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...

meh, don't worry about it mate, believe me, you wouldn't begin to understand all the misconceptions people have about me.

i have ADHD, people think i'm on crack

i am about 5,3 and young looking, people think i am 13 or 14, when i am almost 16.

i have sleep circles around my eyes, i look like i'm on whatever drug, i actually have never even touched the stuff.

i also like art and gymnastics, people think WHAT? around me, it's weird.

feel for you man, it sucks.

Aw, man! I know how that feels, people actually though I was on drugs as a kid too!

And who DOESN'T have sleep circles today? :XD:

I didn't think that. :O_o: I really didn't.

You're not the only one, though- I have a pretty deep voice, so I sound like a guy, and people mistake me for a guy on the internet. *Maybe it's the welding.*

But that's strange, indeed. You don't act girly.

People claim I have deep voice too, yet people on the phone think I'm a girl... XP

But yeah, I'd like to think I'm kind and caring, but I'm not girly!

Hehe- me, too. XD Probably because I am!

Not all guys are rough-and-tough careless crazies, that's just a stereotype. People are weird like that. :giggle:

Hahaha, I have no idea. I remember initially thinking you were a girl too for some totally unknown reason, even after I checked your gender on your page I had forgotten the next day. :doh:

Possible factors: your cute pixel art style and subject matter, that first impressions suggest you're a nice person... maybe that's all it takes.

I've also heard stuff from various people online about this subject which suggested a lot of people just assume that anyone on the Internet who isn't a complete dick is female. So I guess you should view it as a compliment sometimes!

I should view it as a compliment, but my brain keeps saying "If you think I'm a girl because I'm nice, then you much think all men are jerks!"... :(

Doesn't matter to me... I just thought you were cool and caring and of this earth... then I assumed male after a little while. Female didn't ever cross my mind, really. :thumbsup:
