I've encountered some players which I could swear there toon is not the same sex as when they play, by what they say and how they act etc. When encountering a player that does choose this, what are you supposed to think? Judge them in some way? or something else?

I don't think anything. Shoot, my 4 year old son created a female character (he doesn't really play, mind you - he just likes to run around and click buttons). I figure, they're paying - they can make it whatever they want.

Most female toons are guys anyway. It's all about which backside you'd rather stare at

I am playing a female character, she is an Imperial Agent. I just like the way she looks, nothing wrong with that. If blokes wouldn't play female characters, 95% of people running around would be male, and that would suck.

New to MMOs? This is a common occurance. Hell, half the 'female' toons in my guild are played by male players (and two of the 'male' toons are played by the wives of two of the 'female' toons players).

You can never assume a character's gender matches that of the player in an MMO

You are so right.

I figured out after leveling a male dwarf hunter to 85 in that other MMO, I would only roll females. I got tired of staring at a male butt very quick.
