Like I said, media is a mirror, and we want someone that we can relate to when we're playing around with it. This goes for movies, books, music, anything.
To claim that wanting more female representation/avatars in games is reverse-sexism is beyond ridiculous, especially since a large percentage of gamers are now females. Are you really saying that women aren't worthy of having characters that they can relate to, because sexism?
Don't be stupid.
