Hello everyone, KGold here, and I'd like to share my really strange experience with you guys!

When I noticed that the pre-release version of Minecraft 1.8 was out, I updated it immedately, and entered one of my worlds. Everything seemed totally normal, I didn't see any changes to the look of the game. But then...

The first thing I noticed was the color of my skin. WTF it used to be a bit darker. What happened?
I LOOKED LIKE THIS
Then I hit F5, and realized that something isn't completely right...
I LOOKED LIKE THIS
Then I hit F5 again and my mouth fell open in horror!!!
I LOOKED LIKE THIS!!!!

I WAS A GIRL!
Errr...I seriously don't know what had happened, I swear I didn't change the file of my skin, and I'm not using any mods or resource packs. But yeah, I was a girl.
I got really interested in this "phenomenon", and asked my friend, Eyex to log into the game and take a peek at his skin. Surprisingly, he wasn't a girl. Everything was okay.
We had the idea to examine the differences between the two games. Same version, same map, the only thing that wasn't the same was the username.
So we tried out several usernames, and after many attempts, we realized that changing the name to KGold causes this effect. After further experiments, we found a strange bug.

Explanation:
If your username contains K and G capitals, all other letters are lowercase letters, and consists of 5-7 letters, then your skin will be automatically replaced with that of a girl.
Here are some examples that will work:
KGold
GKold
yxyGK
KxxGx
(If you want to achieve this for sure, than go on a Superflat world)

So, Mojang decided to add genders to Minecraft?
What do you think about all this? Please try it out by yourselves, and if you find a better explanation, or if you just want to share your experience with us, please write a comment!

Thanks for reading!

OH, AND I LOOKED LIKE THIS...
AND THIS!

Thank you for the pop reel!

Thanks to all commenters for informing me! What I wrote was only my personal experience, and I didn't know all this when I was writing this blog.
