I'd like to think of myself as a gentleman and I often end up acting more like a male, but at the same time I'm very happy/comfortable being a female.
In your opinion, can a woman consider herself a gentleman? Can she follow the guidelines of what it is to be a gentleman?
What exactly do you think? Yay or nay for the lady-gentlemen, and why exactly?
By 'gentleman' I'm referring to the behavior, as in being polite and your mannerisms and such. Not so much what's in your pants, even though gentlemen happens to be a male pronoun.
And typically women who call themselves ladies are usually preppy and girly, I wouldn't say I'm extremely masculine but I'm certainly not girly.
This isn't about whatever gender I identify as, more so the general idea of women behaving as gentlemen.
Sorry, no. "Gentleman" is a gendered term. She can follow whatever guidelines she likes to be as "gentle" as she wants -- but she's still fails the "man" part of "gentleman".
I've heard the term "gentlewoman" or "gentlelady" before. Kinda clumsy. "Lady" is better.

In this case, your donut/danish analogy works better if you flip it ... "A danish with a hole is a donut."
Brilliant response! I couldn't agree more.
I think you're on the wrong site, good luck with your search
Why is she on the wrong site?
Art of Man-liness should say it all.
My sexual orientation really doesn't have anything to do with manner I behave in.
I generally take this kind of response to these questions as "Yes, I'm attracted to women, but still too insecure to act proud of it."
Also, totally inappropriate conjecture on someone's personal life. Leave your passive-aggressive remarks at the door.
why would she take it wrong? she's proud to be a woman who wants to act like a man
