First I saw Caitlin Tobias do it. Then I saw Vick Forcella do it. Apparently they both saw Strawberry Singh do it. Now I have to just do it, too … write down Seven SL Facts. Based on what I’ve read from these people’s blogs, these facts are about me. Well, their blogs were about them so mine should be about me. You get the idea.
ONE – That’s me in the picture above. Yes, I have a male form for my Uccello Poultry “character.” Basically I flipped the gender switch in the shape editor, tweaked a few numbers so “he” meets the so-called Standard Sizing that most clothing creators adhere to, then grabbed a skin and some clothes. Of course, I’m also a Furry, a Tiny, a dragon, and hundreds of other forms. Like many in SL, I’m a polymorph.
TWO – When I started afresh on the Main Grid after dumping my Teen Grid account, I began as a male to avoid getting hit on by men. Sex wasn’t rampant on the TG, but if anyone tells you there was no sex there, they are pulling one of your body parts. Two days later I switched to female when one of my first neighbors tried to introduce me to gay male sex in SL.
THREE – Yes, I have had pixel sex (not with that neighbor). Deal with it.
FOUR – Second Life has helped me come to terms with a number of phobias and neuroses so my Real Life is much less turbulent. Thank you, Linden Lab. Now can you please make a good iOS client?
FIVE – Why don’t I use Voice in Second Life? Same reason I have phobias and neuroses. My throat was slit so badly (as in inexpertly) when I was nine-ish years old iRL that my vocal cords are irreparable. I can use an electrolarynx to speak, but it is much easier to use American Sign Language or write on an iDevice to communicate.
SIX – I don’t dance iSL, either. Well, if my wife (Angela Seale with whom I have had pixel sex – deal with it) wants to dance then I will. Or if it is a special event like One Billion Rising or someone’s Birthdday/Rezzday then you might catch me doing it (dancing, not pixel sex). Dancing just strikes me as silly. Really, most animations do at different times, but dancing is just … just … I dunno. I’m baffled.
SEVEN – As far as I know, I am not banned anywhere. There was a time I was banned in lots of places just because I worked at the Isle of Lesbos. Proof that lesbians are human, too, as they can be just as mean and petty as straight people. Makes you wonder why someone is banned from certain activities and conventions because who they want to have sex with when by all other accounts they are “normal.”
