Just thought I needed to put my small CakeCentral pet peeve out there.

I do fully realize that cake decorating is dominated by women, but not everyone here is actually female. I see lots of lots of posts that say "Thanks Ladies," Ladies, I need your help" etc. Part of me wants to ignore the topics sense, well, I'm not a lady! icon_smile.gif But in general, I don't.

So, call me over sensitive, but just wanted to remind everyone that there are some men here! icon_smile.gif

I don't think any of us do it on purpose. If someone does say it or refers to you as a 'she' I'd just correct them.

I usually say hey guys, except in the Weight Loss thread, but the ones that do commonly post in it are women.

Actually, I know a lot of cake decorating dudes... but guys get peeved faster at being called a lady than ladies do at being addressed as "Mr." or "sir"...probably why my generation says "you guys", which, is still male oriented!icon_lol.gif

Men verbalize it, women are taught to keep quiet. If a woman mentions it, she's hauled over the coals as being anti-men.
I hate being called a guy. "Come on guys... Oh you guys... Guy this, guy that"
I'VE BEEN A WOMAN FOR OVER HALF A CENTURY!!! I AM NOT A GUY!

That being yelled, you can see I sympathize. LOL
I try to mention in my 'welcomes' that there are guys here as well as gals.

Phrasea like "Hey folks" and "thanks gang" come in handy! icon_biggrin.gif

And of course the ever present "Thanks, y'all!" will work! icon_lol.gif

i try to use "hi everyone" because i spent 15yrs in construction and wore a skirt, nylons and heels every day (and a blouse, no i didnt go topless) - i hate being refered to as one of the guys.... i have higher aspirations than wanting to be a male icon_biggrin.gif

I'm pretty much versatile. I won't mind if people call me a he or she. I'm both.
