It's best not to assume anything when it comes to the internet. I generally go by what it says on their profile. A lot of males play as female avatars on MMO's.

some females play as males to avoid being stalked. the only way of knowing if someone (online) is male/female is through voice-chat, and only with some degree of confidence (some games allow voice-chat. not that i've tried)

It really depends. Just assume everyone is a guy so that you'll play it safe. Tell them they're pretty or their avi is cute or colorful and when they react with "wtf" or any retaliations, then you'll definitely agree that it's a HE.

Sometimes I like to pretend the users are their avatars.

My profile picture changes depending on a whim. My gender is listed based on the fact that I have a dick.

I generally play as females when playing RPGs because the most common thing I will be looking at is my character; women appeal to me more. I have no particular intent to represent myself with roll playing games, how dull.

I can also share that both my sisters roll around male avatars because they are so damned tired of idiots harassing them online. They have both been gaming for 20+ years, like I have, but gone incognito. No women on the internet.

I usually use profile pictures as a way of seeing what a person likes, be it the show or character. As for gender I assume everyone is male

I look at their gender that they mark. Not that It matters. Even if you're a woman I'll still hate you equally.

I've been playing LoL with this cute chick from work, she doesn't talk much in game. It's a shame but being a woman online can somehow make a huge difference to some people.

I'm more visual, so I usually base preconceptions off avatars first, and the information underneath after.

I usually reverse trap in gaming. I strongly dislike the special attention females get in gaming and other male dominated cultures. There are few things I find more annoying than the free shit and attention they shower on grills.

It's not about fear, it's about annoyance.

Guys will either suck your dick off, shower you with free shit you didn't ask for, hit on you because they're desperate, insult or flirt with you trying to look cool, or play the super nice guy (knighting).

I don't know what's worse--the men who do it, or the women that enjoy it. Men only do it because a lot of women promote the behavior.

I need to get my feminine voice down so I can get free shit in games, and have guys defend me, like lowly peasants.

In all seriousness that sounds like a real drag if it'll constantly happen.

There one I thought was female due to female picture at top left, and I have male profile and I assumed everyone know I'm male.

But I found out She is a He! =0 I was like why did you have female picture?

I was wondering do you also Identify them this way?

I'm not like PV, looking around for female to add them to friends list like a prevert! :p j/k

I remembered when I played online game, I was told all Female characters are Male, and all Male characters are Female! I told them that is excellent way for those who have bf/gf to have opposite Gender so that way they won't get hit on! XD Due to having jealous Gf/Bf.
