I know a lot of people that always select "female" as their gender on social networking sites because it often effects what kinds of advertising you are subjected to. "Males" often get bombarded with a lot more sexual, "relationship" based ads. I don't care about that sort of thing, but some do.

That is an interesting thought, I can't tell you how annoying it is to be on the most innocent of sites and have busty women telling to come play some RPG fantasy game online on the banner ads, especially when SWMBO comes around asking what kinda site it is you're on.

Actually about a year or so ago Tx was working on an upgrade and ALL of our genders defaulted to female, there actually was several threads about it on here. And I wouldn't be surprised if it's happened a couple more times during updates.

If I were a female, I'd never leave the house!
