In a way all our avatars are just little tastes of who we are. We're representing ourselves just as honestly as you are.
Not about to search past the "new posts" tab, but I remember this board having a "post a pic of yourself" thread, if you really wanted to show your face.

As Lach said, an avatar is really just a form of creative expression, whether it's something you made, a photo you took, or just some picture you like. You don't necessarily need to justify the contents of your avatar beyond that. (You can also just have no avatar at all... if you're boring :V)
