I don't really have a problem with it. I force my BFs to play males, though.
I once thought a person who was helping me out a lot was a female because he had alllll female chars in WoW, was super nice, and used girly emotes. Then I found out he was a guy in his 30s when I was like 17. Needless to say, my perspective changed.
I had a couple male chars in WoW. I only got my male Blood Elf mage to max level.
Moreover, I like the style of most males in anime-style MMOs. Not a fan of beefcakes.
