it really depends on the class/race Im playing. My paladin is human female (not blonde lol) my rogue is undead female because they look best in higher end armor in my opinion. My shaman is an orc male, because female orcs look like garbage no matter what class they are.

I play male, coz it makes for extremely confusing situations if a guy plays a chick.

I like to play female because I'm a manipulative bastad who likes to control women.

No not really. I just like to be in the continued presence of sexiness

I've never played a female toon. IMO, people play them to get free things from Male players (this has been going on for years and years). I personally think it's dishonest. I generally won't believe a female toon is a woman unless I at least Teamspeak/Ventrillo with her/him. That is how you find out now adays...I had a friend who (even though he had a girlfriend) got all excited when he started "in game dating" some toon. A few days in, they were out for a nice picnic on a planet in SWG, when the guy confessed and laughed alot. There are wierd people out there...

No you mean you'd play them to get free stuff from morons. If you are playing a MMORPG you need to understand that the majority of toons are not representive of the people they are playing. I've known many a female player who plays a male or female toon same goes for guys.

If you seriously think that you can determine someones sex from the toon they play then you will be in for a rude awaking. Besides only pervs and child molestors try to hit on video female toons. Probably the same perverted morons who think phone sex operates are all easy hot babes.

Well, DUH!

Actually I'd prefer Carmella Decesare, but the principle is sound. Women are sleek and sexy and look great no matter how much or little clothing they wear, while naked men are lumpy and hairy and should not be seen by the light of day.

I play a female character. I rather look at a female character than a guy all day. I use the name KristineFury cause i thought it would be a cool name for a female chracter. I got the name from the movie Christine from stephen King. The car is Christine and it is a plymouth Fury
