become a Patreon patron

precarious since 1997 | by maryann johanson

for everyone who has somehow failed to grasp this fact: I am a woman

Someone in comments recently assumed that the review she was commenting on was written by a man. It’s not worth pointing out this commenter or this review specifically because this happens all the time: I get emails or comments from readers who assume that they are addressing a man.

So I must ask this:

How does anyone not realize that I am female? My name — my very feminine name, not a “Chris” or a “Pat” or any other name that is gender unspecific — is right there in the banner across the top of every page. My name appears again right under my picture at the very top of the righthand column. I may not be the most attractive woman in the history of the world or even someone a gossip magazine has dubbed the Sexiest Woman Alive at this point in time, but I’d like to think I at least look like a woman. How is it in any way unclear that I am not?
