    Ahoy me hearties! ~ I've been doing some thinkin' again :confused: ~

    QUESTION: In playing POTCO, do you think it is misleading for a guy to potray himself as a female pirate - or - a girl to potray herself as a male pirate on the game??? What be yer own thoughts concerning this matter?

    I admit, I have been "shocked" a few times on the game as a result of this confusion. * So, what say you? Do you think it is ethical (silly as this question may be) for pirates to pretend to be a certain gender to they're friends without informing them or letting them know? With a few of my own experiences, I had to find out the hard way (usually not by this person informing me but through 'other' friends or aquaintances explaining the truth).

    In defense to my own answer to this question...I leave you a "song" that probably sums up my own opinion on this subject matter (NO OFFENSE ladies :D)!

    Maybe it's because they want to see how the other half lives. Personally i think it's weird for someone to portray another gender.

    I personally think this is a little wierd. I would never make a male pirate for myself. But it is a more common occurance then people think.

    I know a couple of people who have pirates in both genders.. guys, with gal pirates.. not really sure why they did it, but in both cases they leveled um to 50. In these two cases, I'm pretty sure they didn't use them with any ill intentions... but I'm sure there are some in game that have. One thing I will say, I usually have a pretty good idea when I'm lookin at a gal pirate belonging to a guy, they seem to lack taste in their choice of clothing, especially in the color department, lots of clashing colors.. almost always a dead give away.. lol oh, btw... 4 gals for me :)

    Yeah, us "guys" are not too savvy when it comes to color coordination. Knowing my luck (if an attempt was made to create a 'she-pirate'), I would more than likely walk out of the tailor shop with non-matching SOCKS on my feet, rofl.

    I have never misrepresented my gender. I have run across a few friends that have, going both ways. When I found out, it changed my interaction with them. Right or wrong, I handled them differently without premeditation. Considering this while reading the above posts, I may have concluded that they were not entirely trustworthy. I am not saying my conclusion is right or wrong. But the bottom line is, I slowly lost contact with them.

    I find it weird that some guys would want to play as ladies and some ladies would want to play as guys.... just kinda weird if u think about it....
    Have had a few of my friends go from one priate to the next and end up as a girl.... (or guy)
