I keep giving my timestamped pictures to guys who want to join female-only communities.

Do you dislike these females attempt at creating such a group? What entertainment value does it yield to sabotage their idea? Is there more to knowing other people are pretending they are you?
One thing I don't get though; how has that group not noticed that your pic has regularly been applying, perhaps even multiple times at the same time to their group? Is there something I'm misunderstanding here?
"Do you dislike these females attempt at creating such a group?"
A little bit. I implied above that I dislike exclusivity.
"What entertainment value does it yield"
It's a bonding experience with the guys in question. It's like I'm on their side instead of being part of "team girl". If they manage to pull off a good "troll" that's also a bonus.
"how has that group not noticed that your pic has regularly been applying"
The chat group was a one off thing that only lasted for a few days. The other times I've lent my picture it was for online games and forums. So only one time per community.

I think they are transcending gender boundaries and getting a look at "the other side". Seeing what it's like.
The weird thing is that they are better at it than I am.
Well no, because they're telling secrets under false pretense. Everyone in the chat is trusting that the others are who they say they are, ie females. Its not a male's discussion. I wouldn't say its 'not for male ears' because we all took biology and the like, so we know about periods, cramps, bloating, etc...
But there's an understanding being violated with it. A "We all can share and we're all here to help" while a dude lurks in the corner giggling.

I apologize; When I think about it there's nothing explicitly sexist about your statement. The way you phrased it is very common among misandrists though so I guess I jumped the gun.
That's quite alright, I'm pretty bad at phrasing in general. It's easier in real life where people know I don't mean anything by it.
I think I'd make a pretty bad misandrist, though.

I get the feeling you've got rather complicated feelings about "Team Girl".
EDIT: Again, apologies if I'm too blunt.

If it was secret they wouldn't discuss it in a chat room full of strangers. It doesn't become confidential or a safe space just because everyone is female. Any one of those women could be a troll taking screen shots and looking to stir things up.

Not trying to defend myself by the way, I admit that I was up to no good. Just want to clear out any misunderstandings.

You are a spy for the patriarchy, and are assisting male infiltration into female spaces.
You are not a dick, you are an agent of goodwill.

Eh, no big deal I think.

I think the most important question is why did you help them?

"Because they're my friends" isn't acceptable to me. I'd appreciate some insight.

Also, here's something fairly random [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=C_rttgtyigc].

Just because I'm super bored right, now I will give you my opinion.

That's a deceptive thing to do, but ultimately harmless.

There, I added nothing to this conversation lol.

Young adults in their twenties. Not sure about the scammed world of warcraft players though.

Men aren't in a conspiracy together. Trust me.

I think that's the student housing in Uppsala. I'm glad I don't have to put up with that.

I never get cat-called on the streets or harassed in online games, and no one has inadvertently "fallen in love" with me. But when I lend my image to guys these things start to happen.

I'm guessing you either have some kind of issue with homosocial women, or you place a lot of stock in winning the approval of your male friends. Bear in mind, most guys are primarily homosocial as well. The idea that pretending to be a girl online counts as transcending gender boundaries kind of indicates that your friends might have had pretty strict gender boundaries to begin with. It's hardly maximum genderfuck.

But ultimately, what you're doing is pretty harmless.

erttheking responded so I assume that combination of words you put down makes sense in some context but I have no clue what you're asking.

Am I old? Is this my turning point where I don't know what them darn kids are talking about nowadays?
Old forms of timestamped photos has been around for years ... usually in the past as a highly secure and indirect means to show loved ones those who get kidnapped are still alive without having to use live connections. Makes it easier to get ransom. Particularly if you can show a clear chronological progression of visible injury and negligence due to a lack of correspondence <.<

Funnily enough almost used in the same vein here...

One day I was reading a contact thread with a friend of mine. In the thread some girls were assembling a girls-only chatroom, they required that you post a picture of yourself before joining. My friend asked me if I could give him a picture of myself so he could join it. I sent him a picture of myself and he started chatting with these girls. They just talked about periods though so he left pretty soon. But I kept doing it with other friends; Giving them pictures of myself so they could pretend to be girls on the internet for various purposes, including joining female-only forums, but also convincing guys in videogames to give them free stuff. We have done it on four different occasions now. My friends are more ruthless than me so they can use my looks better than I ever could.
Oh, wow. You're a dick.

As long as they aren't using them to by dicks, as far as you know, then you aren't being a dick.

Maybe a bit too trusting, but not a dick.

I question the need for such things existing. Like, I wouldn't be shy or weird talking about male issues with a co-ed chatroom. Maybe society puts more of a shame tinge on things like periods and whatnot but still, I don't think fencing off yourself does anything to fix the issue. The internet is supposed to be the kind of place where you anonymously ask about how to use a butt-plug without shame and whatnot, this kinda misses the point entirely lol. Maybe it's full of internet newb normies who use their real names and pictures everywhere and don't get it? Ah well...

Well, to be fair, I never thought that gender segregated communities are that common enough to warrent such a thing. I've visited a few radfem circles on tumblr back in the day and even those people wernt paranoid enough to check the genitals of each newcomer.

Makes you wonder what percentage of users lie about their gender in their respective groups. Imagine 12% of NEETs and MGTOWs being female Harvard sociology and psychoanalysis researchers in disquise.

I suspect that there are more than 12% female NEETs even without troll accounts. I know two girls who used to be NEETs. I was one for six years.

If the guys are actively being dicks and you know about it, it's a bit dickish. It's like knowing about a hole in the locker room, and leading other girls by it and boys to the other end as well. But ultimately if they're more so just curious, I don't see the total harm in it. It's dishonest, which from a pride standpoint I don't care for, but it's the internet, if I said I was a purple dinosaur on here, and I got to join the purple dinosaur club because of it, I'm not preventing anyone else from joining the club, and if I'm not out to hurt anyone it's not like I'm hurting anything. As for getting free stuff in games, it's a bit malicious, but anyone that would just randomly give stuff in a game to a girl probably needs a wake up call anyway for being that desperate.

With the whole "what do girls talk about when boys aren't around," I'm assuming it's roughly the same as what guys talk about when girls aren't around. It's just a space you feel more comfortable sharing some information with than others. I also don't tell my guy friends a lot of my anxiety and depression issues just because I feel less comfortable talking about that with them than I do the girls I know. You feel more likely to open up about different things with the different people in your life, differing mostly on how you've grown to interact with them, and the guys in my life we interact in a more destructive manner towards ourselves and each other, and the girls we interact in a more productive manner, building each other up and trying to actively help each other out. I myself need both, the reality check of my guys, and a chance to build myself up with the girls. Maybe I'll meet a few guys that can make me feel good about myself, and a few girls I feel comfortable enough to endearingly call "******," but as things are, my interactions are as they are right now, and I don't feel the rush to change that. Maybe that's sexist of me, maybe I'm furthering the gay agenda, maybe I'm enabling the patriarchy. Ultimately, I don't fully care, I imagine there aren't too many girls that would line up for the degrading I give to my guy friends, nor many guys willing to open up enough to hear about and show genuine care for another guy out there, so I feel I'm doing everyone a service in delegating my bullshit as much as possible. In theory I think it's important to tear down these barriers, and break these chains of love, and open up to people only differentiating on their personality, rather than sex organ, but in practice, it can be a bit more difficult for some people, and I don't think it's inherently a bad thing either to have some circles that you act differently with. People are complicated, and no one other individual will ever be capable of getting you on a deep enough level and being tolerable enough with that you can be everything that you are around them. You need more groups of friends really.

Oh, it's always been mostly guys. Of course it has happened, because as with all shitty stereotypes there's some basis in reality, but it's never as widespread as people are wont to think.

As for the thread proper, the buzzword drop of "misandrist" is all I need to know that my input here really won't matter that much.
