Dont be too sure of anything in a virtual world.
It aint what u know that gets you into trouble. Its what u know for sure
that just ain´t so…

Some people goes on and on about how important it is to “be yourself” in a virtual world. I dont know what they mean or if they understand it themselves. (Do they have an avie that is a copy of their Real life body?) I dont know if I am “myself” (this is becoming too profound!) but this is The Virtual Me, exactly as I am. In all my shapes, me myself and I. I dont seek approval, but a little hug now and then is totally ok :)
So here is a fairytale for you: A person in a virtual world can choose to look like whatever he or she prefers. It´s a well known fact that we automatically trust beautyful people more than less beautyful people. Humans are not that smart…. If you make your avie look strange or shapeshift a lot, you must be strange IRL (in real life) too. Isnt that so?
I dont think so. I think in fact the opposite. If u really are strange and have problems to fit in IRL you may not want that in a virtual world. You are in a world where you can hide your awkward self behind your gorgeous avie and be “normal”. A dream come true.
It could be that the ones that try the hardest to make their avies look “normal” and attractive, may be the ones you should stay away from. Not the dragon or the flying blue bunny. I cant be sure of course, but I have a feeling…..
Dont dream too many nightmares now ;)
