regarding your recent edit[edit]

at Audrey Munson, (I think it was your edit) the word "actress" is probably on the way out, being replaced by a non-gender specific "actor". This has already occurred with the words sculptor/sculptress and I suggest that you do what ever emotional work necessary to help you come to grips with this. I might be wrong (I have already been wrong 3,271,116 times in my life) but don't think that this will be the next time. Einar aka Carptrash (talk) 20:27, 20 February 2013 (UTC)

Thanks for your well thought out note on this subject. When I started the Munson article years ago (as with the Tina Modotti one - another silent actress) I was quite emotional about it and that has not worn off. I make it worse by assuming that everyone feels this way. When dealing with (what I consider to be) serious editors I tend to not undo edits that I have issues with, rather, and in your case I am very glad I did, to talk about it. I had been talking about the gender thing with a friend who is in SAG, and he says they are dropping it as well as with my daughter who teaches college gender studies, so it was a hot topic. Since this is an area that you are actually invlved in editing please consider me to be a resource to use should you need back-up down the line. Life is supposed to be interesting, & I have to go right now. Carptrash (talk) 15:42, 22 February 2013 (UTC)

Clara Kimball Young[edit]

Hi, could you please explain why your reverted ? The two images are clearly of the same period but I find the one I uploaded significantly more detailed. Cheers, — Racconish Tk 05:55, 2 September 2013 (UTC)

  • Hi. It was just a preference, and I didn't look to see that the other photograph was in the Public Domain, which it is. Feel free to change it. I won't revert again. Cheers. ExRat (talk) 02:13, 4 September 2013 (UTC)
Yes check.svg Done. Thanks, — Racconish Tk 05:22, 4 September 2013 (UTC)

"Male" film actors.[edit]

No, I don't agree and the consensus is now to have "male film actors". See Category:20th-century American male actors, for example. See the discussions at WT:FILM if you think it should be changed. Lugnuts Dick Laurent is dead 09:28, 3 November 2013 (UTC)
