Re: [IP] I Really Am A Girl

I just have to jump in on this one too!

My name is also a unisex name.  99% of the time people expect to see or hear
a man's voice.  My mail is addressed to 'MR.'  Sean Hamblin all the time.
People ask me if Sean is my husband, etc, etc....Even on this and other
support group lists, I've been confused for a Jake's dad.....but hey, I'm
used to it and I just deal with it.  I don't get upset or offended, I just
correct the person and go on.
Sean, mom of Jake, 9 (dx 07/01, pumping 01/02)
Grapevine, TX
