considering there are no attributes assigned to gender there are no advantage or disadvantage.

Males play female toons to give you a reason to start the same lame thread every 15 min.

Nothing, there is absolutely no gameplay advantage or disadvantage based on gender. I just play female draenei because I like the racials but simply cannot stand those walking refridgerators that are male draenei.

People give me free items...okay that hasn't actually happened. I just find them more appealing to look at, for most races anyways.

I like to play some of the female races. No idea why. Just liked the casting animations and fighting style, really. Nothing really to do with the gender >.>

There is no reason why you shouldn't...I was just curious. I read something about how guys like the way female avatars look and they'd rather watch a female run around all day than a male... I've only been apart of the WoW community for a few weeks and I just noticed that some guys play girls and i was just curious if there were advantages or disadvantages. thats all :] Also i read that guys love to give girls gifts and free money and things like that...but from the other posts I read, and from my personal experience playing, im guessing thats a false statement?

Some of the models for each gender just look ridiculous to me. When I roll a race, the gender is pretty much pre-decided.

Any horde race except Blood Elf - Male
Blood Elf - Female

Any alliance race except Human or Draenei - Male
Draenei - Female
Human - Depends on class. My mage was male and this priest was at one point a female human.

As an actual woman playing a female character...

I don't think I've gotten any special treatment. In fact I'm usually the last to get geared. Tanks/Healers have priority when getting tier tokens and I've had crappy luck. And I'm last in line for the crafted boots. >.>

I have been hit on a few times. And I get the random sexist joke or something, but that's the internet for you.

I enjoy the animations on female night elves. I'll generally roll males that don't look awful/bad animations. Point in case, Undead males. They're great. Females have better animations so I roll female. Same with Night Elves. Orcs on the other hand are always male. Too badass.

Much better to look at for extended hours of gaming?

Because a female blood elf looks much better in this hat than a male blood elf.
