesus, that's too long. I don't even try to generbend anymore, considering I talk about all my crappy male stuff literally all the time, but there's always a couple of people who feel the need to exclaim "Harley! You're...you're a boy! But your info tab... it say female? Female? Internet? Boy?" or something along those lines. I just don't bother to go out of my way to point out the fact I'm a guy anymore, lol.

Ahaha, I misread that as "I don't think I've changed my gender in over four years" and I was like WHAAAAA. I don't even remember what I have mine set to right now... either male or hidden, not sure. I really need to go sort my bio out or something like that since it's really boring right now lol.

...but then I have some work to be doing. ):

I never got into the whole "genderbending" thing myself.

...Although I used to take great amusement in making people guess my gender. :P I think that was mostly after people would call me by the opposite pronoun even while I had my actual gender listed, so I just said "screw it" and took it off and made people assume. I don't care what people refer to me as anyway, and it was hilarious to see the shock at times.

(And while not on this forum, nothing will ever beat the guy who continually mistook my gender for a while after hearing me over a voice program, though. My voice isn't even manly!)

Something kinda like this happened to me once! I was in a Skype call with someone and they were like "oh wow I never knew you were so young!" and I was like "...how old do you think I am" and they were all "about 13?". I was 17 at the time like seriously. ):

The term "gender-bending" leaves a bad taste in my mouth. I wish there were another word for it. Le sigh.

I agree with Scarf tbh.
I don't really like the term 'gender-bending'. :c

I'm pretty sure I've always had the correct gender listed here on PC?

Totally jelly of a one year pair ;_;

Just had my scare of the day in both academic (40% on stats with class average of 55% ._.;;) and 'pairing' side of life on twitter. Will be nice if at least one of those 2 things are going well lol.

Hm how many people even still do the pair stuff though? It's as if hardly, if any, new pairs are made nowadays.
