Is there still a negative stigma against male players that play female character

I play female characters a lot in Anime-style mmorpg because females look better in anime style.

But in Western MMORPGs, I usually play male characters.

Isn't negative stigma a double negative?

There's a difference between playing a female character and pretending to be a chick for free crap.
Some roads you shouldn't go down because maps used to say there'd be dragons there. Now they don't, but that don't mean the dragons aren't there.

Nothing wrong with being as straight male (or lesbian, for that matter). I almost always pick female characters when playing the game.

I play female about 75% of the time in MMOs and I've never had anyone hassle me about it aside from one ex.

I did have a friend's little brother try to give me some flak for a female CaS character in Soul Calibur if that counts. I also have a friend who hates the idea of femshep but that wasn't prompted by me playing her or anything.
Every time I try to go where I really wanna be it's already where I am, 'cuz I'm already there

In single player it is alright, females looks less boring.

When in MMORPGs if you start pretending to be chick, that sick and considered a con man.

The latter is the acceptable one, right?
