I always tend to enjoy the moment when I speak up on Vent for the first time and there's this brief pause as they figure out that Im a girl. Im not so surprised to find other women in MMO's anymore, the social aspect really is a huge draw for most other women, it becomes a bigger surprise to find them in FPS's, RTS's and Fighters.

Male avatar or female avatar?My girlfriend and I are always kind of having fun with our pair of male characters. No one can figure out why the two male toons that just joined the guild brought a pair of female voices on vent. No one can tell us apart on vent- even though we have very different voices and inflections. We're always getting told to do things each other's characters are capable of.But the 'uh...' moment is pure gold. I'm sure its funny even when you don't start out with a male avatar.

Sometimes its awkward on vent to know if you are talking to a 12 year old boy, a 25 year old female, or a 60 year old female chain smoker.

@Eddy Female avatar, most of the time, though I am so very fond of my muscly boy orcs. :D There was a case where my male roommate and I were in the same guild, he with a female character and I with a male, and we were confused for each others gender a lot. (No Vent with that group!)

I enjoy that myself, being the recruiter.Having female players in my guild seems to make it a tad calmer. Unfortunately we no longer have any active raiding girls/women, as they have come and gone. I remember very fondly one player we pugged for some hard mode Ulduar 10s, a mage who came on vent and then started speaking with the softest voice and the guild chat went crazy. To top that off she also displayed presicion and cleverness in both movement and rotations.To me it adds one very important thing in a guild, diversity. But you need more than just one, or they end up getting overrun. So when I see 40/60 female/male ratios in wow, I have to ask if that is the case in raiding as well, or if they are doing something else.

My boyfriend's character --> blond bloodelf paladin girlMy character --> male tauren druid When some people realize we are a couple (well because sometimes we control each other's character) they always think that I am the bloodelf female and he is the druid. Kinda get used to it :) He likes to see that small girl swinging a huge axe, and I - well, dont really have other choice in Horde because I think tauren females are very weird. However, if it would be possible, I would change my druid into troll female in a heartbeat.
