Somehow your rant seems self-contradicting from here..
"it's tiring to always be made to feel different, abnormal."
So why not accept the logical thought (well to me anyway), and assume that everyone is included, its just a figure of speach?
IMO its much more of a compliment to have ones existance acknowledged by NOT being mentioned extra, by the speaker (or mst, whatever) just meaning everyone. "Man" is a race, as well as a gender.
I'd rather we did away with the -woman badges (it got started cos some *guy* said that women might be offended), and went back to the "its for everyone".
Jess - female, and just getting on with it.
