    i saw someone post this in a thread and seen it a lot over tsr that girls on here are not like ones in real life.

    i'd like to ask how people came to that conclusion. girls on tsr are still girls. they should, generally speaking, like the same things in a guy and do the same things as ordinary girls out there, in school, college, university or in the working world. so why do people say that tsr girls =/= girls in real life?

    Maybe because they sometimes get treated differently on the way they look?

    Half the girls on TSR are little boys in disguise.

    But seriously. Between us and the internet, there are virtually no barriers. People behave differently. I don't think it's entirely true that people "be themselves more" on the internet necessarily. Sometimes I think they go too far in that direction too and are possibly a caricature of themselves. Sometimes they may experiment and say things they normally wouldn't. It's just a theory, mind you. But I know for a fact: people are different on here to real life so don't take any views as gospel.

    Fixed that for you Also, there are no women on the Internet. When I said ages ago that girls on the net were advanced AI and psychology experiments developed by American PhD students to gauge male reaction to the presence of women online, I wasn't joking.

    Ta.

    I'm not the only person with their academics in their signature, and they're only actually there because I'm sick to death of people PM'ing me and going 'what did you get in your GCSEs? What about your AS levels? What UMS did you get in each module? What are you studying in this subject and that subject? What board are you on? How many past papers did you do' etc. The offers are there so I can find people doing the same courses, for ideas of who I'll be studying with next year - everything else is there because you would not believe the number of people who PM me asking me the same questions repeatedly. (I'd just ignore it, but they they PM you again and again and again.)

    I'm not boasting or expecting other people to care - it's honestly just logical.

    I think what is meant is girls (and guys) act differently online sometimes, they might big themselves up to be something they're not, and because it's the internet nobody will know. They may be totally different in reality. Of course, most don't lie about their gender, but there are other things to lie about.

    Having met several girls off TSR, I shouldn't think that the majority differ too radically from their on-line personae.
