"So You're A Girl, Right? U hot?"

So this morning (08-27) I posted a comment to the daily thread concerning a game commentary I had posted on youtube titled, "Gaming as a Girl, and Why You Shouldn't Ask Stupid Questions."

Shameless self-promotion: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HrnmitN7Fms&list=UUivP9A82TOjm1BQelTYTfvQ&index=1&feature=plcp

(video contains footage from the Assassin's Creed Revelations multiplayer. No single-player, so don't worry about story spoilers)

Anyway, I received a lot of cool, supportive comments back. I also received a lot of weird, disturbing comments detailing men who were mistaken for being women. Someone suggested making this a thread unto itself, and so here I am :)

Post your stories of being mistaken for the wrong gender, spammed, harassed (only if you're comfortable, of course), etc through 360, PSN, PC, whatever. I talk a little about my own experiences in the video, but you guys are so much more interesting to hear from ;) Plus, everyone mistakes girls online for guys, simply because men are more prevalent in that environment. But usually men aren't mistaken for women (note: USUALLY)!


So go ahead - share away!

(Here's the video. Although if you like it, please do visit the actual page and give me a like or a comment or fave :) I'm an up-and-coming youtuber, and every bit helps! I hope to provide more commentaries like this in the future).
