I will admit that I’ve never played Minecraft because I have a feeling it’s really, really, ridiculously sandbox-y. As someone who needs a story and set-up objectives, I know I would go crazy. However, this is a truly admirable look at how the developers of Minecraft seemed to have gone out of their way to not just blur gender lines, but try to dispose of them as best they could. Brava.
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.
