How can i tell if an opponent is really a woman?

CBA

It is important because I want to play 50% of my games against each sex (or 33% depending on your viewpoint) so that I am not accused of being discrimatory.

Also, how do you get their names and addresses (I want to make sure I play people of all names, equally spaced across the globe)?

Finally, I am not really a panda. I just want to illustrate how tricky these interweb relationships can prove.

Why is it so important for you to know the gender of you opponent?  It's a game of chess, not a male-female contest. 

And how in the world can you be accused of being discriminatory if you do not, in fact, know which of your opponents are men and which are women?

Kiss her, and see how she reacts. Innocent

Ask them if there's any beer in the refrigerator.

Assuming it is a male, they will respond that they will ask the nearest female. If it is female, they will give you a yes or no answer, giving away their identity!

I'm kidding, of course :)

LMFAO ... if he is gay he may react like a woman but in the view of fairness at least he can say he doesn't discrimnate against gays or hetrosexuals lolol

Ask her/him to marry you.

1)If he/she  refuses without a thought, he is man or gay

2)If he/she thinks about it , she is woman.Women like weird guys.

Ask her mother or previous boyfriend.  Or invite her to go swimming with you.

I'd just get confused and ask her mum to go swimming. Again. (Though it is interesting to see what floats).

While you are swimming with her mom, you could casually slip it into the conversation.  "Oh, by the way, did your daughter used to be a man?"  That's how I usually handle it anyway. Innocent

At least you would know that SHE is female lol

WGM Natalia_Pogonina and WIM energia appear to be women.  Perhaps that W at the beginning of their title is some kind of clue.

Well, I usually figure if they play d4 (white), it must be a woman, e4, a man. nf6 could be, well, use your imagination.

For names and addresses, if it's not on their profile, I just send messages incessantly. Unfortunately, I'm usually blocked. I hope you have better luck.

A while back, people were lamenting how in the recent world championships, all the players seemed to open 1.d4 in every game.  Now we know why - Anand, Topalov, Kramnik and Leko are all secretly women.

Nick, you got a real problem there mate.  Hope you can figure out before it becomes a delima for ya.  You can't tell by the avatar at all.  I suggest you tell them their shoes look great.  If its a woman, she will say thank you, if it's a man, you get slugged.  If either are gay, you are on your own.....lololol
