I chose my avatar because when I'm reading all this scary depressing crap that I am somehow drawn to, I like to be reminded that there are things in life that make up for all the negativity...my baby girl.
This is her "don't even think about it" look, that's as dark as I want to get.

My avatars are either my artwork, or women (dressed within the T&C!) who I find pleasing on the eye.
Sadly, some folks cannot seem to distinguish between an avatar and a person, which is kind of creepy, and definitely one for discussion.
My current avvy is some artwork based on Michelle Trachtenburg of Buffy fame. Because its got a woman on it, people assume I'm female. How does that work?
Its a dark and broody avatar by the way, because I like dark and broody sometimes! I was a goth in my youth, I like the shadows, the dark, esoteric things and being able to express my creativity. I think people should have fun with avvys
I'm not so sure they are an indication of a sign of the times, but maybe I'm wrong on that - my last avvy was fairly colourful.

Good Post Op,
This is something ive noticed too, generally within the subjective and objective sense though, gloably.
The rave dance scene stated really in the late 80's early 90's from house in the UK 9was there and involved) now it started and was all fluffy, loving, modern 60s chic if you like, rave and hugs from random starngers. That was the vibe, the reason the experience.
Well if you took any of those first particitants in that one small section of socity and transported them to some clubs and events in Berlin or Amstrerdam today, and they saw images of Nuclear bombs and death destruction . . .
They would alos then be further shocked by the fact that everyone had their head covered and most of their face by hoods, even more strange
then they would be appalled to see everyone basically in their own bubble looking at the floor dancing, not in a group experience that they had just been transported from!
Just some analogies of the objective nature of this trend in one small slice of global society.
It does seem to be growing and happening!

There's NO possibility for genuine Islam to coexist with anything else over the long haul.
Satanists, likewise are never going to be buddy buddy with Pentecostals nor vice versa.
Even rabid Hindus burn Christians to death in our era.
In any case, worship of the world ruler will be mandated and all who won't will be killed. That much is quite clear from a number of prophetic sources, including the Bible.

I guess some would think that it me on the tricycle.
But my intent was that the child was more of the types of people that cry and complain without offering suggestions or taking actions to solve problems.
Saddly I liked Plucky's cat-girl avatar, although I admit it does make some of your posts read more like they were said in character as opposed to self-expression.
And I have U2U neformore as to the identity of that very attractive redhead he used for quite some time in various pictures. Because she looked familar but I couldn't quite place her.
As far as a dark and scary avatar that I did use:
says something I think.
