    Hi person who had fun failing at drawing with the rest of us :P though yours were fairly good actually

    I seem to have been one of the few that knew LT was a girl, eh on Bulba genders are always mixed up, if you look at TWR and certain games *coughMafia Mafiacough* you'll see how bad it can be :P

    I knew AT was a girl, did not know that LT was a girl, but knowing that we have a female moderator makes me happy. Why don't you have it show your gender?

    I don't think anyone missed that I'm a girl. Though I have occasionally been mistaken for a boy on other sites.

    There was actually a time when most of the (active) Workshop mods were female, believe it or not. :P

    Well, it's true that most fanfiction writers are girls, so that doesn't surprise me all that much. Also pokemon has a decent sized female fanbase, though I don't think it's quite fifty-fifty.

    The new things you learn everyday! I find it funny how often this stuff slips under the radar until they pop up inadvertently.

    She is, I am pretty sure our names are ranked by how long we have been a moderator at the bottom of the WW front page.

    You should have seen the way my gender slipped out. I'd been masquerading as a boy for personal security reasons for about 8 years until I slipped up by showing another forum something I'd only originally intended to show some IRL friends. Something that had my real first name on it.

    Oops. :P

    Out of curiosity, how big was the surprise when everyone learned your real gender?

    EDIT: Nevermind, that was a stupid question. I'm a bit tired, so that's probably why.

    In an odd way! Was it quite fun being able to masquerade as a boy?

    It had its perks. I didn't have to worry about weirdo neckbeards who don't know what no means hitting on me, though I've certainly gotten an influx of those since then. Apparently I did a good enough job, literally nobody except for someone I knew from school saw it coming.

    Though, I will admit, it's had its downsides as well. I lost admin status at two forums due to it; one thought it was a sick joke that went too far and refused to believe me no matter how much evidence I produced, and the other claimed I was an untrustworthy security risk because I lied about my gender. Not that I was particularly overt about it in the first place. I wasn't like "rawr I'm a dude, look at my mustache and my muscles, rawr I challenge you to a headlock match rawr", I was just... an ordinary bloke who wanted to talk about the forum's subject focus and not deal with community politics, drama or any of that.

    It also had adverse effects on me too, I guess. I was a constant target of bullying and harassment because, while I was masquerading as a boy, I made it known that I had some particularly feminine hobbies. Years of shit over that stuff have turned be into a bitter, cynical person, and I have no tolerance for bullshit anymore. I'm not as ladylike as I'd like to be in real life due to both living that double life and dealing with people harassing me over it. I guess in recent years I've chilled out as I'm starting to enjoy falling into my perceived roll that society has given me.

    rant rant rant, I don't even know what I'm saying anymore.
