I am Italian, and I do not hide my origin: on my profile you can see a link to my website, which contains a complete CV.

That said, I downvoted the answer because I considered it a very low quality one, and I commented accordingly (although I might have written the comment somewhat hastily). Also I would like to point out that I commented right before downvoting, not "after you stood up for yourself".

Now, the question is not that good either (you'll notice I voted to close it), but at least I did not interpret it as "what's a good name for a monkey". My interpretation was of a more general kind, something like "how do you name animals for which the grammatical gender disagrees with the biological sex?"

I am afraid that it takes time (sometime days) for answersquestions to be closed on this site. It is a consequence of the community not being very active.

I am sorry if that has been perceived as bullying, that was not my intention at all. However I stand by my opinion that your answer is not really helpful for the OP, which is all that a downvote represents.

Let me reiterate that, at least for me, you are absolutely welcome to this site, both as an asker and an answerer. I regret that your first experience was somewhat confrontational.
