I'm not at all surprised by the results of this survey. I would suspect that results would be similar with older gamers too. Gamers are happy to play non-human characters.

I would expect to see similar results when it comes to race too.

Those who are underrepresented in games are those who are more likely to ask for more representation.

However when it comes to the devs, they should heed these results and instead of pontificating on Twitter and blog posts they should just get on with it, actions speak a lot louder than words, especially in areas such as this.

I suspect a lot of boys are saying what's expected of them when they say they don't care what gender they play. There is a contradiction between popular culture and mainstream culture when it comes to gender issues. Popular culture always changes faster than mainstream culture. Culture never changes over night but in a long process based on some kind of dichotomy.

The words here are suggesting that the boys are largely not as sexist as often pushed. And the girls are taking on more extreme divisional attitudes. Could just be in vagueness though

There are quite a few studies that show that while women have an in group loyalty, i.e. will tend to stick up for their fellow sisters, men do not have such an in group loyalty, in fact many have this sort of 'one good man' theory playing out in their own heads. An ironic twist on what you usually hear.
