She's not a man...

    Recently I posted a thread on meet the worlds greatest hubber where someone mentioned drbj was a great hubber.

    I commented back that yes drjb is an impressive man or something to that affect, not aware of it until today... 

    Wavegirl sent a copy to drbj.

    Today while reading a hub on the topic commenting by drbj I noted she ended by saying something like did you know some hubbers think I'm a man.  She included a portion of the forum thread where in I made the comment.

    Bottom line, Maybe I was surfing about faster than I should have and in haste made the error in my comment.

    BUT at no time what so ever did I think drbj was a man as I do enjoy her thoughtful and considerate comments and from having read so many of them with interest I long came to the conclusion that she is in fact a women.

    drbj no doubt you are a very kind man opps I mean women and so thanks for your always kind and thoughtful considerate comments. Please forgive my hasty error.

    Peace smile katiem2

      Any women that picks Dr. BJ for an ID has my deep respect and admiration, not to mention an intense compulsion to want an appointment with the "Dr." ! wink

    Katiem, you sweet hubber, never for one single second did I mind that you thought I might have been of the male persuasion. Actually, if you had that would have been kind of a compliment.  I was guilty of the sin of omission by not being specific in my profile. Did it for fun to see where it might lead. Hope you forgive me. If it weren't for my seeing that particular thread I would not have had the idea of creating my hub on comments and how to make them. So I owe you one. Would you like it in dollars or pounds?

    leeberttea - I have been drbj since I began working in the Pleistocene Era and being a woman it has provoked many provocative reactions when some folks have met me. Guess I really do enjoy mind games as katiem pointed out.
    Would you like your appointment in the am or pm?

      Nowadays you have to be careful with what you say or do.
      You cannot joke with your gender and you can not say that your friend is alway gay(meaning :merry, happy), at least not in Canada in 2010.

        Yeah that's Canada, where they no longer believe in free speech, unless it's "right speech".

          Oh, "right speech" is always free over there, as much as you like! Proper behavior is very popular...

    I already knew from reading your hubs and comments and profiles how gracious, intelligent, discerning, and perspicacious you all are. Hubpages is very lucky to have you!

    It's funny how the ambiguity of our hub name and avatar can sometimes cause readers to misinterpret us.

    Depending on our writing style, and our choice of words in commenting, it may take a while to have other readers catch on to what gender we may be (as if it matters, really cool).  The most important thing to convey, I think, is honesty and respect, along with support for our fellow hubbers.

    With so many hubs and hubbers to read, it's easy to miss some of the better ones.  Thanks for pointing out yet another fine hubber, Katie smile

    I'll be sure to check out drbj very soon.  Thanks.
    And a big hello to my fellow hubbers as well smile
