Yeah, I know, for some of us there's no difference. But has anyone else noticed that you have naturally projected as your correct gender online, perhaps even long before you actually found yourself consciously identifying as that gender? In various chat rooms and games, where I have a completely androgynous screen name, people tend to assume I am male. Obviously, the 'Net provides a medium for expressing onesself without outward physical appearance getting in the way, but are there really distinctively "masculine" and "feminine" mannerisms that reveal themselves even though text alone? *ponders*
