    Now males outnumber. I wonder if the demographics have shifted here.

    Nope, it's because I've had a gender reassignment operation *joking*

    Shouldn't there be a Neuter in the poll ?

    yeah, what about me? I'm a complete mess:
    - biologically female and have no wish to change that
    - married to a man and not beyond ogling other men
    - my brain is female and regrettably unable to do spatial rotation according to a quiz BBC science
    - prefer guy clothes, but lots of people still think I look cute and girly
    - prefer to socialize with guys
    - feel "gay" when girls talk about handbacks, boy friends etc. (as in
    uncomfortably gender-confused and convinced I'm a bloke and shouldn't be
    talking about this)

    I wanna see you create a poll that covers all those dimensions, otherwise I'll feel discriminated against and sue LitNet *joking*

    Ah, but are you sure that he is not beyond ogling ( or even googling ) other women?

    Pretty sure I'm a dude, last time I checked anyways...
    "This is our birthplace though, this is what we deserted long ago. This is where we used to live, on balls of dust and rock like this. This is our hometown from before we felt the itch of wanderlust, the sticks we inhabited before we ran away from home, the cradle where we were infected with the crazy breath of the place's vastness like a metal wind inside our love-struck heads; just stumbled on the scale of whats around and tripped out drunk on starlike possibilities."

    Well, the tide has turned. This used to be a 2/3 female haven. Now it's the other way around.

    I am actually a woman.
    I am not happy being called 'female'.

    Congratulations!

    "Female" refers to a biological classification and includes a larger group than "woman", which is a social construction and does not include our younger members (pre-teens or teenagers).
