When we first got RDR2, I was focused on story mode while my wife wanted to play online with a couple co-workers, so the online character was female.

About 10 minutes into playing, she ran into a couple male characters who lassoed and hog-tied her and then kept teabagging her.

I remember not being surprised that it happened, nor that it happened so quickly.

u/travworld Oct 20 '21

Yeah, I made my RDO character a female too.

The male character in my opinion doesn't have enough varied clothing.

Meanwhile, the female has so many different dresses and stuff. I make my character look as fabulous as I can and have fun with it. All pink and purple with a giant feather in my hat.

People message me a lot. My friends love making fun of me for it, but I don't care. It's hilarious.

I have played girl characters my whole life and I have never been able to leverage that into free shit. I'm clearly doing something wrong.

u/clamroll Oct 21 '21

Back when star wars galaxies was a thing, one of my guild mates, a woman, issued a challenge to the men in the guild. We were to make female characters on role playing servers. In addition to role playing our characters, we were to role play as women. With the added catch of playing an entertainer/dancer, as they were both careers in that game. No trying to catfish people, just stay in character and play the game. But spend some time to make your avatar cute/hot, including going to an in game image designer for help if needed (hair/makeup artist combined with plastic surgery, basically more character customization than you had available at character creation)

I decided to give it a shot when I'd otherwise set up a camp (for survival xp) and smoke a pot pipe. These were the nascent days of voice chat and digital cameras, so "I don't have a mic" was enough to plausibly cover you. The entertainer gig was something I ended up enjoying, as you'd sit in a bar/cantina and play music/dance for people to heal mind wounds, and even to buff them making combat much easier for em. It was easy to make friends with other entertainers, and chatting with different people asking where they were going, what they'd done to get wounded, it was all very entertaining fare for someone getting stoned.

Holy. Shit. I really wish more guys could do something like this. It was alarming. The number of dudes who were messaging me every time I logged in. The gifts and tips I'd get were staggering. Rare weapons, vehicles, getting offers of powerleveling non entertainer skills... It was a big difference from pushing as a dude. There were some guys that seemed normal. 3 of em dropped literal marriage proposals while we were gaming. And the term hadn't been coined at the time, but dear God the mansplaining. It was constant.

Anyway, the free stuff was great and that character was literally independently wealthy to a point of absurdity within a few weeks, but the education that experience gave me was eye opening beyond compare. That game have a lot of organic experiences I've not had in other games, but my time as a dancer in that game was beyond what I'd expect from a game, even an mmo.

I still play female characters a lot. Not for free stuff, (I'm never cagey about the fact that I'm a dude who looks like Seth Rogan,) but because that one character taught me the value in not playing a character that reflects your normal irl experience. Usually the experience isn't QUITE that eye opening, but many times it can still give some new perspective.
