Have you ever tried to guess someones gender online… that is, without obvious clues? It is sometimes surprisingly easy and other times it isn’t.
You know the Sigmund, Carl, and Alfred blog that I cited about one post back, in the “Couch” post? I’m going out on a limb and saying I think that it is written by a woman.
Most blogs are a quick giveaway with their pics and subject matter, but some such as this one are …. a challenge. Some blogs , bloggers, and forum participants pique my interest just because it seems there is something there to figure out. I think I often approach people that way.
I suppose taken too far that could turn into a “whack job” sort of activity (as they say)…. but we(I) will keep it all fun and games and just sort of wonder out loud.
Although -fair warning- this was a subject for forum discussion at one time so I know lots of people have thoughts on it.
What clues you to the gender of someone only represented by their words and subject matter… or reading choices? How difficult is it to play another gender?
apart from our physical sexual makeup…. is there something else to gender? Something separate… or is it all intertwined so innately that we really can’t make heads or tails of it?
