This is Star Wars, not e-Harmony, it doesn't matter in the least.

Don't care really. In WoW half my chars were female and I am male. In this game I identify with my characters too much to play female chars, but if someone wants to its not my business.

On the flip side, its pretty sad that it comes to it, but I can understand why a female player might wish to be thought of as male...some gamer guys are creeps.

I'm this way in more ways than one in this game. For instance, I tried to make a body type 1 Asian man with white long hair and the foo man choo mustache and beard the other day because I thought it would make a good Sentinel, but after playing half way through Tython, I just couldn't do it. There's nothing wrong with short Asian people in general, but I couldn't relate and I wasn't having as much fun because of it. I can't make a body style 4 male for the same reason.

Actually since there are more girls playing in TOR and even video games that may not be a good rule of thumb. There are more of us girls playing than you might imagine nowadays.

Yeah. I guess the better suggestion would be to assume no one in the game wants you to flirt with them and/or cyber and just concentrate on playing the game itself.

Something else -- that is, "ignore it and play the game."

That's a good rule of thumb. Any player could be a boy or girl, but likely none of them are there looking for romantic attention (unless they say so). Both boys and girls can enjoy or dislike any part of this game; which they are doesn't really change how they should be treated.

Personally i dont care what people do it is a game nothing weird about making a female character as a male and nothing wrong with a female making a male character. Keep in mind the story has slight alterations depending on gender.

It's pretty normal, although I wouldn't go assuming that every female toon in the game is a guy. There are lots of women who game; some of us play female toons, some play male toons, and some play a mix. I've played female toons pretty much exclusively and only rarely do I run into creepers, which I think speaks well of the people who play (or I could just be incredibly lucky). At any rate, most of the guys I know who play female toons are married.
Course the main thing is, that no matter who they are or what their reason for playing a particular gender, be respecful and non-creeperish. Ta da, problem solved.
aren't you a little short for a stormtrooper?
