Let me guess? You're male and straight, so you really don't have to deal with these issues. There's tons of reasons for gender or sexuality issues to be brought up, and most of them have nothing to do with people oversharing online. A lot of women pretend to be guys in game to avoid unwanted attention. A lot of gay people pretend to be straight, or at least, don't mention it, but it comes out. Personally, I play with my partner nearly 100% of the time I'm online. We don't feel the need to discuss it either, but because we always play together, people have asked, and we've answered honestly. We roll our eyes and ignore the trolls calling people fags or faggots in trade or guild chat, but it's hard. Little kids are the most homophobic demographic, and WoW is full of them.
