A Query Sophisticated Gentleman 13/04/05(Fri)06:32 No. 2215

To all whom it may concern:

I consider myself a patron of the arts, and engage my mind in higher pursuits for the joy of knowledge.
I maintain my body in concert with my mind, staying well-muscled without growing boorish.
I do lounge in low company, but endeavor to be of a stately bearing in mixed company, and am gentle in speech in all places.
I argue in the traditional meaning of the word only, for I am fond of polite debate and spurn the sourly-manged dogfights of heated words.
I ask of others first, only mentioning my pastimes if their mention is sought after.
When asked, I do not ramble, brag, or spin falsehoods.
When I escort my date to various amusements or fine dining, I foot the bill discretely,
without drawing attention to the sizeable paycheque that comes from my respectable employment.

I understand that repetitive "I" statements are off-putting, but feel as though they are applicable in these words.
I am grateful for your fortitude for reading thus far.

My life is charmed, but for this one spot that mars: I am unsure if one may be a gentleman, and also a woman.

I am perfectly at ease with my gender. Truly, I prefer it to all others, and would be loathe for it to leave my possession.
I still wish, however, to be of your number.

Do my thoughts grow foolish? They are content to wander as they may, and have arrived in eerie hemispheres often enough.
This longing has been a constant companion for some number of my years of drawing breath, with no answer in ready sight.

Patiently, and gratefully, I await your answer, kind sirs.

As sincerely as she may,

A Ms.

I would find it unreasonable to limit a person's ambition to be a Gentleman by gender. Therefore it is my considered opinion that a lady engaged in Gentlemanly pursuits is by description A Gentleman or Gentlewoman or howsoever one would like to refer to one's self.

Thank you, kind reader.

I'd love it if a woman paid for my dates. Of course in the past I could have gotten them to but they didn't seem to mind when I insisted that I pay. Maybe I shouldn't insist too hard. you know some of the most powerful women in history have been gender-benders. I think a woman that could achieve a certain level of masculinity while not abandoning her femininity entirely could be excellent company

You may change your name to Sophisticated Lady, when you wish to make your sex known.

Sophisticated Gentleman 13/06/03(Mon)13:04 No. 2379

There is a female equivalent of the gentleman and that is the lady.

Sophisticated+Gentleman 13/06/20(Thu)04:02 No. 2404

Indeed. A gentle woman is not a gentleman at all but a lady, which is for all intents and purposes the same and equal thing, only by a different name, as it were.

Sophisticated Gentleman 13/08/28(Wed)16:38 No. 2517

Whichever name you choose for it is of low importance.
The idea of dividing people by gender and seeing differences will not parish, but seeing one as lower or not capable of anything only because of group affiliation is a grave mistake our society has made.
Therefore every struggle to correct this mistake by disproving these assumptions, without overstepping the personal boundaries of other people, is just and in no case foolish.
Welcome among us, Ms. Bowler, I salute you and hope our answer, even though it will probably not be a final one, is to your liking.

As it happens, I am a purveyor of the age of enlightenment and era of some of the greatest gentlemen to have ever bore the title. You simply require a role model, an embodiment of the spirit you seek, creator of this post. That gentlewoman is Émilie du Châtelet, said by the sly, and intellectual gentleman Voltaire to be "a great man whose only fault was being a woman"
