Male or Female Instructables, which are more looked at?

I need to know if I should cater more to male or female viewers?  I think more men are on this website than females but I was woundering if anyone could tell me the truth.  I would also like to know the adv age of people on this web site so I can cater to those ages better???  Thanks Denae :)

Male and Female ports/adapters

I just realized why computer or plumbing parts are called male and female. The female one is the one you stick something into right? The male one is the one you stick into something. I'm just saying who ever named them must have a weird mind. I realized this when one of my friends made a joke, so please don't say I am perverted.

Wedding Cake Toppers

Since samesex marriages became legal here in Sweden two days ago it is becomming clear that no one is making those little figures that go on top of the cake in more than one theme (guess wich one). There is the usual pair but they're often plastic molded as one piece and needs a LOT of work to mod. We need an instructable showing how to make, mod, mold, sculpt, massproduce or even bake toppers for Gays, Lesbians, Bisexuals, Transexuals and Transvestites (I've probably forgotten someone).

This male cat adopted us; our cat freaking!!! Answered

Anyone know how to acclimate two cats to each other? One is male (aggressive); the other is an older female (timid). Pulling hair out (mine). this has been goiing on for almost 2 years. Juggling cats not easy for two seniors; however, we love the little boy too. I have put up a barrier in one room that the male doesn't seem to know how to jump, and we let them see each other. Fem cat hisses, spits and runs unless I am there to put my hand on her; someone has to be holding him at the same time. We have cat windows, crates, and a kitty walk, and we utilize all of them. Aaarrghhh!

What makes a voice male or female, besides pitch?

I am making an animated film, and I plan to voice the whole thing. thanks to my wizardly powers of audio editing (aided by Soundtrack Pro, no less) I can make it sound like anything I want! but, what exactly makes a female voice sound female? I know pitch is a part of it, but just raising the pitch on a deep-voiced male (read: Me) does not girly voice make. Audio and/or music terms? suggestions? thoughts?  feel free to post any of the above.  Ciao!

3,5mm male stereo mini plug source and quality query

hello folks, my son keeps bending the wires of all his headphones, causing them to start cutting out in either one or both channels (and now he has done it on one of my nice sets of headphones).  i was wondering if anyone could recommend a place where i can buy them in quantity.  my other question is whether there have been any improvements made in the ease of soldering.  i would think that so many headphones go bad at the jack, probably by pulling, that someone would have invented an "easy-solder" jack.  given that isn't the case, maybe a recommendation could be made on at least a sturdy plug with some sort of stress relief built in?  the large quarter inch stereo plugs used to come with spring coils. thanks for any suggestion, recommendations, comments, etc!

Can the male end of an iPod dock connector be adapted or spliced to take in plain 3.5mm audio input? Answered

I'm aware that this might not work on the technical level but I'm willing to try it. I've got a car stereo that I've used for about 8 years and it works fine. It uses a proprietary cable (Alpine), kind of like this (http://ak.buy.com/PI/0/350/203086658.jpg). It plugs into my iPod that closes up in the glove compartment and then it allows me to select artists and change tracks through the knob / buttons on the face. Since this stereo deck doesn't have any other inputs, I was wondering if I could build a cable to accept audio coming out of my cell phone or any other device. I know that the 30-pin iPod dock connector has various lines for power, data, audio, etc. and I was wondering if anyone has experience with this. Maybe I could split the wire in half or get an adaptor with a female iPod plug to a male 3.5mm adaptor. I've tried Googling these things but it's too hard to describe what I want in keywords.
