Gender is not an issue in Minecraft, simply because there are none. Creator Markus "Notch" Persson has made is clear that there is simply no gender involved in the illustrious world of Minecraft, even for Steve, the Minecraft guy.
"The human model is intended to represent a Human Being. Not a male Human Being or a female Human Being, but simply a Human Being. The blocky shape gives it a bit of a traditional masculine look, but adding a separate female mesh would just make it worse by having one specific model for female Human Beings and male ones. That would force players to make a decisions about gender in a game where gender doesn't even exist." - Markus Persson, Mojang
