Many people have suggested I change my avatar. Some feel it is intimidating. I choose the red shoe because, first of all, red is my favorite color and secondly, I think it's sexy. Can I say that? LOL Okay here's the deal; I'll tell you want I think I'm like. I'm very intelligent, voluptuous, very hot and cool. (LOL no one needs to stroke my ego). I like history, geography, philosophies,languages, and religion (although I don't ascribe to any religion). If anyone felt I was trampling on them that was not my intention. I just happened to like that red shoe. A really hot and cool avatar is needed. What do you think?

I always liked your avatar. It looks like a woman who's sure of herself, and it's not a silly spiky thing you can't run in if you have to.

Best thing I like about avatars is I can change 'em with my mood.

I like the red shoe. Years ago my brother came up with a set of rules. Rule no. 7 is if you don't like something he's doing or has done then leave. His version was a little harsher but you get the idea. If someone doesn't like the avatar don't take the quizzes then you don't have to look at the avatar. Those people should also consider themselves very lucky since their lives are in such good shapes that they worry about such silly things as other people's avatars.

Your choice of course, but it reminds me of something bad from my childhood. Of course that's me, not you

Why would someone think a shoe is intimidating?

On second thought maybe a muzzle.

It's none of my business, I don't really want to know, if it was one of you I don't mean to offend, but...

I can't imagine anyone thinking it was any of their business to tell anyone what they should or shouldn't use as their avatar....whether they like it or not. I'm truly surprised anyone told you that.

However, red tights and red shoe is a bit tacky, according to Joan Rivers. I'm guessing maybe a bare foot with some nicely painted toenails in a shiny red would look nice.

Personally, I very much like it.

How about a red, antique, globe?

Keep the shoe ... as if you care what anyone else thinks about your avatar.

It's gorgeous and sexy.

I'm with Jank as far as anyone having the nerve to tell you to change your avatar.

I love your avatar and if it fits you personally....why on earth would you change it? Only your vote counts anyway!

I didnt think my response here was disrespecting, overtly sexual,expletive language, threatening or harassment.
Why was is deleted?

Why change an avatar you already like alot....I vote for you keeping your red shoe avatar.

I think the intimidating impression comes more from the tone and style of your political posts rather than the avatar, though i could see how someone might "interpret" your avatar that way, given the substance of your posts. The internet is so dependent on things like avatars, smily faces, etc. to convey meaning and messages in the absence of body language, tone, etc I can see how someone would easily add the avatar to their determination of what your character must be like. I would change it to soften your image a bit, but I personally don't care either way. I think it has more to do with your writing style than anything "probably". My two cents, but I seem to be in the minority on this one.

I love that shoe, I think it is absolutely stunning and has Beverly written all over it.

The thing is, your avatar has become synonymous with YOU. I change mine occasionally - but it is always some version of Big Bird, since I feel that has become synonymous with me. Why change it? It is you. Skimming down a list of avatars, anyone who cares knows just where your post is. Leave it alone.

When I first saw your posts and Sploofus ID, I thought of Matron Mama Morton, from Chicago. A healthy woman who has a private, caring side, but who takes no $#!@ off anyone. The red shoe is what she would wear for 'special' occasions. If I'm correct, keep it. If I ever move to platinum, I may switch to the caricature I use on my home-page, but for now, Pi is an old math symbol, so it's who I am.

Of course you should keep it! Miriam

The Red shoe stays; at least until I go platinum and can upload another red shoes of choice or can find another red shoe in the avater. Thank you so much for your opinions; you all have cleared up the conundrum. I care; and am very fiery in my tone at times;only because I care. Above all, I love each and everyone of you.That's why I'm the Bigmama.

Thank you

You've taken 5 THOUSAND rate other people's quizzes often as 8 or even write tons of quizzes which you put out there regularly.

That means you are generous here at Sploofus, and supportive and uplifting toward other players. How a player rates other players is one of the first things I look at.

For me, that says everything. So I am always especially generous in response, toward you.

If you also love your self, feel confident, have strong opinions...there's no shortage of those qualities on this site. Lol.
