1) What partydevil said.
2) People give you things (lol)
3) In RPGs, there are often different plot lines for different genders.
4) Does it really matter? It's a game, get over it.

1) Good point but still your playing as a girl
2) Why the hell would anyone do that because your a female character
3) But you would be missing out on the male plotline if this is so I personally have never played a game where the plotline is majorly different it only ever varies a tiny bit from the games I've played
4) I'm just helping people come out of the closet

In halo 4 the hitbox for females is smaller

Lol no.

2) Why the hell would anyone do that because your a female character

People who play MMOs are sometimes sad, desperate people. What a shock.

and that makes me gay?
liking a female over a male when your a male is gay? thats weird.
i'd say playing a male is more gay. looking at a muscular guy all the time and playing whit him. mha what is the fun in that?
i rather look at some nice curves then muscles.

2) Why the hell would anyone do that because your a female character

same reason why people do that in real life. ;)

4) I'm just helping people come out of the closet

HAHAHAHA xD oh wait.... your serious, arn't you?

I see nothing wrong with playing as a girl, I fail to see how it makes you gay, or means that you want to be female, or . . .

I can understand the reasoning behind not wanting to look at a male figure for 50+ hours too (at least, in good games).

But for me, I like to be the character in the game, that is usually the objective of those big huge RPG/Adventure games (ME for example). The only time I would use a female character is if they have better abilities. (example from a game I have played, Heaven Besieged (a custom map in SC 2), their are several heroes available, several of which (the archangels Seraphiel (Nova) and Raphael (Medivac) as well as arch-demon Abbadon (kerrigan) are represented by female units, and most heroes are balanced, so choosing these characters would make sense.

Also, in the campaign for Heart of the Swarm, Kerrigan is just awesome.

Because they assume you are female as well.

That's quite offensive, and not at all true. Playing as a girl does not mean you are gay.

I recommend talking to Xzeno about this..he seems the most fit for putting you in your place

depends on how you see it.
let's take the elder scrolls for example:
if i just play as myself then i always use the same skills and same options in dialog etc..
i for 1 find it more fun to think of a char. and give them a personality befor hand and play the game as if i were that person.
i can play myself everyday in real life already you see. (that sounds wrong xD )

I guess that makes sense.

So basically, you do this.

"Who should I be now, oh, I know, I will be a (insert random race) who likes to use (insert random weapon(s))"

more like:
i'm going to be "a pissed of mage" or "a friendly thief" or "a fighter that can't make decisions very well"

i once had a super friendly (orc) fighter that only used a warhammers and unarmored. he liked to talk whit people but didn't want to get involved in the problems of others. so he often decided to not help people whit their quests and only do those quests that didn't involve pissing someone of in some way.
but then he become a vampire. but i didn't know that untill it was to late.
no one wanted to talk whit him anymore and they thought he was some kind of monster. he didn't like it that no one wanted to talk because that was his most favorite thing in life. so he made a quest for himself. and it was to kill literally everyone that didn't want to talk whit him. and untill today he has only found 3 people in all of morrowind that wants to talk whit him. all the rest is dead.

thats the story of my super friendly vampire orc. xD

i like to build some background story when i build a char for TES games (and some others) and play the game as them, not as myself. =)
