I'm comparing my depiction of females to how I would play a male character, and I'm not seeing any difference, besides the bad falsetto.Women do make different choices and have a different way of arriving at a conclusion than men, but I'm not very good at mimicking that.This is a good lesson to keep in mind when trying to fairly portray women in a roleplaying game, too.Unless you're playing a costume drama where words like "chattel" belong, your character will not be defined by her relations to men, and she has many ways to be a woman that don't have to do with flirting or being hit on.How can I improve this ability, and how different should I really make female characters than male?
