I usually play as neuter because I'm usually named after one of the cats, living or dead.

Another example: in Lackey's Valdemar world, the Shin'a'in Swordsworn are effectively neuter; when the Goddess accepts their oath, She *completely* eliminates their sex drive.

Donaldson's Bloodguard, from the Thomas Covenant novels, have a similar outlook.
