really it is ones choice to be a girl or a guy avitar but the reason people get upseat is because its a way some guys try to pick up on girls or guys if they like the same gender as themselves... also some guys not all use that bit as a way of causing havock... but I dont see anything wrong with it. hope I was helpfull
That is because they're losers looking for a virtual date on a game or just weird.
Because the act of pretending to be a girl on Home, when one is actually a guy is inherently deceitfull. They are presenting themselves to others as someone they are not. No different then someone coming on Home and claiming to be some other Home user, or Donald Trump.
Not just a style of dress, or a costume that everyone knows is not real, but a fundamental shift in the dynamics of the interpersonal relationship they are hoping to establish with others they socialize with in Home.
A transgendered person is different. They honestly feel like the other gender. They think like them, act like them and relate to that gender more closely in their daily, real life. A transgendered person having an Avatar in home that is the opposite gender then what they actually are (biologically), is simply them trying to be as honest as possible. By saying "this is who I really am on the inside, please treat me accordingly."
Just some dude, using a female Avatar for s--ts and giggles, does not really feel like a woman inside. He is doing this strictly for his own amusement at the expanse of deceiving others into treating him differently then they normally would. Just so he can have a laugh or be entertained.
This tends to irk people, as most do not like being deceived by someone, strictly for that persons own selfish entertainment.
I'm not saying you can't have an Avatar of a different gender then yourself for fun, but expect some hostility. After all, in the giant game that is social interaction, you are the one breaking the rules.
Be One With The Game.
