Message 760684 - Posted: 30 May 2008, 15:07:20 UTC

I just admitted in an other thread that I like to play "Second Life".
There in this "game", the gender question is actually always eminent: When you meet another avatar, you don't know in the first moment if the person behind this avatar really is of the gender they impersonate, or if they impersonate the opposite gender. I already met a few people who quite believably impersonate a female person there but are male in Real Life - and one who is female in Real Life and plays a male.

I think this "game" is a good opportunity for people interested in transgenderism of any kind to find out how to act as one of the opposite gender, before they decide to try it in Real Life,

If I wanted to try to act as one in a different gender, the kitties would bite me nuts off......sorry if I am not so transgenderistic...........

Try it in real life???
I think they call that cross-dressing.......

yup. :)
you can bet that I was really confused when I talked to these "ladies" in the game, and we came to talking about our real life... and they told me that they actually were male... They really were convincing..
Well... some cross-dressers in real life are very convincing as well...

But despite being the thread starter here, and having had my share of experiences with transgender people and stuff, I think I'm content enough with my male self to try it myself ;)
