I just got a spam message advertising a beauty product. In the subject line it said, "You are a Beautiful Woman". It went on to tell me how I am wonderful and beautiful - and I don't hear it a enough (after which it tried to sell me something for my wrinkly, saggy skin). It's true I don't hear it enough. In fact, I don't hear it at all - at least not to my face. I admit there are occasions when I feel pretty and want to listen to Bette Midler or watch a musical... but they are really pretty rare. I have enough problems in my life without my inbox adding gender confusion. Isn't it enough that they think I'm bald, fat, under-financed, impotent, and have a very small ....er...uh... television? Do they have to criticize my makeup as well? I remember that old prayer, "Lord, help me be the man my dog thinks I am." I would add to that, "...and never let me be the man (or woman) my email thinks I am."
