what it feels like for a girl


It’s been five days since I started a new character in World of Warcraft. I decided to make a Mage because I’ve seen how useful they can be in instances. I decided to be Alliance because I wanted to see what it was like on the “other side.” I also rolled female because … well … because.

It turns out, it’s fun to be a girl. I’ve been partying with a friend of mine who also rolled a female Warlock and we’ve been comparing our manly notes on the subject of acting like women online. I finally am able to have some empathy with how women think:

It doesn’t matter what my items can do, as long as they look good. I’ve ditched my + intellect gear for lower stat items just because my toon looks so cute in violet. And I keep all of my clothes, because there’s so much to choose from.

So that’s me. Roll Alliance in Frostmourne (GMT+11). I’ll make you bags. And robes. And capes. Just choose the color, hun.

* Disclaimer – I’m not gay. I just finally understand how women think and I believe they have every right to it. It’s … err… fun to be quite honest. Also, I never meant this post to degrade women in whatsoever way. It just made me appreciate the value of why some women love to dress up.
