I love MMORPGS! Guildwars is my personal preference, but WoW is cool too :)

I'm mostly a computer gamer, my parents never allowed me to have a console (when I turned 16 they gave my BROTHERS a Wii, and that is the extent of my videogame knowledge)
I suck at videogames such as the type that occur on TV with a remote control.
I can't say I'm 'skilled' in computer games, my favorites being MMORPGS, but I do greatly enjoy them.
Sometimes when I play with my friends they yell at me for "not placing the stat in the right place" and whatnot.
I prefer to just play and learn things for myself, it ends up being my own gaming experience as opposed to a character that I control created within the guidelines of some game. If I mess up a character too much, and I don't like it, then I start all over again, it's that simple.
My greatest curiosity when it comes to gaming, particularly observed in a game I used to play several years ago: Maplestory.
First off, I hated this game from the beginning. I played it in total for about a year and a half (with tons of breaks) because my friends forced me to, and they're not the type to try something different. I don't know, just something about the game that is just so... blegh. Also, I just NEED 3 DIMENSIONS TO LIIIIIVEEE. 2D is just not exciting :(
My observation is that LOADS of guys love MAKING FEMALE CHARACTERS JUST FOR THE LULZ. I do not understand this phenomenon. I asked several of them WHY they do it, and they answer with generalities such as "just wanted to try it out" or "I was wondering if any dudes would hit on me".
Correct me if I'm wrong, but girls don't usually do this. Why do you think that is, and why do you think guys REALLY have the urge to make female characters.
My personal belief is that they have some sort of secret reason for it, but I can't quite figure it out.
