One of my best friends is homosexual, and he was one of the many people that got me interested in WoW. When I first started playing, he (like so many others!) had alt-holism: having about 20 characters below lvl 19 spread across 3 or 4 servers. What struct me as funny/difficult to deal with is that he always choose a girl to play as. It always created some interesting conversations when we grouped up for some questwith someone else and I told them that (what ever chick he was playing at the time) would be right back and he said to go ahead with out him. What followed would be the classic :He, I thought (name) was a she....? And I would then explain that my friend choose to play a girl, and no, I dont know why."What I find makes the Bloodelves character model to be slightly homosexual is that my friend choose to play as a male BE willingly. This was the first time that he had ever choosen a male character, and the whole reason why was he claimed that this model was "closest in resemblance to him." Some of his other friends that are homosexual have done the exact same thing: never created a male character until the BE come around.If Blizz really wanted to stop this stereotyping of BE males being homosexual, then they need to change the way that they stand. Hips cocked, chest puffed out, arms kinda dangling behind them.... it just seems so anti-masculine. Blizz should make an option to choose the posture, classic or combat, combat being he's like hunched over or somthing.

It'd be nice if we had more choice in our models. Sizes, posture, etc.I think your friend and a lot of others waited so long to make a male character because, in my opinion, none of the male models were all that good to look at before the Blood Elves came around. The men are all absurdly muscular, while the females of almost every race are cute/pretty. Blood Elves looked more like your friend because they ironically look the most human of all the races.
