The Creator Of ‘Minecraft’ Reveals That His Game Occupies A Genderless World

via Business Insider:

Markus Persson, aka “Notch”—the legendary creator of “Minecraft”—has revealed in a recent blog post that all characters in his game occupy a genderless space.


Persson writes that despite the main character being named “Steve,” “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.”

A short, yet eloquent and insightful post, Persson concludes with, “also, as a fun side fact, it means every character and animal in Minecraft is homosexual because there’s only one gender to choose from.”
