Ah, I've not seen you around... but by the avatar I'd assume you were male. Sorry.
yeah, things got busy, and my computers on life support. (and i was sortof rebelling against the new SciLand) lol.
Once i pay off my new (used - i crashed another one) car, I'll be buying a new computer...
JF: um.. your av is a girl, you are a girl.
my av is a girl.. im a boy?
but hello anyway. -s-

Her mistake was not making the results visible. If jaded did then there wouldn't be no problems.
my avatar is a doll... I am a girl.
were my avatar a dog... would that make me a dog?
usually, it is guys who put that kind of picture up, I'm sorry. I know you're a girl now Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image! I went to your website too, by the way Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image! hehe
CP you're right.
Whoa, this is a real boys club eh girls?
too right! haha
If you think about it for a second, it's not hard to see why this is true. Try and figure it out. It shouldn't take more than 3 guesses to figure out a plausible reason.
the girls think they're guys?
Think about your own motivation for coming here. I doubt it's because you think you are male.
Really your avatar looks more like fairy creature rather then a doll.
Because her avatar is based on a fairy character on the site she once mentioned. I know because I also explore that site quite often.
You marked the spot with X, really......
Uhhh, sorry I thought about it and I don't know...call me thick in the head. Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image!

and honestly, im used to the male confusion online. for some reason NightFall sounds masculine, so i get it alot. Please Register or Log in to view the hidden image!
You "get it alot" when you sound masculine? Your guys really are confused.
-in her deepest voice- hey baby.. what you doin tonight?
Consider the following:
1.) Who has the time to come to a message board and post?
Usually those who are in high school or college, due to the fact that school generally does not occupy as much of one's time as the "real world". Most of the younger folks, i.e. 9-13, tend to use instant messaging more often than message boards.
2.) In college, which gender generally is more likely to use the internet, and thus, message boards?
Male. By a rather large margin, most students who major in a science are male, and by far, the internet is utilized much more heavily by students in the sciences (e.g. Computer Science, Electrical Engineering (to look up datasheets for circuit components), etc.) than those in the Arts, which has a largely female enrollment.
Therefore, the above provides a possible explanation as to why the majority of message board's members are male. However, one may ask why are there females on this board at all? My conjecture, is that the members of a science message board such as sciforums are highly unlikely to be exclusively composed of males (speaking from a strictly statistical standpoint), thus, the few females that post are the small percentage that have managed to somehow gain an interest in science. This interest is most likely due to their parents pursuit of such endeavors, and emphasis of such topics during early childhood. (However, this is just a conjecture.)
Alternatively, they could simply be like the other psychotics on this board, possessing and some combination of idée fixes, pet theories, and aberrant personality traits that only draw attention from the masses when exhibited in an anonymous online forum. I'm sure you could think of a few female (and quite a few male) posters on this board who fit this mold.
Later till May rolls around,
i think there are three separate instances in that last post, where as a female of 16 I felt insulted.
oi... screw you hippy
*sighs the sigh of a straight male who can colour co-ordinate*
*hangs head in shame*
*goes and finds some tools in the shed to play with*
