So you're saying you guys ignored your mother's cooking or you tossed it every chance you got. Or both. We just hid what we didn't want on the little shelf under the expandable formal dining table. Well, my brothers did until I saw them do it one day and hid my second egg. oops

Given that the alternative to eating mom's iggie "cooking" was to cook for ourselves, we ate it. The most objectionable bits were passed under the table to our dog, who sometimes wouldn't eat it either. Mom eventually admitted she couldn't cook and we took to complaining openly about her attempts to kill us with her kitchen "skills". It would take a pretty horrific meal to overcome the joy I'd get from complaining about it.

National Public Radio was born just months before me, and is nearly the only radio network I've listened to since birth. I would take brief forays out into shortwave to listen to HCJB in Quito Equador, or further up the FM dial to catch Ron Cuzner's Jazz program, but I always returned to NPR via WUWM or WHAD.

Ah. PB. Public Broadcasting. I barely watch PB at night these days and I haven't listened to PB radio in decades. I was too busy burning up the airways on my CBs. They called me Double D. Short for Devil's Delight. 👼

My mom’s cooking stunk but I didn’t know until I grew up.

I figured it out the first time Dad cooked dinner.

She boiled food too much, and didn’t use enough salt.

The resonance (and size) of the larynx makes the difference between a male and a female voice. Even if you scream for hours and smoking 15 cigars at once - everyone who is not an idiot will recognize you as a female. Just dont know how many idiots are out there. :)

A LOT of idiots .. most of them in SL. even I can tell the difference between a female and a male on voice chat.

Voice training can produce some remarkable results, both for female-to-male and male-to-female.  I've heard people speak in opposite-gender voices that are totally convincing.  At least to me, which could possibly make me an idiot.

If you have known anyone who has transgendered either way, you would be amazed at what hormone replacement will do on its own.  Especially F-M.  Add in a little work with a voice coach and ... well I guess they make an idiot of everyone.

The issue is the internet is becoming full of catfishes, scamming people about who they really are. For example, if you go to afk sex spots they're mostly men playing female avatars to get that linden from other men that are desperate enough to pay for it. Bad enough linden labs try's to support this issue by making Voice changers with Premium Membership.

Though, if the scamming continues I wouldn't be surprised if someone scripted a listener to confirm what gender you are on Profile.

Not outright telling people something that's not their buisness -= scamming.  Mhm. Okay. 

Although, hold up. If you go to an afk sex place, why does the gender of the person behind that avatar matter at all? I mean, aren't they supposed to... you know.. not be there?

Dude. If you could script such a thing, it would have been done already, I'm sure. There's enough guys out there who'd piss themselfes at the possibility of accidentally hitting up another guy.

If you're concerned about getting fooled by that horrid LL voice morpher, or that a guy might have made that bot you're banging, you probably shouldn't be trying to score in SL.

I guess I don't understand just what they are getting with their scam.  In other words, I can't wrap my head around why it could be called a scam at all.  Could I be swindled out of a pleasant conversation?  I'm at losing anything because someone is more comfortable if I call them ma'am?

I can sort of understand wanting what you want out of a relationship but I just don't grok in fullness the amount of vitriol and the paranoia of maliciousness where none is clearly intended.

Maybe I'm the weird one, tho.  I can understand that much easier.

Pleasant conversation of lies.  This is exactly how Americans food is being handled in America.  For example, american food is full of hidden ingredients that is causing obesity. However, american community allows it because its just a pleasant dish. This is same faulty logic.

Catfishes are doing the same crap leading men on with their faulty product acting like they're selling the same thing. When those desperate men, really just wanna do is chat with a women.

That is perhaps why you can't see why they're being swindled you just don't get bad business.

You're funny. Keep going.

By the way, gentlemen, yes, we do get this all the time. This guy is everywhere, up in your face, demanding your gender, claiming rights on your RL self and comparing his rocks and the getting off of them to a public health campaign. We weren't making it up. Ironically, this guy always seems to accuse me of being a man just at that time of the month when I really, really don't have the patience for it. If only it were RL and I could slap a sanitary towel across his mouth.

If we seem irritable, wary or just plain bloody bored, this is why. On the plus side, this is the competition.

You may be suffering from a serious misapprehension of what paying a woman to talk dirty to you involves.

Or just comparing Cat-fishers on SL to American food companies that are selling bad products. The issue is the customer just doesn't know what they're really buying. =3 

Though, I guess you could call a lot of Fast Food companies as well cat fisher to. For example then McDonald french fries been getting a closer look at.

Then why don't you limit yourself either to paid escorts who will voice to your satisfaction, or RL chatlines where, for some reason, the fear of voice morphers doesn't seem to be a problem?

That doesn't really fix the issue and I doubt there's really a solution just yet for cat-fishing. Just like america's busted food industry of hidden ingredients. Just gotta give it time for someone to think of something.
