The thing I find most amusing about stuff like this is people who "draw a line". For example:
Why should anyone care what gender you play as in a game? Its not an avatar of your real life self.(Unless your a furry dressing up as a cat in real life.)

People play either genders, as long as they're not pretending to actually be a female IRL (RP doesn't count, RP you take the role of a character but calling yourself a female IRL is not RP.) then I don't care. And yes, I do play either gender in RPG games and I DO RP. I just make it clear to state I'm a male IRL.
"It's okay to play a catgirl in a game, just so long as you don't act like one IRL" or "It's okay to be the opposite gender in a game, just so long as you don't act like that IRL"
For the sake of argument, I'm going to make the same point IRL that has been made about the game: Why are people so insecure that the notion of someone else doing something -you- think is abnormal offends you? If I wanna walk around IRL with fake tits and a pair of cat ears, then dammit, I should be able to!
Without trying to go too far off topic here, I'm going to apply the same logic to all of this mess, be it RP or not RP, that is applied to other things in life: If someone else wants to act a certain way or feel a certain way or dress a certain way or have *** a certain way, why do you care? Why is what other people choose to do any of anyone else's business?
If everyone wants to run around IRL being futa catgirls, then @#%^; let em. Doesn't hurt me any.
EDIT: I think I may have misread that second quote. Reading it again, I realize he was talking about people who play female characters and claim to be female IRL; I thought he was referring to transvestites Edited, Sep 25th 2010 12:57pm by Mikhalia
