A number of members here have asked for my pic, some of you more persistently than others. I have several reasons for ignoring those requests.

First of all, I have posted my pic in the past in the general members' pics threads that perennially show up. Few people noticed or cared in those threads probably because few ppl knew that I was female. In general, my posts don't usually give away my gender unless I'm particularly offering a female perspective (advice in YAGTs for example:p).

Based on these observations, it's obvious that the only reason for the more frequent pic requests recently is that I finally have 'Girl' in my nick, which is a superficial reason IMO. I don't care for superficiality in general, and that includes male attention based on superficiality.

Another reason is that there are too many of you on this forum that are just disrespectful towards females. and I'd rather not have my pic under the public scrutiny of those types of guys, that's all. Yet there are still quite a few members here, both male and female, who don't fall into this category and who have bothered to get to know me in PM, AIM, or #neochat. I have had no qualms about sharing my pic or even webcam with them if/when they asked.

So basically, showing my pic will be on a show-me-respect-first-and-if-i-like-you-enough-maybe-i'll-show-you basis.

Phew, glad I got that off my chest.:D

What, you thought by changing your nick wouldn't attract more attention?

Exactly why I'll never post pics of my wife or anyone in my family. You generally get one of two reactions. Either the nerds will swoon over how "hot" this person is, or they will criticize the looks of the person. (Even though said nerd has probably never even held a girl's hand. :p )

I anticipated that it would. I had my reasons for changing my nick which I outlined in my nick announcement thread. I still stand by my reasons for ignoring the pic requests though.

Its naive to think you wouldn't get pic requests, or to think they'll stop.

The reality is, the only time I'm not asked for a pic is when I'm not around the forums. I wasn't here for a month, and then lo and behold my first day back, someone (coughbrigdencough) found my pic. I never take myself too seriously though or anything here for that matter, and it's not worth getting mad over. The status quo will always be.
Tuff it out, girl! :)
