Re: ATL:Enough Background, Thanks!

     [beginning message body cut to save space]
I still don't how our family will be received.  May I get some response 
from those in the Marinus Tyr Y Don area?  Would you acknowledge a male 
persona?  I pull it off pretty well, judging from how many times I'm 
called "Sir" in mundanes.
Thank you again for your gentle replies to my questions.  I must admit 
that my interest in re-joining SCA was prompted in large part from 
lurking on this list and seeing how truly gentle so many of you are.

frequently forced to play female parts as medieval time progressed...

Speaking from observation, milord, I suspect that if you introduce yourself as 
Lord Whatever, that you will thereafter be addressed as Lord Whatever unless 
you change that.  ]
(Of course, another option would be to find a medieval name that doesn't 
automatically reveal gender, sort of like the mundane Pat or Jesse...then you 
could not tell them anything, and take offense either way!)
