Is your pirate the same sex as you? Reply to this Post
Reply with Quote

[If you have alts of different sexes, please answer the above question with regard to the pirate you play most often.]

Being one of those that mainly plays as pirates of the opposite sex (for various reasons), and reading the recent sex-changing suggestion of Aur's, I got to thinking, how many others out there play a pirate whose sex doesn't match their own?

I was quite surprised to find no poll on this already (although I did find a request for one from quite a way back).

Well I'm happy to play a pirate of the same sex as me. Personally, I'm too poor at role-playing to be able to really pull off a female anyway. :p

I toyed with the idea of having a male alt....I may still eventually...but I am happy with my girlies for now.

After creating the alt Arthurdent I was tempted to make an alt named Trillian or Fenchurch but decided that there must be some representation of The Mystical Dahnatnah in the game instead.

My pirate is a wench, like me, although I do have a male alt. Guys clothes are soooo cool I decided I wanted to give that a try, although since I'm such an outrageous flirt, playing a male alt got to be a tad tricky....

There's nothing wrong with a female pirate with a masculine sounding name. Willbie always confuses people. They correct themselves and move on. :-D

This is one of the few games where I don't play a male character. Waaaaaaaay back in the dark ages of MUDding, I learned that if I didn't want to say "Thanks, my sex life is fine, don't really feel the need to type about it with you" every five minutes, I had to play a guy.

Didn't have that problem in Y!PP. Hooray!

(Although I have made male alts to stand around and try clothes on. I mean, come on. How could I not?)

I always have a hard time when I have to control female characters in RPG's.

Pirate - "Ahoy!"
Me RPing a female -"er...ahoy, male pirate, who is not the same gender as I am, because I am in fact female. Not a man. And definately not a man pretending to be a woman."
Pirate - "...are you alright?"
Me - "Yes, yes! Uh...I..uh...do declare!"
Hurry, change the subject, you fool! What do women talk about?
Me - "So, how about those pheasants, eh?"

I'm not secure enough in my masculinity to have a female character.

See...I ahve the opposite issue. I end up with girls having crushes on my male characters and then having to have that awkward conversation of telling them I am a girl too...

...then telling me they don't care that they stillw ant to dream and moon over the male character.

Yikes.

Just thought I'd collate these results, since there's a few things the numbers don't show clearly.

Of those that voted:
    37.5% are female, 62.5% male
    42.8% play female pirates, 57.2% play male pirates
    8% play opposite sex pirates, 92% play same sex pirates[/list:u:64de37de3b]
    But perhaps most interestingly, we can also deduce (assuming the sample is representative, of course) the following:

    1 in 7 female pirates is played by a male
    1 in 40 male pirates is played by a female


    (Although that last figure is very rough, due to the small sample size).

    Thanks to all that voted!
