Dear Catspaw,

It's pretty clear some of you need gender specific, nationalist, ancestral, and religious identity to hang your prejudices on, and without it, you just can't function normally.

Credibility is not a function of whether you are male or female; British or American; of African, Asian, European, Australian, or American descent; Jew or Gentile or Muslim.

Credibility is rooted in what a person knows, and how well they express it.

And really dear, I'm not too concerned about my credibility among people who choose to use cutsie animal appendages as pseudonyms. Now *that* presents a credibility problem.

And the same to you.
