No, seriously!
Why do people who hear me on the phone think I'm a girl? I've actually ended up in girl only job interviews because they thought I was female... Even though I have a male name....

It's even happened in real life! The other day in a store, the clerk behind the counter and when she heard my voice... she thought I was female...

Yet, people say I don't have a female sounding voice....

This doesn't make sense!

And you wouldn't believe the number of times someone online thought I was female...

Do you think I'm a girl because I'm female because I'm nice and caring? Does this mean you think men are puppy kicking jerks? ¬_¬

Because every time someone thinks I'm a girl because I'm nice to them, I think they must think men are well... not nice!

I'm not mad now or anything, but every time this happens online, I can't help but to wonder WHY the other person thinks I'm female...

I'm sorry you are i guess commonly mistaken for a girl :(

lol, i'd help if i could but... obviously I really cant ^^;...

I do think though it greatly has to do with your being nice... I didn't think you were a girl, but in my personal opinion most people probably do because Most of the guys for example who I know, even the ones that I don't know very well are horrible mean, degrading jerks... you're one of the few who aren't :)

Maybe it's not such a bad thing...? =shrugs= just a thought.

But regardless of if you were male or female, you're an amazing person :glomp:
Don't let it get you down :)

It doesn't bother me when people think I'm a girl, I just think that those who get me mixed up with one must think men are jerk...

I don't know if someone's a male or female on DA until I look under their name to find out. :XD: I guess because I tend to see more female pixel artists I automatically assume one I see on DA is female until I check. Guess a lot of people here tend to make that same assumption... ;P

Sorry to hear you were thought of as a girl even in real life. :(

I guess we all have our own assumptions, I keep wondering if all female artists dig old pixelly games like I do! :3

Meh, I'm kind used to it by now... :(

Awww you shouldn't have to be used to that. But I guess you can't do anything to stop it either... kind of like the way people keep mispronouncing our last name Gerkin. Instead of the proper hard G (like the pickle), we get people saying 'J'erkin instead... *sighs* :(

I do! I do! :w00t: Loved some of the classic nintendo games, like the original Legend of Zelda and Mario Bros. I even had the old Atari 2600 and a few games at one time! :D
