It was was nickname in college. I've used it in forums since forums were invented. (Ironically, the internet wasn't really a 'thing' when I was in college. I was using a typewriter (albeit electric) when I was in college).

Many people mistakenly associate it with Shakespeare's "Taming of the Shrew", and almost immediately assume it denotes gender. This alone, I find hysterical.
