In case you missed it in the other thread . . .

I am not a woman. :)

That is all. :) Thank you. :)

As you were. :)

Thank you for the heads up, BM, but it's not necessary to start a discussion announcing your gender. If everyone did so, the place would be flooded with similar threads.

In addition, whether someone is male or female doesn't matter one bit on this board, nor whether they are married or single or hetero or whatever. Some members keep their personal lives closely guarded, while others share all manner of details that are quite revealing. Either way, we respect them for whomever or whatever they choose to be on AW; and this includes how you should be treated as well, regardless of the avatar you've chosen.

There's been some errors. That's why I posted. :)

It's a little disconcerting is all. ;)

If it makes you feel any better, some people still think I'm a fish, no matter how many times I've told them otherwise. They must imagine that I use a waterproof computer in the ocean somewhere and type out all of these posts with my pectoral fins or something.

Although that would be cool....

BlackMagic528---I actually thought you were the woman in your pic until I read your sig line...
I'm not a horse just in case there's any confusion there... ;) ...but I'd love to be next to my sig guy!

I'm male and considerably less attractive. ;)

Hey lots of people think I'm my avatar too. I've had some people tell me they're jealous of how good looking I am.

To be fair, if I was a guy, I wouldn't say no to looking like Josh Holloway either.

What...

*sniff*

What do you....

*whimper*

What do you mean you're not a fish!?

Oh my gosh. What is this world coming to? And here, I had all these plans for us. I mean I know you are a fish and I'm a constellation but I had such dreams for us and our eternal bliss!!!

Fine. Bloody well fine.

*goes off to find someone else to perv...erm I mean dream about.

And here I was keeping it a secret! :) Does this mean you're also a vampire? How does that work underwater?

BM, if it's such an issue, why don't you change avatars to avoid confusion? I'd recommend using an image of a big jumping fish that people will mistake as a phallic symbol. It's worked wonders for me.

bettielee
04-05-2010, 03:42 AM
Or you could change your online persona to that of a woman.

I'm still a fairy, tho. In both realms.

BlackMagic528

I like to showcase my characters (currently Callie) as my avis. They do so much for me, I think they deserve some spotlight. :) And probably 98% of my characters are women. That's just how it is.

I realize I'm not exactly a lumberjack, but I honestly think my tone and whatnot (which I think comes through in my posts) are masculine enough that I kinda wonder how on the good green Earth people actually get the impression otherwise.

Susie
04-05-2010, 05:31 AM

Actually, I might've been morphed into my cartoon avvi. Hope not :D Your avvi is kinda scwary, 'n definitely doesn't look like you. That's a good thing. :)

Like in real life, they must be staring at your breasts and not listening to what you're saying. Now you know how some women feel!

Okay. BlackMagic NOT a woman.

Got it.

Do you wish to be confused with a female persona? Do you like it? Or would you rather everyone knew you were male right off the bat?

BlackMagic528
04-05-2010, 07:10 AM
I'm sure you know my answer to that. :)

But, if it will please the constabulary, I'll shut up about it.

Well, obviously it's not. Which leads to the question, exactly what is a masculine tone?

(I sort of imagine it to be something like, Anyone know how to write a good query letter *turns head and spits*?)

Firstly, I would like to announce that I, too, am not a woman.

I'm no Ray Kurzweil (my avatar), either, nor a Lloyd Bensten (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O-7gpgXNWYI), and I don't own a nice suit like that, though I think I can scrape together a grody piece of cardboard and a magic marker...

To quote the MC of a famous TV series:

"I am not a number, I am a human being!" - Number 6

...could be a couple of things, ya' know...


the fact you're using the terms 'black magic' in your tag... the fact you post neutrally... you're young as well and haven't got that grunty tone/ appeal of the older, more experienced men on the boards


gawd, that sounded wrong :Wha:



anyhoo... be yourself and if someone wants to think you're a girl, there are plenty of ways to show otherwise ;)

People think I'm a girl. Oh my goodness, nothing can be further from the truth. I'm a boy, darn it! A boy.

I hate it when people think I'm a girl. Hate it, hate it, hate it.

So please stop.

And if you think that's bad, try being a fucking fish for a while; then you'll have something to really complain about.

You could say she's your character in your custom user title. I used to say mine was my MC until I stumbled upon some awesome gibberish to put there instead.

BTW, you sound like a girl.


Or a guy.


Maybe you could mention your penis in every post ;)...

Silver King

Yes, but you haven't yet.
