Now this is funny, because my wife also likes to punch things. To quote her: "I like to punch [poopies]" (edited for minors). In FFXI she was a Monk, the punching class, and is currently contemplating rolling something she can use fist weapons with after finding disappointment with her 70 priest, and her younger paladin.Either way, I don't find it unusual at all when women prefer more aggressive (maybe a better word is competitive) roles in a game. The fact that they play games regularly at all suggests to me there's a better chance they like a lot of the same things I do about games than traditionally feminine facets.That's probably it right there though, DPSers compete. "My numbers are bigger than yours". Healers and tanks can compete too, but generally people don't care about competitions like those anymore than profesonal chess or scrabble competitions. If you want to compete, you jump into the pool with the DPSers to get your own e-penis measured, even if you're a woman.I'd bet that you could imagine any woman in your life playing WoW, and know before they logged in the first time which kind of role they'd want to play. It's not defined by gender more than personality.I'll stop now before I hit page 2 of my comment :b
