Have you ever been mistaken for someone you're not here on DL? Did someone call you a Freeper even though you're an ultra-liberal in real life? Did you tell a true story, accurate in every detail, only to get accused of being a EST? I'm female and I often get mistaken for being a gay man. My all time favorite was when I made a comment about some actor's looks. He has these really weird, thin lips, so I said, "I don't like his mouth". Someone responded with, "I'll bet you'd like it if your cock was in it." I howled.
What are some of your favorite (or most irritating) "mistaken identity" DL moments?

I was mistakenly accused of an EST. People assume I'm a different gender all the time. The second one doesn't really matter to me. So long as the concepts are well-received, I'm good.
People are quick to make assumptions on DL with not much info.

R3, it's a made up story asking for input, rather than something that really happened in your life.
Elaborate Scenario Troll
When people accuse others, they usually put a rating of how good the scenario was over 10. Like, lame EST 4/10.

Once when I mentioned I never saw The Sound of Music I was labeled self loathing and my parents were homophobic. My parents were punk rockers who met at an X-Ray Spex show. Them watching something like the Sound of Music is about as likely as Mitt Romney watching Pink Flamingos.

R6 Hahaha. My mother dragged me and my friends to THE SOUND OF MUSIC as many times as she could.

Doesn't mean you aren't self-loathing and your parents aren't homophobic.

No R8. All it means is I never saw it. Nothing more, nothing less.

R6 -- I can top that, I hate the Wizard of Oz as a movie ('cept the cute Flying Monkeys).

All the time. I try to choose my words carefully, but there will always be someone to pick up on one word or phrase and stereotype you. .. I laugh it off. It's their lack of sophistication, narrowmindedness and being inept when it comes to semantics. They live in an either/or world and see life in only primary colors.

I have told many true tidbit of "gossip" (not really gossip, because they were true), and was told I was a liar or a shill or whatever. I stopped doing it. On the DL, if you know something about a celeb that others don't want to believe, they simply attack you. But I still love the DL. Check it everyday. Just won't contribute to celeb chatter anymore.

R10, I don't like THE WIZARD OF OZ [bold]and[/bold] I don't like the sound of Judy Garland's voice.
But it doesn't mean I make fun of those who do.

R14 -- I'm not making fun of Oz fans, but that it's automatically assumed gay guys all love the film.

R17 Do you need one of us to call 911? Because clearly someone is holding a gun to your head making you read this.

r17, this is the great idea of choice: go somewhere else if you are uncomfortable where you are. Do you need us to choose for you?
|by Anonymous||reply 20||11/04/2013|
What? The Sound of Music and The Wizard of Oz are strictly gay male memes, R17. Fraus are NOT into that shit.

I was standing on the street one day, as quiet as quiet can be, when a great big, ugly man came up and tied his horse to me.

I got called a frau in a tread I stayed a while ago.

R23 I had a similar experience once when I expressed my anger because despite promising us otherwise, Obama has made exactly zero effort in closing Gitmo. For that, I was called a Freeper. I guess I missed the memo about how only Freepers are against keeping it open.
|by Anonymous||reply 27||11/05/2013|
Accused of being a EST all the time. I always feel stupid for posting here when it happens. Some of us do really have fucked up lives with fucked up shit and people in them.
|by Anonymous||reply 29||11/05/2013|
President Obama tried to close Gitmo and failed. Congress immediately blocked the closure and have blocked it ever since.
When I point out facts like that, extremists like R23 and R27 call me a freeper, an Obamabot, etc. It's silly and fun, nothing to freak out over.

R30 I wouldn't call you a Freeper. Maybe if you were not so quick to misjudge others, others would not be so quick to misjudge you?

I keep getting mistaken for Daniel Radcliffe here, because apparently I type short.

You know, OP, you'd be less frequently thought to be a gay man--when actually you are a woman--if you were to, oh, I don't know, maybe NOT POST THREADS ON A GAY MALE WEB SITE--ya think?

It says "gay gossip" not gay male gossip.

I am constantly accused of being every authenticated (and un-authenticated) troll that posts here. I have been assumed to be Javey, that r girl whose name gets removed, and even MHB. That's why I almost never use my authenticated anymore.

Well, there's certainly no mistaking R33's identity.
