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.
For instance, some folks have Spider-Man as their avvy are they actually Spider Man? No.
Semper has Barack Obama on his Avvy, and a communist flag. Does that mean hes actually Obama, and a closet communist. Well the irony of that would be
delicious but..... No.
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
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.
