*(or she, though the character is a male tauren druid)*Uh... wtf Mike? Apparently girls can't play male tauren druids now? Oh I'm sorry, I forgot we only pick the 'pretty' races right?

her point is valid - it reads as if we are to assume it's a male player because the toon is male, which is ridiculous. in my opinion, she doesn't deserve to be down-ranked for calling attention to it.

You should burn your bra in protest. After you make me a sammich.

I am a girl that plays a male BE, and I can honestly say that when I see males of any race in game, I assume that the player is a male until I see evidence to the contrary. I will assume a female toon is probably a female on my server- which is very female heavy (roleplay servers must be higher female than other servers)- unless they're not talkative, in which case I will assume it is a male.Just how it is.

First off, he wasn't just commenting it was a male druid. If he was, then it should have just said '(or she)' and then noted the race/sex/class in a completely different sentence. Like Frank said, it reads as though because it's a male tauren, then we are to assume it's a male player.To the bra burning, sammich making, and Susan B. comments. This wasn't some feminist rant. It's about the fact that it's silly to assume anyone's sex based on their in-game avatar. There are plenty of girls who play male toons, and plenty of guys who play female toons. Case in point, my guild's co-GMs are both male and play female blood elf mains.This is why it's best not to make assumptions no matter what the topic may be.
