I find it sad that people are worried about a poll asking to identify if they are male or female.
It is not asking your sexuality or anything else, it is supposed to just be a way to show the amount of people seeking self improvement and identify if there are more women or men.
I read the articles on men speaking to women differently very amusing, as there are some male chauvenists in this world - I speak to everyone the same regardless of gender, but it is nice to know who you are speaking to - and with regards to intelligence, I would never stereotype a woman into being less intelligent than a man, I find it easier making friends with women and find I have a much more stimulating conversation than with another man.
P.s. Yes - I am a man !!!!
