Gender-bait is a term used by William Gibson in his 2003 novel Pattern Recognition[1] for the practice of some males who represent themselves as females online to elicit a positive response from other males. This is most common in Internet forums and massively multiplayer online role-playing games.

The term gender-baiting has been in use at least since 1992,[2] mostly in the sense similar to race baiting.
