I appreciate you calling me out on that. I definitely did assume it was a guy and you are right, it’s never good to make assumptions. I began to assume it was a guy after it was mentioned that he can now bench “double his body weight”. There are plenty of women out there who can do that, and it definitely isn’t inherent in males. Lemme tell ya’, I’m not benching double my body weight any time soon!
I do concede that I likely would have made that assumption regardless. I’m very much against the way we socialize gender roles beginning when people are children (toys are a great example), and its so pervasive that I often see it in myself, as you’ve pointed out.
