in thread Omigawd! Surprised by Reality!

Cannot see what, again? "Gender ambiguity?" I wasn't aware that the name 'Abigail' was ambiguous.

'Pat', 'Chris', 'Shawn' these are all ambigious names. However, 'Abigail' is not ambiguous.

If I ever meet the creator of this personna and he wants me to call him by the name of his fictitious character I will of course do so. I will even pretend that he is a she. But I was not aware that this individual is apparently widely known in Perl circles and is sensitive about the subject.

Okay, now I know.

    Helllooo.. McFly! Anybody in there?

    It's not any persons level sensitivity or ambiguity that is at issue. It is your over-reaction that exposes and creates one. It just simply shouldn't matter. If it does, than you should explore why and I believe you'll find whole worlds of human personalities you were never socially trained to even acknowledged their existance.

    This is so NOT Perl.. Sorry my knee jerk reactions have wasted bandwidth

      Whose overreaction? I thought some guy was fooling around and using a woman's name. I expressed surprise.

        My suggestion to you is to walk away from the keyboard slowly. Or just get a shovel as digging holes with a keyboard is extreemly inefficient.
