So I was curious about this topic. Part of my own journey and transition was possible by my reflection on this. While I had a lot of fear as a youth and into early adulthood about expressing femininity I was free to be female in any games I could. In fact so much so to the point I wouldn't buy certain games if I couldn't use a female character. It was my release from reality. When I started telling people online I was female I felt guilty... but then came to the idea that I wasn't lying and shouldn't be guilty. It was like a sort of training ground... So. I put this thread out here to see if the following holds generally true primarily if given a choice or preference. Cis male plays biological sex Cis female plays biological sex Trans woman plays gender identity aligned Trans male plays gender identity aligned And anything that doesn't fit those categories such as cis males playing females primarily.
