I think gay men would feel even less compelled to use a woman in their avatars. That Steven Hero's avatar of Björk is ok IMO, too cause it is not recognisable on first sight...also things like Dong Fang Bu Bai who is sexually ambiguous would be ok. I have analysed this. I think that East-Austrians, i.e. core Austria: Upper and Lower Austria (including Vienna) -Ostarichi- are culturally a third Germanic a third Slavic and a third Italian. Of course I could be wrong cause self-discovery is a long-winded and stony path, but nontheless it is I believe a good pointer if one should ever encounter such a creature in ones daily affairs.
