    I saw a thread going around about everyone's username and this is kinda related to that. I was wondering why you picked the avatar you have now and how you choose it. I'm struggling with representing myself in my avatar, without showing my own face or something I made myself (which is why I keep changing it so often).

    I like my avatars to relate to my username. Since I hadn't bothered putting one up, I thought now was a good time.

    It's a drawing of how I saw myself, with a pair of kitty ears because I like cats, and a pen because I like drawing.

    Mine is a silhouette of a marching band. Absolute favorite musical activity.

    I want to be judged (for better or worse) strictly for what I say. Nothing more.

    I took it specifically for my avatar way back in 2013. I’ll change it eventually but I really don’t look all that different now than I did back then so there’s no rush.

    I created it myself. It's a Yin-Yang symbol but with pink and blue instead of black and white. I chose it because of being non-binary I have a masculine side and feminine side, two complete opposites but existing in harmony.

    I was here when EC had its old site design/setup. You could pick from premade avatars as well as upload your own. One of the premade avatars was of Darth Maul from Star Wars. Since he is one of my favorite Sith characters, I chose him. Then when EC moved to the new platform, there was no premade avatar option, so I found a different picture of Darth Maul, so those who were still around from the old setup could still identify me easily.

    I contemplate changing it at points because I feel like people see it and think I'm either intimidating or scary if they don't know me that well on here (especially if they are unfamiliar with the character and just see a black and red creature staring at them) but then the other part of me is just too lazy to change it, plus it shows my love of Star Wars. On top of that, I've had the avatar so long its just become part of my identity here.

    Sooo mine is kinda hard to follow, I recently got Disney plus and over the past few months have been binging the Simpsons and I relate to this photo because it reminds my friends(and myself) of me right before I am about to something stupid late at night(I made this account really late at night). It also just looks like a vibe.

    It's a beach. I enjoy beaches. I didn't put a whole lot of thought into it I guess.

    I chose a picture of one of my favourite Pokemon, Reshiram. That nonchalant look on its face makes it cuter.

    Mine is a transgender colored phoenix, and I thought it was super cute. I might draw something and update it though.

    My dog is so much cuter than I am, so it was an easy choice.

    Mine is of me. I decided to use a picture of myself because in the last 2.5 years or so since I began my Transition, I’ve come to actually like my picture, and like getting it taken.

    lynn gunn is a true gay icon, and I kinda idolize her I guess because she's just so likable and kind!
