Female characters never work for me. I cannot immerse myself into the game and its story if I have to pretend to be a girl.
Not even #4 is good enough reason for me to roll one. :P
16th Mar 2013, 8:00 PM
Personally, I'm a subscriber of the Maxim theory, and I'm not ashamed to admit it in the slightest.
16th Mar 2013, 8:13 PM
I think it should be n4 for most people.
But female chars just simply do not work for me. I can't remember a single time i rolled a female char and stuck with it.
Even when female has advantages , like smaller hitbox in FPSs or agile movements when you need a flag carrier.
I think all my chars i ever played was males (ofc where there is a choice, tomb rider has no choice:P).
16th Mar 2013, 9:10 PM
If (when playing WoW) you're staring at your character's ass the whole time, you're doing it wrong :D
16th Mar 2013, 9:10 PM
It could also be they just like how the character model looks or how armor looks on it, any attack animations etc. I know I play a male troll for my main even though I am female for the reason that I just like how male trolls look better. While I play my rogue as a female undead because the flips are so amusing! Female Orc warrior beause plate gear looks amazing on them "Asuming you wear a helm over dat face". I'm sure there are many reason people play the gender/race that they do.
16th Mar 2013, 9:31 PM
I'm the same as well, female irl and my main is a male troll. I also have a male belf(pally), but my lock, shaman and hunter and female(two cows and a forsaken).
16th Mar 2013, 10:33 PM
For me it's literally just a coin flip while I'm making the character ^_^
16th Mar 2013, 11:37 PM
It was #4 for me. Totally.
17th Mar 2013, 1:19 AM
i choose door number four there. [even though number one made me a sad panda.]
17th Mar 2013, 1:32 AM
Totally the Maxim theory. Or as I put it, "If I'm going to spend hours a day looking at pixels in the shape of an ass, I'd rather it be pixels in the shape of a woman's ass."
Using Jyo for that one illustrates it well, since the majority of my characters are female Draenei.
17th Mar 2013, 1:34 AM
17th Mar 2013, 1:51 AM
Yeah, i'm probably The Maxim theory as well... or a variation of it at least. Like, why I like watching anime where the central characters are female, its not just about how they look, but how they act
Of course, I have a mix, while in my total of characters, I have only one more female than Male, to date, I have lvl capped 2 males 1 female. My main is a guy (human male, original)
17th Mar 2013, 6:08 AM
I dont roll female characters because their sexy bodies would be too distracting for me. At least rolling a dude, I can feel in the game, and I can at lest feel more of a bond with my characters that isnt some creepy sexual thing.
17th Mar 2013, 8:21 AM
I'm female. Of the 11 chars I still play, 4 are male.
One of my DK's, my only Horde char, is a male orc. I just like how they look over the females...plus I absolutely LOVE their dance! ♥
My hunter is a male dwarf, since it just seems more fitting for a male to be it (my pally is also a dwarf, and is female).
My lock is a worgen male (druid is worgen female), because I love their menacing "run", which seems to fit in with the dark characteristics of warlocks.
And my mage is a gnome male, mainly because I like how they look moreso than females, but only just.
So I suppose I subscribe more to #4 than anything else. :)
17th Mar 2013, 1:13 PM
Um yea, I never understood why people use #4 as a reason to roll a female toon. Why of all places are you looking at the backside of your character instead of, you know, paying attention to the game world itself?? Pretty sad...
17th Mar 2013, 4:34 PM
I'll have to go with #5. Being a roleplayer i roll a female toon so i have to work harder to define the character and not just fall into the trap of being my own self as a character.
17th Mar 2013, 6:22 PM
I'd rename the #1 theory. It's more "Pathologically Misogynistic" than feminist. I'm a feminist and don't make assumptions that every action performed by every male is with misogynistic intent, so that's kind of an offensive generalization. I suppose for most people it's what you most comfortably identify with when choosing a character's gender.
17th Mar 2013, 10:21 PM
Well, generalization is kind of the theme of this comic, heh. (obviously there are many more than just those 4 reasons)
Feminists accuse us of being "Pathologically Misogynistic" when playing female characters (and a few other choice words I cannot mention here), hence why I called it the "feminist theory". (heck, that's where I got the idea). They can get downright hostile over vent when the subject comes up.
18th Mar 2013, 12:41 PM
You find it that comment offensive? What about those of us who find it offensive that ultra-feminists accuse us of theory one? And they do accuse us of that, you cannot deny that. So don't play that "I'm offended" card, because you're two steps behind the rest of us.
17th Mar 2013, 6:29 PM
Yeah, definitely #4 for me... XD
17th Mar 2013, 6:35 PM
what if I'm a girl rolling to play a male character? My "third main" was an orc male and I played him even more than my original main character.
17th Mar 2013, 10:26 PM
Well, considering that is the greatest "minority" in the game, its pretty much a null subject. In my years playing the game I only met one girl guildmate who played a male as a main. There were others that played male toons, but only because they had an army of alts and they clearly favored variety in races/classes/genders, but their mains were all still female.
17th Mar 2013, 8:13 PM
I don't think I'm any of these reasons... maybe #4? I hate most of the character models in the game because I don't know or like anyone in real life that looks like that.
My main is a female tauren druid. I rolled the character in Vanilla, and I don't like the male model very much... slouching men with 7 feet wide shoulders don't seem very realistic to me, but the tauren female body type is real (albeit uncommon, they have the same body time as the girls I knew in high school that did track, volleyball, and soccer).
Of course I've spent all my time in bear form anyway, but I didn't know that when I rolled the character.
19th Mar 2013, 1:03 AM
For me, a lot from column 4, a lot from column 1, and a bit from column 3.
I originally played a male toon, and I got tired of looking at him. Might not have been as bad if I were playing in FPS perspective, but I found watching running female hips far more enjoyable than male hips. It's interesting that there's a term for it, because when people have asked why I play a female toon I've always answered exactly that phrase "If I'm going to be staring at the same backside for hours..."
From column 1, I enjoy watching a female toon fighting, working and dressing up (or undressing as the case may be). I've always been amused by the way a Tauren female as she's bending down to collect ore exhibits her right breast.
Column 3, the rebel. One time I met up in WoW with a female friend I knew from RL and she asked why I was playing a female Tauren. I replied "To prove that women and tauren CAN be engineers!". She said "I like the way you think.". Back then there was no Tauren engineer trainer, and no zep linking TB to Org, with the nearest Engie trainer being at Ratchet. Nowadays Tauren engies are a dime a dozen. :(
19th Mar 2013, 3:52 PM
I have about half male and half female ratio with my toons. I try to envision a persona when creating a toon and choose all appearance options (including gender) to match.
20th Mar 2013, 3:05 AM
I roll a female because Male Protagonists have been used so much that it has just gotten dull.
22nd Mar 2013, 8:54 AM
I take it you don't watch much anime, heh...almost the other way around there.
22nd Mar 2013, 1:00 AM
Personally, I roll male or female based on the character. There are a lot of races where I don't like the male model (human, orc, and draenei come to mind), and generally I'll pick whatever I feel best suits the character.
22nd Mar 2013, 8:48 AM
Just wondering about #1, wouldn't that make somebody more of a sadist than a masochist? Or am I missing something?
22nd Mar 2013, 9:05 AM
Both words mean pretty much the same thing, except one is sexual in nature while the other is not.
24th Mar 2013, 12:25 PM
No, they can both be sexual, or not. Sadism is deriving pleasure from *inflicting* pain, masochism is deriving pleasure from *receiving* pain. They are complementary, but in no wise are they the same.
4th Aug 2013, 6:27 PM
Most of my toons are female because I like looking a females (though it doesn't entirely work with druids since much of the time is spent in a gender neutral form). Horde-side especially has a posture issue (orcs, trolls & forsaken tend to slouch).
29th May 2015, 6:41 AM
That is NOT a Femmist theory. Femminists believe in equality between men and women.
