Gaming has come a long way in the last twenty years. But some of the ugly sides of it still linger, and may have gotten worse. A shame.

From MUDSpeke:

"There are no non-presentational differences between the sexes in the game
except for a skewing of the probability distribution for attributes when a
persona is created: male personae will tend to have a strength 10 greater than
if they were female, and female personae will on average have a dexterity and
stamina each 5 higher than if they were male."

However, this is only when they are initially created. Eventually, the stats all even out at 100 for both male and female characters. So it probably isn't even noticeable except for the very low-level personae.
