Default Anyone going to create all Female Characters?

Because I know I am. Blizzard believes in gender equality or something so the differences between Male and Female characters are only asthetic in both WoW and Diablo III. Male are not "stronger" then Female, and Female are not "more intelligent" than Male as the stereotype holds (which if it were true would mean the Males can only be Barbarians and the Females can only be mages).

I for one would love to create an army of five females, each one a different class, such as Female Barbarian, Female Witch Doctor, etc. Just for fun.

As long as Blizzard doesn't shoehorn feminism in like they did with World of Warcraft I really don't care.

wow armor for d3!!!

i never got the thing with being a male playing female characters.

sometimes it makes sense vaguely, like an amazon, or a preistess type character, but a female barbarian? that just seems odd to me.

I might make a female character to jack off to, but not to play as. I don't want to be hit on in game by desperate losers who remind me too much of myself.

Unless it nets me free gear.

If there were necros then I would make a female necro but my witch doctor is going to be a dude but I'll make female chars with the old classes, if they really put some of them in the game, like a female pally or druid or something..

Lols, actually you have a point, usually in MMORPG or in online games that has gender choices it is preferable to play a character that matches your gender since this character is your avatar infront of other people.

But in off-line Solo or singleplayer that is not the case at all, in Tomb Raider everyone controls a female character, in Uncharted everyone controls a male character, it is no big deal really in that case.

So while all my online ( Bnet ) characters are probably gonna be males i will also choose the male barbarian in single player cause i want to see his story ( probably will be the first thing to do when i get the game), and will choose the female witch doctor in SP cause i think she looks more interesting and mystique than her male counter part.

I think that Blizz already confirmed that every character in D3 will have both a male and a female version.

Which only goes to prove that writing replies in deep states of sleep deprivation is not a good idea. My bad.

Speaking of female characters, I hope for at least one that'll break the mold of "ultra sexy vixen in a steel bikini" (vain hope, I know).

The female barbarian doesn't look bad however, could easily belong in a Frazetta painting.

I never played WoW, but I always thought the female characters in W3 were ridiculously stereotypical examples of post-liberal feminist (a.k.a. not-really-feminist) media females. I guess I can exempt Sylvanas though. She was cool in the expansion regardless of her gender.

Well WoW females had this armor issue. Something that looked like full-body-plated-protecting everything on a male suddenly turned into Madonna-sized chest plates and half-leggings and stuff.

Otherwise the females weren't really that bad design wise.

It's like that in Guild Wars (and basically most games that support both genders) as well

Me personally, I can't see myself making all females. My main characters will always be male, though if there's something similar to a amazon then that will probably female simply because amazons were my second favourite D2 class

I might make some female characters and pretend to be a girl and hit on guys in public games to try to get them to rush me for free, give me free stuff, etc.
IDK.
Generally, I'll probably flip a coin when I make a character for M/F.
