I don't see what the big deal. Did I give a crap and think it was weird when I was playing Samus Aran in Super Metroid? Nah. Sometimes the character I roll just makes more sense to me as a female, or perhaps I dislike the males 3D model. In Warhammer Online for example, the male elfs look like complete weenies. In WoW, the human male character model looks silly in my opinion. When I see a female character running around in an MMO I learned a long time ago to not make any assumptions about that persons gender. Not because I'd probably be wrong assuming a female character was actually being played by a female, but because at the end of the day, it really doesn't matter who is playing what. For me personally, it doesn't make a difference, I'm not looking for some kind of internet girlfriend anyways.
