I have been noticing alot of males using an avatar of female anime characters or women instead of guy things and I see all over the place.

Not that theres anything wrong with it, but there has been several times I thought it was a girl and never knew it was a boy until I said "she" and someone had something to say about it lol. Tanx being one of the the first ones I made that mistake on lol.

Has this ever happened to anyone before? Avatar icon mislead you into accidentally thinking a male was female and vice versa?

I tend to prefer female leads, plus I used to cross-dress for fun and pissing off puritans.

So, female avatar.

Absolutely! I guess it's just one of those unspoken things that male avatars are expected to be male users and female avatars are expected to be female users.

It even goes back to childhood. In the winter time, boys usually wore red, blue, or green while girls usually wore pink or purple. Boys had backpacks or pencil cases with actiony, masculine stuff on it while girls had something very soft and cuddly on their merchandise like Hello Kitty or something.

Usernames sometimes put me off too.

I have used Female avi before.
There's nothing wrong with it, most of the guys I know use female avi.

Just don't add female as your gender lol

I have been surprised to find out before but I never had the problem of calling a she a he or vice versa. I almost always just refer to them by their username.

I'm unfortunately quite guilty of assuming who a person is by their avatar's gender or their username.

Which is why I've learned it's best to not assume what their gender is until you get to know them better.

I did assume one user to be male even though she was female. It is more hard to confirm who's a female than who is a male(for me at least Razz )

So, best not to jump to conclusions.
