I pretend everyone is a dude lol

I'm a lady in real life and all my characters are ladies. I don't get bother that much but that might be because my charcters are actually with someone and I don't wear the slave outfits. I have worn the tops I just don't particulary like the shorts on them.

My guild knows I'm a lady.

I also assume when I see a female toon they are female and if male a male until proven otherwise as I know both play the game.
A southern girl is a girl who knows full well that she can open a door for herself but prefers for the gentleman to do it because it demonstrates a sense of respect. Guild Roleplays:

Well I haven't been bugged yet, but was level 2 when I was asked to join a group, suppose I shouldn't have went with blue eyed freckled red head imperial agent.

I suppose the good thing is there seems to be very few on the Asia RP PVE sever.

Excluding myself there are two other people in my guild that are female that I know of. I don't really make it a habbit to go around asking everyone's gender, but there you go. But yes, the majority of female characters are probably played by an adult male.

I do the same thing. If someone's character is female, I will refer to them as a "she" unless they correct me or I found out otherwise and vice versa.

So flirting as a male evil sith warrior got me no where, but flirting as a good female agent gives a fade to black?.

I haven't noticed anything odd when playing a female character. Not been hit on yet, at least...

Generally, I don't see the characters I play as "me" so it's no real problem playing female characters. Just like a character in a book, I guess.

I have a mix of male/female characters and have never really been bugged by playing either. However, I must admit, overall, so far, I feel the character story lines for flirting and such seem to work better when playing the male toons. But I imagine that's more a societal thing (men probably mostly drove development).

My female Smuggler got hit hit on a few times in pvp matches lol. But when I start typing...I think they realize I'm a guy.

Normally, I assume all toons are played by guys on the other end. When it turns out to be a woman it's a pleasant surprise.
