"How dreadful!" cried Lord Henry. "I can stand brute force, but brute reason is quite unbearable. There is something unfair about its use. It is hitting below the intellect." ~ Oscar Wilde - The picture of Dorian Gray
Hahaha, no, was just being silly.

Not everyone's assumed to be male. Wasn't there a recent thread by a male ENFP complaining about people thinking he's female? I've heard other F-typed male posters saying this too.
Maybe with no information about someone we meet online, we assume them to be male. But we all have usernames, most of us have avatars and the majority have a type listed, and those can all create a perception of one gender or another. I think this stuff has more of an influence than writing style or content, since it gives an immediate impression that's hard to erase.
These things tend to make me assume a female poster:
F type listed
Picture of a female in avatar
Picture of a child or pet, or a cutesy cartoon drawing, as an avatar
Feminine, cutesy, or food-related username
These can lead to me assuming a male:
T type listed
Masculine, nerdy or nonsensical username
Picture of a male in avatar
Picture of a videogame character or weapon as avatar
Avatar pictures tend to override everything else, and T/F only comes into play when everything else is ambigious.
