Let's please be mindful that there is a distinction between having a bit of fun and being insulting. Don't make it personal.

I couldn't have said it better myself.

Look man, I just want to roll around and wreck shit with Wakka, Robin Hood, and John Vignocchi, is that so much to ask?

@bisonhero: Both of you. For all intents and purposes, the Sheik persona is supposed to be male. However, Sheik is obviously still Zelda at the end of the day whether or not she is disguised as a dude.

This question is less about what pronoun should be used and more about the specific lore stuff. It's been a long time since I played Ocarina of Time, so I don't remember, was the purpose of the Sheik disguise to hide the fact that she's a woman in order to do "unladylike" stuff like fighting (in other words, Mulan)? Or was it just to hide the fact that she's Princess Zelda in order to keep a low profile and evade Hyrule royal guards?

I always assumed the latter, that Sheik was "inconspicuous commoner vs high profile royal target" rather than "man vs woman". But again, I haven't played OoT in like 15 years.

Wouldn't Brock Lesnar be plan B and Cesaro be plan C?

Add that to the list of reasons why Xavier Woods will never go anywhere...

*sigh*

If it hasn't been said yet (although I imagine it likely has), the reason I play FemShep in Mass Effect and FemBoss in Saints Row is not personal preference. It's strictly for lore continuity.

FemShep and FemBoss are canon to me, doggone it!

I need to look up that story about the fundraiser battle between Dan and that "unnamed athlete"

I backed that project. And now that I think of it, I don't know if the book ever actually came out... I should look into that.
