    am I the first one to ask why the inverted commas?

    when I was going through the early stages of gender reassignment (AKA sex change), I was given like, workshops teaching you how to present as either gender, type of thing. little differences were pointed out, like the fact that women laugh a hell of a lot more than men, but that a lot bigger percentage of that laughter has nothing to do with humour and more about showing submission/smoothing over awkward moments etc. Men laugh less often, but it's almost always to do with humour and amusement.

    That's an interesting thought, Substitute. I never really considered that some people use laughter that way. I'd ben interested what else they said. Was it more difficult making the physical switch or the social/mental switch of changing genders?

    like I say, follow the link - impossible to answer that without hijacking the thread.

    back to the topic of laughter...
