I tend to plAy male characters (I also tend to play thin characters with a reserved and somewhat aristocratic bent), but I have been actively attempting to correct that tendency. I feel like it is laziness to only play the characters I tend to play. I’m not really sure where in the process the character’s sex becomes determined. I think it is usually fairly early on, since sex is a huge determiner of other characteristics in almost all game worlds.
My 2 groups are MMMMFF and FFFMM. I’ve been playing in roughly even mixed groups since I went to college. Before that, I played in a mixed sex group in grades 1-3, and then played almost entirely in exclusively male groups until college.
