The statement "turned off because they stand out more" misses the mark. It should be "turned off because the minute most of these males hear a female voice they either become confrontational or creepy mccreepster". It's pretty universal for any game that has voice capability. It has gotten a bit better in the last few years but not by much. Outing yourself as a female in most of these voice-enabled VWs or games tends to be more hassle and annoyance than anything else. At least that is my experience and the experience of many female gamers that I know. Even inside SecondLife if you go to many of these info hubs where people hang out to voice chat, it's pretty much a similar experience.

Yes very good point, it's definitely a pervasive problem.
