Niki Fears wrote:A Note About Gender:
While some players do, from time to time, play a character of the opposite gender, when creating original characters this is often rather taboo among many in the RPG world. Due to the high levels of interaction, particular with RPG's that include social elements such as unions/marriages, most players will not react favorably if they learn that you are not the gender that you claim to be. And, since playing as your own gender gives your character a more personal depth it often keeps your actions more true to the nature of your character so it is best to always play as your real gender.
Personally I do not see a problem with role playing people of the opposite sex after all it is called "role playing." but according to this guy it is taboo.
