Only by assigning the presumed gender does the conversation in the comic become widely accepted as not offensive.Guest wrote:How do you know the one with glasses doesn't already use male gendered pronouns in self reference, or that the one in the mustard shirt doesn't use female gendered pronouns in self reference?

Also imposing your attitudes towards gender in society is even worse than automatically assigning gender, because it fails to deliever the respect you demand yourself, while attacking someone who actually wants people to respect themselves without ignoring his own demands.
