Oh, and I don't like how a class can be either gender.
Come on dude, be reasonable. Now there are more women playing games and they are more inclined to take a female character just as men are more inclined to take a male one. So it is only logical that both sexes in the game can occupy any class they want. Now women can experience what it is to be a big dumb barbarian, or at least in the fantasy world of a game.
