How do you identify a catfish on GaG? There seems to be more men pretending to be women than the other way round, but nobody can tell that either, but only assume.
People will assume it's because of the way they talk or the things they say, but that only opens room for another point. Aren't you generalising by saying how a certain gender should talk or what things a certain gender should say? People are different.
Yes, there are men who are feminists and yes there are women who stick up far for men.
I propose an idea for GaG specifically for this:
People have to take a picture of themselves holding a notebook or a piece of paper with their GaG name written on it and @ GirlsAskGuys written on the paper and put that photo in a special location in their profile, much like a profile picture just in a different spot.
People who do this will gain a special membership status that will have it's own name. Perhaps "Validated Member" or "Special Member" or "Verified Gender Member" and perhaps make them gain Xper slightly more than normal members. That's the only difference between them. Normal members will not be cripped at all and whoever chooses not to do it will simply not do it.
This is a website where opposite genders ask each other questions and what catfishes do is destroy the purpose of this site.
I am aware that things can get photoshopped and it's unavoidable, but it still beats having no system at all. Another concern is transexuals or genderless people, which I think should be taken into consideration. People should be able to choose in addition to being a guy or girl that they are genderless or transexual.
If you want to take extra steps further (not necessary) you could have girls in the photos wear pink and guys wear blue, or just simply ask them to gesture something with their hands or fingers to represent a symbol of GaG. I know this sounds ridiculous, but this extra step is something I feel I should throw off along with everything I written here for the sake of completionism.
That would be kinda cool actually but I don't think we could literally get everyone to do it as some people on here might just be shy & not wanna show their faces as there are so many users without any display pics on here
And then if you're suspicious about someone you can always still just reverse search their imagine to check it that way..
I don't know what a catfish is, but there are plenty of people pretending to be the other gender, and even more people misrepresenting their age, which I would call a bigger concern, and then there are people hiding their fantasies behind a reasonable question, like taking advantage of their fetish being so banal, like do you like to take advantage of morning wood, then rolling around in the grimy details of each answer, soaking themselves through their shorts. What can you do about it? I don't know.
Copy their picture and drop it in the google image search box, the original link to that picture will show and let you know who's picture it belongs to, the more links the higher the chance that person is using a fake pic...
