I find it amusing (and a little disconcerting) that since I started posting under a gender-neutral pseudonym on political blogs (after the Kathy Sierra brouhaha, partly as an experiment), other posters assume I’m male.

Whether it speaks of everyone sharing a patriarchy-infused bias that the default of humanity is male, an assumption that males are more likely to use initials as their pseudonym, or of my personality, I don’t know. Hmm.
