** This happens to Kirito in the fifth light novel (where season 2 is adapted from) - officially, his VR equipment is supposed to scan the user's brainwaves to correctly determine gender, however Kirito apparently counts as "close enough" to female that he was granted an extremely rare effeminate male avatar in ''Gun Gale Online''. Consequently, a lot of people in-game mistake him for a girl. He is understandably annoyed by this.

* In the song "Chiksilog" by the Filipino band Kamikazee, one male ''VideoGame/RagnarokOnline'' player was distraught when he discovered that the "girl" he met online turned out to be CampGay.

Female forum goers have a tendency to get a [[MenAreGenericWomenAreSpecial lot more attention, just by being girls]], so many male {{attention whore}}s use this to their advantage so that they get the attention they crave. They will play and flirt with the male members who may become tickled pink that a girl is talking to them this way. Sad, but true.

true. In the case of online video games, particularly [[Main/MassivelyMultiplayerOnlineRolePlayingGame MMOs]], this may be done with the intention of wringing free in-game money and/or rare items out of desperate, lonely male players who are only too happy to fork over such gifts as FavorsForTheSexy.

This is often inverted on many female dominated forums, such as LiveJournal, where the default identity of new posters is assumed to be female and a guy who acts normally but doesn't explicitly mention he is a guy can go for a long time without anyone asking or realising, leading to "You're a guy?!" moments 6 months down the line.

In the end though, it all leads to ''actual'' women on the Internet using male or neutral user names and fudging personal details specifically to avoid this trope. Or to mess with people. The forum's ResidentFreak can take great delight in this sort of thing, and female freaks have been caught pretending to be men pretending to be women.

Will ultimately lead to [[TheReveal a reveal]] where they show their true colors as blokes and laugh at the incensed regulars. Or a regular will wise up to his shenanigans and unmask him, causing everyone to point and laugh at him as he slinks away with his tail between his legs. Could also be a practical joke played by a regular to which everyone will simply have a good laugh. Most cases tend to end in the second case, which brings up the question of why such trolls even bother doing it since the risk of being exposed far outweighs the potential gain.

gain. Note that not everyone who's biologically male and presents as female online is trolling; see CrossPlayer, {{Transsexual}}.

* Overheard in a city chat on ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'': "Welcome to the internet, where the men are men, the women are men, and the children are FBI agents."
