In the recent thread on how guys whip it out, multiple posters mentioned that up until I explicitly mentioned my penis, they had assumed I was a woman. I have no problem with this – I rarely mention my wife or my penis, so there’s really no reason for most posters to know I’m a guy. But it got me wondering as to how other people determine the gender of their fellow posters. Do you go by the tone of the posts? Content? Username? Assume gender neutral until you find out?

Me, I go almost entirely by username. I arbitrarily decide from the first sighting which usernames sound like girls and which like guys, and then stubbornly hold onto those perceptions even after multiple confirmations of their falsehood.
