There's nothing wrong with it, my first character was a guy because he emulates myself, but I've made several female characters as well. You should try it sometime, it's fun being something that you aren't in real life. (That's why we play games anyway, isn't it?)

I have an equal number of male and female characters - You need them to create a proper family in legacy.

The first time I played a female toon was in WOW. I played a Night Elf druid and decided to roll a female because this was going to be my main healer. To be perfectly honest, I got tired of the following...

- Guys asking me if I was a girl IRL... all the time. Some of them didn't believe me even when I said I was a guy "You're probably a hot girl and you just don't want the guys to flirt with you!"

- Guys flirting with me, because they assumed I was a girl IRL.

- Guys asking to cyber, because again, if I'm playing a girl toon, I must be a girl IRL!


Anyway, I stopped playing that toon and have played male characters since. IMO, in TOR, it makes more sense due to companion relationships. I certainly don't need Corso or Aric trying to get into my pants all the time.

I don't think anything of it.
I am female and I have been playing video games since Atari, so I have played as a lot of male characters over the years, as sometimes you do not get a choice. And of course, it's already been mentioned that there are popular video games with female leads that I am sure males have played and enjoyed.
Yes, you do get a choice in this game, and most of my characters are female, but I do have one male character (and planning another.) I play them all as characters in a story, not as myself. I do talk as myself in chat, but I am just here to play the game with people, not get intimate, so I do not understand why it would bother anybody.

Guess what? I am not an Imperial Agent in real life either.

Doesn't matter in the slightest. Play whatever you're comfortable with. I play both sexes all the time on my account. My Sage/Sorc are female, and yet my Jedi/Warrior are male. Etc etc. Doesn't matter in the slightest. I actually encourage you to play both, because they have different dialogue choices which makes it fun to listen to.

Rule of thumb.... Assume all players are dudes, then when you join a guild with a vent you might be pleasantly surprised to find out that dude was a girl.

Does it really matter?
The question to be asked is why are you having an issue with this?
It's a virtual world. Male, female, child, pensioner. You might even be talking to a heshe.
If you are looking for a date, there are plenty of sites out there. Using an MMO is probably not the best source of boy on girl action.

I don't care what they are in R/L. This is a video game not a dating site. No reason to treat anyone differently in this setting. If someone is nice to you, be nice back. If they are mean, then you be mean right back to them. lol Or /ignore of course.
Main point is this is a video game set in a fantasy world. Leave all the EHarmony and/or Manhunt motives for being here offline.
