D: I've had this (gender-based stuff) happen to me on multiple occasions, INCLUDING playing pirates (I know, ironic, considering I've obsessed with them since age 5. : / ). But you just have to pull through it. I just started a new pirate game with other people, and when the original guys wanted to play, we shunned them. >:3 Until they let me play with them, that is. Then they could play with us.
