in reply to Omigawd! Surprised by Reality!

His home node doesn't help matters, either. The graphic is effeminate and there is no personal information given. You would think that he would say, "That's Mr. Abigail" on his page, or somesuch. Perhaps he wants to remain anonymous, and keeping his sex a matter of discussion is part of staying private.

    Don't mean to gossip, but maybe he is a pre-op. Not that there is anything wrong with that on a personal level. But I just feel that we as Perl Monks cannot be silent in the face of the rampant transgenderism among our ranks. I mean, that is what led to the fall of Rome!
    Oooops there goes some more XP...
    Update: After reading the above posts, I realize that this post, and this one alone, went too far. I assumed that the individual who called himself 'Abigail' was simply someone fooling around. Apparently he has genuine issues that he is working out. I assumed that a reference to 'rampant transgenderism in our ranks' would be obviously satirical but apparently I am dealing with a real unusual circumstance here. So now I know. Don't mess with the online personna 'Abigail.'
      Actually, you may gather from the downvotes that others feel that dealing with your "issues" is what constitutes an unusual circumstance.

      If someone identifies herself with a feminine name obviously she considers her gender to be female.  To you this is news.


        Is surprise that 'Abigail' is a male and not a female really an "issue"? I had no idea that 'Abigail' was a well-known personality in the Perl world who is dealing with lifestyle issues. Therefore I was surprised first of all that 'Abigail' was a male, and secondly that mere surprise at that fact is offensive to a fair number of PMs.
