Do you really believe what you're saying? I've met more men in this game who will flirt with a female toon without knowing the players sex than you can shake a stick at. It doesn't matter if I tell people I'm female or not, I still get hit on.I am luckier than most of my gamer-girl counterparts in that I prefer Gnomes & Dwarves to Night Elf, Human, & Drainei characters. For some reason, short ones don't get hit on as much, but I'm fine with that. I still get it now and then, but it's nothing I can't handle. I've been playing MMO's since I was 12 years old, and I've gotten used to brushing off advances with grace.However, the few times I've played my Night Elf (Druid) & Drainei (Shaman), I have had MANY unwelcomed advances. From marriage proposals (kinda' sweet), to "wanna' cyber?", I've seen it all, whether people know I'm a real life woman or not.I think you need to sit down, roll a female Night Elf, and count the number of times you get hit on as you level to 20th level. I think you'll be surprised. And as for "don't play the game"....I have as much of a right to play this game without being harassed as you do. That's like telling someone of a different ethnicity "don't play if you don't want to be called *insert awful racial slur here*".
