    The reason I thought Tazer was male is that 'his' V is much narrower than Mudflaps although both tails are pretty stubby. But I guess the different species is the reason because almost everyone on different boards believe Tazer to be female.

    It's not a problem for me ... I just hope the Estrogen level doesn't get too high or the "Boys" and I may need to hide somewhere!!

    Good thing we live in modern times and you don't have to provide a dowry for each of your girls.
