Hello readers, thanks for stopping by. I assume you read blogs and ponder their authors the same way I do. I have concocted a cast of characters for all of you anonymous and pseudonymous poster’s and commenter’s. In my head you resemble TIAA-CREF world people, except a little edgier. Like if TIAA-CREF world had an open bar, more rocking music, and a shit ton more sarcasm. Fictitious? Of course, but fun to think about nonetheless. (I KNOW that last sentence is not complete, give me a fucking break Microsoft- your little green squiggly is not going to dictate my writing style! If I was writing for “work” I’d curb my comma addiction and attempt to use apostrophe’s’s’s’’s appropriately…great, now you are screaming the RED squiggly at me damnit). Now, where was I? Oh yes, one issue has come up that am I curious about. Some of you think I am a woman, some a man. Doesn’t really matter to me either way, but what clues are we all using to decide my gender? I find it perplexing that opinions are so varied. We all have our standard indications of gender, that list of attributes that “men write like…” and “women write like…” but I find it difficult to apply these stereotypical criteria to myself. So, without searching for obvious clues (we all do enough research at work after all) what do you think?
