I haven't actually RP'd homo- or bisexual characters. Had a couple on collaborative works, might put one in solo-works but... I dunno. I don't really care about romance in most RP's so don't care about sexuality either.

The answers, my friend, are blowing in the wind.
The wind itself is not in fact fast moving air,
for it is symbolism to make this riddle,
more difficult to decipher.
The wind in which I speak of
is really nothing special.
Something everyone uses,
something containing secrets and confessions.
A diary it is not;
though the answers, my friend,
lie within the four sided shape
the answers lie within the box,
of an unpopular Inn.
This is a figurative box-
Of... an... In.
"The animals in this world also have a soul. The only difference between their souls and ours is that our soul belongs to the spirit. Their souls belong to the body. When their body perishes, their soul perish with it. When our body perishes, the soul remains with the spirit (destinations being Heaven, or Hell).
However, there is a way that the soul of an animal can be carried into the spiritual realm/afterlife- but this can only be done through the love that a follower of Christ has for an animal; for the Father has compassion for His children who lose a beloved animal through physical death."

Never forget that the influences you enjoy, even some of the closest people to you, may be ignorant to certain things that are far more essential and significant in life than they think; and thus may have an uneducated perspective on some key values - even if they do not see it themselves. Don't let your love/respect for certain individuals hold you back from using your own wisdom and discernment on certain values/things by doing your own research.
And remember, in the end what was good will be "bad" and what was bad will be "good". Don't be a follower in this world, and let yourself be led into deceptions.
I love YOU!
Hmm, as a male, I split my character gender almost evenly. However, I do have a tendency to put more thought and effort into my female characters than I do my males. This is going to come out odd, but I find females to be much more "workable" than males do. A lot of male sterotypes inadvertently come out no matter how hard you try to iron them out. I find my females can be more creative in their personalities and even appearance.
But again, I'm pretty much comfortable with both genders about equally.
Well this was a great and all around interesting thread, but I have reached my thinking quota and I am not paid to think overtime. I might appear once in a while though.

Spake these words to him departing:
"Iku-Turso, son of Old-age,
Nevermore arise from ocean,
Nevermore let Northland-heroes
See thy face above the waters I
Nevermore has Iku-Turso
Risen to the ocean-level;
Never since have Northland sailors
Seen the head of this sea-monster.
There is majesty here
Vast in its implications
What wonders; offered around each new corner-
Over every skyward peak-
Or hidden deep; within in the shadows of each sunken valley
The questions raised
If such glories can be divined, yet forgotten
Lost to time;
Strewn about the entirety of the stars
What then are we-
Be us man,
Or be us monster
In light of knowledge, so vast-
So far beyond
Superior; even to our dreams
What matter, then, our petty confrontations
When weighed against the sins we sow
What matter, then, our fate amongst the cosmos, eternal
In light of the Halo; its luminous glow...My good blade carves the casques of men,
My tough lance thrusteth sure,
My strength is as the strength of ten,
Because my heart is pure...Surtr moves from the south
with the scathe of branches:
there shines from his sword
the sun of Gods of the Slain.
Salut. I'm a female and drift towards females, but, seeing the opinions on the first page, I agree that depicting females can become very stereotypical. Males can range more sometimes, and I'm a feminist saying this.
I think it's best for EVERYONE to vary in their choice of gender, and, yes, that includes males. Playing all of anything isn't giving yourself room to grow, so whenever the average creeps its way constantly into your criteria, maybe it's time for change.
I'm a male and I tend to RP females.
I think I seem to be able to do females better, whenever I RP a guy, he seems to act more like a machine, or a robot.

I tend to RP both genders equally. When I do a female character, it tends to lean towards humor while my male characters are usually serious. I have switched it up from time to time though.
The more you learn, the more you know, the more you know, and the more you forget. The more you forget, the less you know. So why bother to learn?
I don't RP women well. I've tried before, but it just doesn't work and it's not convincing.
Women have a bitchiness and illogical manner than I just can't nail. Not to mention a woman's complete lack of understanding on how to portray authority (sorry ladies, most women just don't know how to come off as a leader). The women I play come off too strong and sound either like lesbians or men.
No sexual joke intended, nailing them isn't the problem... lol
EDIT: A large problem with men playing women roles is they tend to become 2D characters. They either become the stereotypical "weak woman" or the "uncharacteristically strong uber-feminist representation." There is little understanding in the subtlety of pulling it of properly. Even gay men don't do it very well.
The same goes for women playing male characters. I almost always can tell because very few women can pull off authority right when writing a character. They tend to come off as bitchy or angry way to quickly and not hit the "urgency" without sounding foolish or over the top. This isn't a shot at women, it's just true. Some women can do it just fine, but the vast majority struggle. There is too much emotion involved in the character for minimal things, and women tend to do this a lot more often than men.
Not to mention the quickness with which a person jump into RP romances usually makes things easy to spot. How it's done is a clear representation of their sex. Gay men, even if they deny it, are still too forceful in their approach, and sound like a man. Women tend to make the character quick to fall in love with little reason, and sound like a woman. Men typically can't pull it off right at all and it just doesn't make sense. They can be a mixture of too forceful or just awkwardly jumped into, if you can't place it in either of the two above categories and it just doesn't 'feel' right, chances are a man typed it.
Part of this I'm sure is the nerd factor (a large portion of the RP population has probably never talked to the opposite sex at length or had a relationship :P), but it's just predisposition to mentality. Most RP'ers and writers even let themselves out in their characters, even when they're not trying to. It takes an insane amount of effort to ensure there is nothing of your mentality in a character, and typically a good bit of research into the psychology. Women will tend to play like women, men will tend to play like men. I'm willing to bet I could read most of the characters that people claim they play a good "opposite sex" and tell what they were, without checking first.

Thank you, Jaxi, for this amazing signature!
Sucker! You really did click it! Good God, you're a moron. Bwahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha!
I love everybody who clicks on his, only because it's so entertaining to see people's reactions to having a random person laughing at them for clicking on something that just read "Good!" without actually realizing what it meant!
