Not-So-Great Moments in Social Networking May 9, 2008

So today, I get an update from Classmates.com, telling me about new profile pictures that various people from my high school have posted. However, when I log on, I’m greeted with this:

Just to clear things up, I am not presently a Mom, nor do I plan on ever becoming one. It does make me wonder… how difficult is it to use the gender variable in a social networking site. For some time, I’ve wondered how a site like Classmates.com can continue to exist, and the answer seems to be, “until the people who use it figure out that you can do everything that you can do there, and more, on Facebook.”

At least Facebook seems to have figured out that I’m not a potential Mom.

Ha! Reminds me of the Life of Brian:
Stan: “I want to be a woman.”
“I want to be a woman.”
“Why do you want to be a woman, Stan.”
“I want to have babies.”
“But you can’t have babies, Stan, that’s no one’s fault, not even the Romans! Where’s it going to gestate, in a matchbox?”
“Don’t you oppress me!”
Other member of the Peoples Front (helpfully):”Perhaps we an say that, even though he can’t have babies, it is symbolic of his fight for the right to have babies.”
(John Cleese lowly but with feeling) “”More like symbolic of his fight against reality…”
