Why do a good majority of people make female characters?

I have played using male and female characters. And I actually forget I am playing as a female because the dialogue is obviously built around a male MC.


How so?

Do the Dragons in this game even HAVE a gender? Seeing as how they aren't normal dragons.


The "dragons" in this game anyway aren't dragons. True dragons have four legs and are with/without wings. Wyverns have wings and two legs (Skyrim dragons).

And yeah I always saw "dragons" in this game as genderless but with male attributes. Like orcs/orks from warhammer or 40k.

Actually not really. Lots of people on gamefaqs are shamefully insecure.


You would know, what with you're constant search for validation.


I don't defend people, I defend truth, and you sir, are wrong.


Whatever, I get it, Rebel is allowed to be a d-bag for some otherwordly reason. I'll stop worrying about it, since apparently we love his d-bagness because he occasionally posts helpful info.


Nope. I repeat, I'll stand up for facts, not for people. His posting habits and you're claim that he's seeking validation constantly are two different things. You are wrong.

Hey, bro, guess what? TRUE DRAGONS are whatever the creators of the universe they're in wants them to be.

This is not Warhammer, or LOTR, or DnD. It's TES.

What other reasons are there for his condescending attitude than to assert his sense of superiority?

The constant influx of idiots and trolls to this board, who are willfully ignorant to the extreme.

You're a great example.

Easier to masturbate to my female character than my male one!

In all seriousness though, I only did it for the speech perk to help make some dough at lower levels.

I'm sorry you feel that how someone treats trolls on the internet makes them a deplorable person. You have some truly confused standards kiddo.

For me...

20% female empowerment
45% simply makes the story and RP'ing more interesting, especially considering how rare female lead protagonists are even in this day and age.
5% to chuckle at all the instances in which the writers forgot to make the dialogue gender-specific
30% because I am indeed a raging pervert
