Divorce sale: Is it run by a man or woman?

Dateline: Thu 06 May 2010

This ad is running in Craig's List Indianapolis under garage sales.

Is the author of the ad a man or a woman? No cheating; I know the answer.

It's an interesting exercise in gender studies. Come on...play.

Well, commons ense tells me it's a woman. But this has a ring of masculinity to it...Ill stick with female, but wouldn't be surpriused if it were a man.

Whoever it is needs an AP Stylebook. Holly Arpan and Gretchen Kemp would be mortified.

But, when you want rid of two items, punctuation doesn't get in the way.

(I need a good garage stero...just one, no apostrophe...is this truly on CL? If so, what day?)

It's a woman. She's throwing his stuff out. A guy wouldn't sell that stuff. It's a clue about the divorce likely, too.

What kind of journalists are you? Nobody asked a key question - what kind of porn is it?

That should answer Ruth's question.

Damn Varan....what an obvious question. And the answer would be very illuminating.

Except:

Plenty of gay me I know like straight porn. I don't get it.

Which probably makes me a square.

Very illuminating. Still, wherever do you people learn those kinds of factoids? And, just what quantifiable number does "plenty" represent?

Plnety: in my circle of 15-20 gay friends, half.

Fairly representative, from casual observation and discussion.

Not scientific. And certainly puzzling.

To each his/her own. All good things in moderation, though.

"ITEMS I HAVE:

"CAR STEREO'S What guy is going to sell this?
CAR EXHAUST & CATALYTIC CONVERTER ? You might need it.
ENTERTAINMENT CENTER Used to watch the porn here.
KITCHEN TABLE W/CHAIRS Was from Goodwill.
TWO HOME STEREO'S ( 1 CDPLAYER DOESNT WORK JUST STEREO WOULD MAKE A GOOD GARAGE STEREO ) Note the phrase "garage stereo"-- what woman would think of that???
25 GALLON FISH TANK W/BRAND NEW FILTER (JUST GOT TWO WEEKS AGO) COMES WITH LIGHT, ROCKS, TANK, FILTER, TOPPER, ECT.... Guy impulse buy.
ALSO HAVING WORKING WASHER & DRYER (need $$$)
HAVE OVER 500 PORN MAGAZINES WANT THEM ALL GONE cause he was watching them instead of me!
6 PLASTIC GAS TANKS His lawn biz is toast
PUSH LAWN MOWER.......DOES RUN never used it.
PLASTIC FRONT PORCH TABLE Cheap bastard.
TELEVISIONS for more porn watching.

Nuff said. Dollars to donuts: it's a female. Ruth? Do I get the prize?

Ok, I messed up. Would make a good garage stereo.

I'm waffling. A woman wouldn't touch the porn. The guy thinks that the gas cans have value.

Ok. I flipped. It's a guy.

My initial reading was that this seller is a man, but I hesitated because of the way this post was presented.
