I think people are misunderstanding something here.

If I'm acting like I've been taking disadvantage off then please read again.

I'm merely asking the populace to gather data cause finding different answers is quite fun.

Second of all, I was merely defending because quite frankly, I dislike your reaction towards the people who are simply too nice for you. At the very least, you would say that you're a guy if that's the case after the second time.

Once again, I can't stress enough that I'm not a victim. I'm simply a peacekeeper because from what it looks like, I can tell why the internet is a harsh place. And I definitely witness something that is quite laughable.

But hey, it doesn't matter anymore. I found my answer

Plus I know one thing, the more you age the more arrogant you are towards younger people.

I've always played a female avatar in games that give me a choice of gender solely because it's always seemed that the designers behind the game put more effort into making the female form look appealing and smoother whereas the male body has always been blocky, or overly bulky. If the character is given a voice i.e. Mass Effect the female voice actor for the most part does a better job of conveying emotions and subtle nuances in the dialogue.

So, better looking and better sounding = a more enjoyable game.

Ah I remember the good ol' days when I made a female character in Runescape to trick fellow players into giving me gold. Those were the good days.

Female because girl ass is more aesthetic than guy ass.
And I have no sympathy for anyone that tries to impress me with gold coins.

You mention that you feel sorry for female gamers nowadays because most gamers think that female characters are G.I.R.L and thus they don't get any respect. I started playing MMORPGs when I was young, about 10. For a fair amount of years I was naive enough to correct people when they referred to me using the wrong pronoun and the responses I got were just sad. People were convinced that it couldn't possibly be a female behind that computer screen and that it had to be a "G.I.R.L".

Nowadays there are times where I'll get indifferent responses and individuals will be both respectful and treat me as they would anyone else. There are other communities, however, that are just full of blatant assholes and they either treat you in an extremely condescending manner because they either feel inferior or they want to make you feel inferior simply because you're of a different gender and "that's not right or possible".

This is a topic I'm a bit "urgh" on simply because I've been watching the behaviours, attitudes and evolution of the way females are treated with disrespect for playing games and then the way certain females *coughcoughcamgirls* have taken advantage of the attention for money and are worshiped in turn. Get your shit together people. I tend to not comment on my gender in any shape, way or form unless I'm asked or a Steam user has added me through CR and is already aware.

Okay, anyway, topic at hand. I play female characters because I like to. I feel like I relate better, I enjoy taking my time to create a beautiful looking character that I'd be proud to show off and, let's be honest, there are many instances where female character customization is much more varied and entertaining than male character customization and, in turn, is more fun.

Lol i play as female characters because i can act myself when i play one. I am more effeminate than i am raging masculinity. Alot of male gamers feel the need to put on certain airs when they play male characters (i do not there for i prefer to play as female)

I always tell people i am a guy, and i never try to swindle people out of money. The people giving them free stuff are just as stupid as the one taking the free stuff.

In final fantasy ARR, i played a female miqo'te (i quit though) I enjoyed being able to play as an adorable character that i could design myself. i did it for no one else, but myself. 99% of the time, i give out free stuff, not take free stuff.
