Mini Rant about Girly Voices

Permanent Linkby Chameleonette on Mon Sep 09, 2013 12:09 pm

So.

Last night (or maybe it was early this morning), I uploaded my first part of a new Let's Play, after not having done any LPing for over a year now. And I was excited to try to get back into it and give my vocal chords a little stretch with doing commentary.

I posted around a bit on sites I frequent to let a few friends know that I was getting back into it. And I got a YouTube private message about it:

"why your voice not even girly?? arent u girl?? u lying to us?"

I take criticisms seriously and all feedback is taken into consideration, but... I can't do anything about my own voice. I'm not going to purposely try to make a higher-pitched sound and become uncomfortable just because someone doesn't think my voice is girly enough. I've never had a girly/cute voice, I never will, and I see nothing wrong with having a voice like mine. I don't think I sound like a man, though apparently others see this differently.

This would lead me into a much worse rant about how sexualized females are nowadays, but I'll pass on that. Instead, I'll just say that this doesn't really make me feel good about trying to come to terms with being who I am and how I am. I'd like to think that there's a lot more to me than how attractive my voice sounds.

It's just really disappointing that this is the first 'feedback' I get, and it's complaining about something I was born with and going so far as to call me a liar about being female because my voice isn't feminine enough.

Haha, well, we'll see. I probably lost my viewer base already after having abandoned my other LP for a year after I lost the damn save data. A few people who used to watch came out of the woodwork, though, so it was nice to see them again.

I just feel a little more self-conscious now, I guess. I never would have thought my voice would be an issue.

I'm sorry to hear about your issue, and - despite not having watching your LP's - I'll swing by and see if you can hook me as a returning viewer. ;P
I'm sure nothing's wrong with your voice - people just have the weirdest expectations.
The only voices that bother me are modulated... like... you know GaijinGoomba, the host of GameExchange? THAT voice annoys me.
I'm sure you sound perfectly lovely.

I figure the person in question must be a new viewer from somewhere, since no one had complained about my voice in my last LP. Ah well. I guess there's always going to be people like that.

I'm not a practiced or experienced LPer, though, so I can't guarantee great things. To be perfectly honest, the thing that motivated me into LPing was the fact that I'm NOT good at speaking and struggle with it. I'm hoping it will help me improve over time. (That, and I love to share gaming experiences.)

Though I'm not familiar with GaijinGoomba, I did encounter a few voices that were really aggravating/grating on the nerves. But I definitely don't leave them comments complaining about it or anything.

I have no experience whatsoever with LPs, but to hell with anybody who complains about your voice. You should talk the way that feels best for you.

People sure do love to complain! For them, it probably makes them feel more satisfied to just say whatever pops into their head, rather than just moving along. Complaining about someone's voice is pretty nitpicky and pointless. You can either ignore it (they've probably already forgotten about the comment), or make fun of it! Troll them right back.

@indighost - Yeah, I agree. I was hard-pressed not to send them a message back that just said "screw you" or something, in the heat of moment. Probably better just to ignore it and carry on as I have been.

@Saftkeur - That's true! If it's not one thing another. I've had a complaint before along the lines of "never do that voice again" in response to a voice I tried to give a character, and the SAME person, before that, requested for me to try some voice acting. I couldn't win. LOL. (I did choose to ignore it. In the long run, I think it's better than taking it to heart or getting angry over it.)

What a great guy. He clearly has a background in audio.

If an LPer has a good voice that's clear and not grating, that's what matters. I can listen to forty hours of a tolerable, featureless voice because the sex behind it isn't important. Only the content. I can only tolerate four seconds of a grating "girly" voice or obnoxious "manly" voice, even if the content is amazing. I still haven't seen Psychonauts just cause the LPs I've found are all filled with awful voices. So, don't feel bad. At least you're actually contributing something instead of posting sexist comments trying to neg your way into a cyber-girl's pants. XD

Yeah, no kidding. lol

I agree. I listen to both male and female LPers and as long as they don't go out of their way to be intolerable or release various crude noises constantly in attempt to get laughs, then I can deal with it. Thanks for the vote of confidence, though. I'll try not to take the comment to heart too much. Quite frankly, I don't care whether he believes I'm female or not. I'm not here to impress him or prove anything to him. I do LPs for fun.
