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.

** 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 the rare effeminate male avatar but is mistaken for a female anyway. He is understandably annoyed by this.

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}}.

** For the most part, though, this is [[DefiedTrope defied]], as some VRMMO games, like the aforementioned GGO, players are not allowed to play as the opposite gender, in order to avoid adverse side effects on players' mental health. Sinon would prefer to hide her status as a female player, but this system doesn't give her any choice.

Based on the belief that ThereAreNoGirlsOnTheInternet. Some forums, particularly male-dominated ones, will be the victim of a special breed of {{Troll}} who will pretend to be a girl just to rile up the boy {{nerd}}s in the community. They display obvious CamWhore traits and may even steal photos of attractive girls off MySpace or {{Facebook}} and claim that they are them.
