  • No, it is usually not intended.

    Unfortunately, sometimes female users on the internet can be referred to as male when they are not. This is simply a side effect of the fact that (arguably) the majority of users on the internet are male. I also think that it might be a stretch to far to be offended because of this. It is an usually an accident, and unintended.
