The term "gentlemen" on the forum


#1

It’s not a big deal by any means, but I thought I would point out that while some forum members will use the noun “gentlemen” to initiate a post, there are in fact some women who are forum members here. At least a couple of them are employed as ballistics forensics technicians / analysts, while others are collectors as most of us are. Catch-all terms for addressing members might be words such as: all, collectors, everybody, folks, fellow members, etc…

There are no complaints, and I’m sure they don’t mind, but I didn’t know if people were aware of our female members, given that many screen-names are ambiguous with regard to M / F.
