Mistaken identity

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?

Every day I get mistaken for someone named Fresh Kills that I've never even heard of.

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.

R2: What is an EST?

by Anonymousreply 311/04/2013

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.

by Anonymousreply 711/04/2013

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

by Anonymousreply 811/04/2013

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

by Anonymousreply 911/04/2013

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.

R10 .. Blasphemy!! (just kidding)

by Anonymousreply 1211/04/2013

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.

by Anonymousreply 1411/04/2013

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

by Anonymousreply 1511/04/2013

Oh, I didn't mean you, R15 R10, though I guess it did sound that way.

I'm participating in two other threads in which people who hate what we're talking about have entered those threads to piss all over them. My apologies.

by Anonymousreply 1611/04/2013

This is a total frau thread. Please delete. Thanks.

I wish I had my own group of Flying Monkeys to sic on people who piss me off!

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

[quote]Once when I mentioned I never saw The Sound of Music

Good Gawd, you are a brave soul. Did they hiss at you?

by Anonymousreply 1911/04/2013

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 Anonymousreply 2011/04/2013

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.

by Anonymousreply 2211/04/2013

I have always been a radical in the old sense, to the left of the Democratic Party. anti-war, GLBT rights, socialized medicine, confiscatory taxation, guaranteed living wage, earlier retirement age, increased Social Security benefits, free public education through college, union militancy, you get the picture.

When I criticize Obama or the Democratic Party, even the slightest, on any one these issues, I get called out as a freeper.

There are two possibilites, Republican and Democrat. If you don't toe the line the Democratic Party puts forward, you have to be a Republican or a Tea Bagger.

This thread really needs to deleted. Fast.

R24. Why do you keep coming back and posting here if you think it's so terrible? Just go away and all your butt-hurt will be disappear.

by Anonymousreply 2511/05/2013

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

I thought it was funny.

by Anonymousreply 2611/05/2013

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 Anonymousreply 2711/05/2013

stayed = started

by Anonymousreply 2811/05/2013

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 Anonymousreply 2911/05/2013

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.

by Anonymousreply 3011/05/2013

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?

by Anonymousreply 3111/05/2013

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

by Anonymousreply 3211/05/2013

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?

by Anonymousreply 3311/05/2013

It says "gay gossip" not gay male gossip.

by Anonymousreply 3411/05/2013

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.

by Anonymousreply 3511/05/2013

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

by Anonymousreply 3611/05/2013

r33 NAILED it, folks. This thread is officially closed. If you continue to post here you will be deleted and banned.

by Anonymousreply 3711/10/2013

I've been mistaken for R57 many times.

by Anonymousreply 3811/10/2013
