I wonder about you people

I wonder what the gender is of posters whose gender is not obvious from their handles (user names). For example: grumblebee (my guess is male?) and kleenex (female?). I have a lot more of these gender wonderings.

I wonder if Ironchef's avatar is a picture of him (or her) and what he/she means by "I do seafood" in the public profile.

I wonder what Mylegsbig finds hilarious about the avatar he(?) uses and why he/she chose that handle. And I wonder why Saltygreasybacon chose his(?) handle. I have a lot more of these handle-choice wonderings, too.

I wonder what "Contest Winner" under someone's handle means.

I hope my wondering doesn't offend anyone. I prefer to think of myself as "interested" instead of "nosy". Does anyone else wonder such things?

This is terrific forum - great people sharing a wealth of knowledge and good feelings!

Lee

Well I guess you can figure out that I am female based on my name

I presume Iron Chef is male, not sure why. I presume mylegisbig is male, for obvious reasons based on his name

Contest winners are those that won contests on here based on various topics in certain forums, but typcially in " off topic" forum.

Now That You Mention It

Now I am wonderin about your handle, yours is not exactly gender revealing unless I am missing something. I have often wondered about users handles and get mad at myself for not coming up with something witty like they did.

Sattie is a nick name pick up at work, real name is Satin (like the material) and I would be a she.

I'm a guy.

My avatar is Greg "Fossilman" Raymer, the 2004 World Series of Poker main event winner. I like his style of tournament poker playing.

I do seafoods = Seafood is my specialty. That and sauces.

Cool thread! I wonder about some of those things too - like what different people's screen names mean - other than the obvious - how they chose them. I think it is obvious I am a girl.

My name is significant because it indicates my real identity. I am Dorothy's Auntie Em (Andy M.).

Most people don't realize that the Wizard of Oz is a true story, fictionalized for the movie. The real Andy M. was a man whose gender was changed to female for the movie and the name was modified to accommodate the gender change.

The real story is about a 12 year old girl who was lost in a tornado in the dust bowl in the 30s. She was missing for some time and the family was beginning to think they would never see her again.

Many months later she reappeared as a changed person. Upon investigation, the police found she had actually run off to California and was making her way selling illegal substances to the Hollywood set.

Several months into this new endeavor she got tired of the wicked life she was leading and headed home. She arrived at the farm late one night and walked into Andy M.'s room and tried to awaken her by pulling her leg....


...just like I'm pulling yours right now.

Nope... last time I checked I was female! Admittedly though, my username is rather gender neutral. But that's why I chose a pink avatar. Pink = girly, didn't your mother teach you that?
