Avatars and Sexuality
Posted 11/12/14 , edited 11/12/14
I look at avatars more like a representation or a statement rather than some aspect of a person's sexuality.

As for mine, well, It's always been some form of cat - at first just because I wanted to represent myself with a cat and now more because it's always been a cat or cat-like humanoid so I don't want to break my theme.

Personally, I'm somewhat uncomfortable using female avatars. I feel like my "internet voice" is coming out of my avatar, and so it doesn't seem right for it to come out of a female picture. Yet, it feels fine coming out of a cat for some odd reason. Go figure.

I really don't think it matters though. I think people's avatars say a bit about their personality, but not their sexuality. Unless they make it obvious (such as with a picture of a male or female posing provocatively).

As a side note, it could be somewhat pragmatic. Oftentimes i'm tempted to use female avatars in games and whatnot just because they tend to have forms that are more aesthetically pleasing. Usually I can get that same satisfaction from dandyish male characters though (like elves for example).

Faceless avatars are the pinnacle of sexuality.


I approve of this statement.

Mine is just a portrait of myself I had commissioned. What you think I'm lying?

My main characters on WoW are female, my reason is that If I'm going to be looking at an ass for hours (formerly days, god I miss old AV) I'm at least going to enjoy the view.

I chose mine since the anime was my favorite sport anime streaming at that moment and actual favorite sport in real life. But I usually got with unisex avatars since those are usually the cool ones.

My avatar is, well, quite literally a picture of me! I've never understood why people choose to identify themselves (or, you know, their personalities) through character avatars. I feel that my picture perfectly conveys who I am. A mixture of goofy and serious, not to mention devilishly handsome ;D.

It's true that I like having cute girls as my avatar every once in a while, notably when they are seasonal and pertain to a holiday...

However, usually my avatars, like mine right now, are just characters I really like. Hak from, Yona of the Dawn, is a great character this fall anime season, so I have him as my profile pic.

It can also change depending on my mood, but to answer the other question, yes, I do believe that some profile pics can reflect one's sexuality, although it depends on the person and mood they are in. I hypothesize, but cannot prove, that if they are in a relationship or not could also be another variable, but I don't know for sure. Still working on that one.

My avatar is either a character that I like or represents a mood I may be in....

There may be something else going on at a deeper level..... or not....

The Villain in Glasses has the best facial expressions. Truly an evil creature. People who choose him for an avatar really do have great taste.
