Its my game, my rules. Just like any other group game set up by some one. I don't see what the deal is if you don't want to play a female character. And if you do, then this clearly isn't the game for you.
Strifes - I would assume that sending me a character sheet will get your question answered. My first post states that just about any feasible roll can be 'played' - as long as the character etc makes sense for being on board a Colony Ship.
