Betrosexuals : The word betrayal only sexier

Are you a Betrosexual?

I've recently encountered the word and it caught my interest, I actually encountered it through work because of necessary research.

You may be a betrosexual once in your life but what exactly is it? As the title suggest, is it a person who get their kicks and fix by betraying people?
The answer is no but it's close to that.

A Betrosexual is actually a person who presents herself as the opposite sex over the internet. Meaning the first person on your facebook page could really be the opposite sex, unless you really know them.
There are a lot of Betrosexuals online, especially in chat rooms where people go when they want to have cyber sex without video... or something.

Before when MIRC was the only chat available, others would present themselves as the opposite sex to have online chat boyfriends and girlfriends.
Most Betrosexuals are actually homosexuals in real life. The percentage of gay men presenting themselves as women online is higher than lesbians presenting themselves as men, I know this because my two guy friends were actual victims. They felt betrayed and never spoke to their supposed online girlfriends... which of course made me crack up and whenever I think about it, I laugh. Cellphones back then were a luxury so MIRC was the hottest thing when it comes to socializing and social networks didn't exist yet, so people who were regular to MIRC chat probably know every line of codes and they have their own personal websites to present themselves to their chatmates conveniently.

Is it a bad thing?
I guess, since there was a gay man who was bludgeoned to the brink of life and death because he deceived he's online boyfriend and the boyfriend didn't really take it on the light side. But that deals more on the homophobic and barbaric side of the guy.

Not all betrosexuals stay that way. It's probably just a phase where a few of us go through especially in our contemporary world where a virtual world literally exists.
MMORPG like Gaia have a lot of betrosexual players, there are reasons why they want to present themselves as the opposite sex and who am I to question them?

Although it is clearly deceiving, I suppose it's harmless...
Is it safe to say that Betrosexuals are online trannies?
