    The gender reversal might also have to do with my past frustration of being a girl. I mean, I'm attracted to guys, but when I was little I felt like guys had more fun and were more free to be themselves than girls. I was a tom boy, so people were always telling me that I should act or dress more like a girl, that I should do this or not do that.

    Now, I'm completely happy and comfortable with being a woman, and I don't change genders in dreams as often.
    Yeah, I think I agree with you a lot here. My friends said jokingly that I was probably bisexual or something, which isn't the case, but I do think it has something to do with identifying well with the other gender. I'm not the most feminine girl, and I think I like it like that. It never feels like a bad thing to be a guy in my dreams.

    Actually, I have weird, movie-like dreams too, where there's plot and characters and stuff. Like, in one dream, I was a guy that started a revolution or resistance against something, and then later in the dream I was a different character, a girl who was enthralled by the work of the guy I was earlier and rallied a huge mob for the cause.

    Strangely enough, I usually have most of my physical characteristics as a girl (blonde, blue-eyed, rather pale), but as a guy I'm almost always a tan brunette.

    maybe the gender isn't as significant as the implications of character? perhaps this dark, masculine figure is a facet of yourself?
    oh, and i'm a girl that likes girls, and i have never dreamt i was male.
