A lot of those reasons are mine. Most of the male characters appeal more to me, and since a lot of anime guys tend to be guess-the-gender in general, my semi-androgynous appearance helps. It makes my mother worried that her only daughter dresses up as a boy... She has good reason to be.
Too bad I'm so short.
