* Discussed in 'LetsPlay/LetsDrownOut Assassin's Creed: Brotherhood', where [[BenCroshaw Ben 'Yahtzee' Croshaw]] encouraged the viewers to go on a chatroom and be someone completely unlike themselves, such as a pregnant teenage black girl, to see the exciting side of roleplaying. This was also implied when Gabriel wondered about the time when Yahtzee was scamming players in WorldOfWarcraft by pretending to be a lady.

* Following the Ashley Madison dating site scandal, it became known that a huge percentage (in the range of 90%) of the alleged female users looking for infidelities in their site were actually the company employees creating false profiles and sending fake messages to atract the money of hopeful men.

* The (male) creators of a neural-net evolutionary-algorithm checkers-playing program wanted to test their software against real players, so they created an account on Microsoft's online gaming portal ''TheZone''. To make sure they'd get plenty of responses, they used the account name [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blondie24 Blondie24]].

* In the [[Music/PeterPaulAndMary Noel Paul Stookey]] song "Virtual Party," the protagonist enters a chatroom and soon has someone who goes by the name "Mata Hari" (whom he later finds out is [[spoiler:his wife]]) trying to flirt with him. Paul, despite his age, is rather GenreSavvy.

Added DiffLines:

* The main character of ''LightNovel/OnlySenseOnline'' suffers from an involuntary case of this. In real life, he's an extreme example of DudeLooksLikeALady, so when the console for the titular virtual reality game scanned his body, it assumed he was actually female. As a result, he was assigned a female avatar. In the game itself, everyone aside from his sisters and childhood friend think that he's actually a girl, despite his protests.

** 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.
