    Just to cut it short , everything can't be perfect . There will always be people who lie , just face it and let the fact that these things are just matter of the inevitable . People who want to lie about who they're or switch genders , let them , like sky blue said if they feel most comfortable leave it and respect their view . Gender switching will come in handy when making videos and suppose you accidentally switch a gender you're not ... The case of permenant decisions always tend to backlash so keep it free for people to choose thanks .

    Like I said on another post, I ended up making a male avatar because some outfits weren't available for females or looked terrible on the small female avi frame (eg the star wars ones). But then I found using the male avi so liberating - not being hit on every minute in the hub spaces allowed me to enjoy looking around without being harrassed. And BTW I got hit on just as much in my neck-to-knee Hogwarts winter uniform as I did in any skimpier female clothing! If I play as a female character or male character in a game, there's not that much difference to being on Home and playing as either one from my own perspective. I definitely use my female much more than the male but at least I have a choice, and I can also be a wolf, dragon, koala, non-biological lifeform, or whatever I like. But I would never deliberately set out to deceive anyone like so many other people do on Home. The fact that my male avi, who I think looks devilishly handsome, hasn't been hit on speak volumes about how many males there must be on Home, lol. Maybe there should be a warning given when you first sign up to a virtual world about being aware of gender switching. I certainly didn't realise for a very long time (I am still so naive) but when I did know I didn't mind.

    I guess it depends on what spaces you go , how you act and how your avi looks. I'm using a female avi all the time on Home and I hardly get hit on...

    I honestly feel people should be able to choose what gender they want to be. For instance I am a girl and play as a girl avatar on home, but sometimes it's fun to change it up and play as another gender. It's not permanent, since I do like dressing like a girl.

    Guys why dont you just not make the game gender locked. I understand people want to express tbemeselves and people have the right to look why does they have to be male or female. Why don't u have just sets of bodies u can choose and mold yourself to look how you want. I'm gender fluid I feel like a girl sometimes but then I feel like a guy. I was so mad I couldn't buy the cute outfits for guys because they was limited so I had to buy some for girls Id like to make a dude be able to wear guy and girl clothes. Let people have the ability to wear want. And cloths shoudlenrt be gender restricted. :) then everyones happy. If you have a problem with freedom of expression this isn't the game for you that is all I have to say about this post.
