“I had the impression you are a gay male. However, notwithstanding that …”
“I had no idea you're a woman. Well...”
After learning that cases of mistaken identity abound on the Internet as evidenced by the above comments to me, friends, and fellow bloggers, I thought, perhaps, a bit of clarification is in order.
My avatar is female which I mistakenly thought would settle the matter of gender once and for all. If it should even matter, which au fond it does not. Yet, it would appear that I'm being perceived as man. Perhaps, it is my queenly writing style that is leaving readers mystified.
For the digital record, I am of the female persuasion, who is just the least bit flattered by the confusion, since I openly admit to an obsession for trousers on me and on men (hetero and otherwise). It is my hope that this revelation, which has been in some doubt, will not offend, alienate, torment or anguish any and all.
