I think this poll is the result of some good natured joshing that happened in another poll thread. I took it all in the spirit of good humor and didn't react badly to it.
I do kind of wince every time I see 'his'. I am not the most girly, girl but I am a female... as my profile page reveals. :-) But that happens on the internet and it's not the first time I've been called a dude or guy and I've made the same mistake with others.
As far as 'should'... knowing the humor this poll arose from, I didn't take it badly. But for most 'shoulds', I am can be quite ornery... as anyone who has tried to get me to do something I'm not keen to do will know.
And one shouldn't hold their breath waiting for me to start a poll. I won't be using the results of this one to persuade me. :-)
