You're being a little too subtle for me. It sounds like I'm being rebuked for omitting women from my questions and my term "gentleman" in my two recent postings.

Except that all my questions did include women. And the term "gentleman" was used because it appears in the original Victorian quotation I was paraphrasing. You'll notice the second sentence is gender-neutral.
