Apparently, gender still matters to some people – at least enough to
ask a semi-embarrassing question… ;) Reminds me of a story Patrick
told me. Some people at APC were apparently talking about people
they’d met online, and there was some confusion as to the gender of a
‘sachac’. They thought ‘sachac’ was gay because of the way sachac
typed. Patrick had to… ahh… straighten them out.
