This is something that's never really bothered me too terribly much, but it's interesting how my word choice alone seems to lead people to believe that I am anything other than what I am. Not that have any plans to change the way I write, but I do want to know if there's anything hidden within my manner of speech that leads people to think one way versus another, be it societal expectations, gender norms, or something else.

  • $\begingroup$ sort of social phenomenon. I've never yet told my gender-identity in SE however I'm male. Surprisingly an user used term 'boy' in a conversation which wandered me too. You didn't used 'feminine' suffix after your pen name such as i, a , ia, etc; didn't used any 'feminine' symbols like pink or magenta or purple color, or images of flowers or teddy-beers or balloons or paintbrush or round dots or curvy patterns. (Instead you've chosen a technical picture with straightlines and red,yellow,green (warmer) colors.) If I create a fake account with them; people would presume me as woman pretty surely $\endgroup$ – Always Confused Oct 22 '16 at 14:29

  • $\begingroup$ @what that is a related question but not as exact duplicate. This question seeks more psychological and neurological analysis based on asker's texts as an example. $\endgroup$ – Always Confused Oct 22 '16 at 14:40
