I know I am probably going to get a swift kick to the face for this since so many seem to become raging sacks of excrement when they realized I possess female parts and am not the 12 year old boy they'd hoped for (wtf?)
Anyways why hasnt there been an item that makes the players character use a new female model? Like a 'Gender Bender' item that turns the players choice into a female version of themself?
Personally I'd like to see a giant wall of a woman playing the Heavy complete with braided hair buns covered in muscle running about with a giant gun mowing people down. Maybe a spunky scout girl with a pony tail and a bandaid over her nose, running about whacking people with her bat. The pyro would be easy just giving him a slight bump in the chest and vuwalla, pyro has a new psycho companion to paint the world... well in flames...
Im not talking about giant boobed bimbos slaughting eachother in string bikinis, but female counterparts to the hilarious characters that currently populate the game. Character models that stay true to the same theme and work with the game.
With all the hats and items people get, Im sure selling or finding a 'Gender Bender' item wouldnt be too hard to consider some time in the future.
Also for those who want to whine about time period and the such... I am pretty sure there was never cow mutilators or teleporters in the time lines from 1822-1970's so trying to say that women fighting in 'those times' isnt realistic, you have an odd view on what is realistic.
Someone has already made a rather decent looking female spy counterpart ( http://fc02.deviantart.net/fs71/f/2010/200/3/5/Female_Spy_color_test_by_ChemicalAlia.jpg
) There is no need to add new female specific classes, just an item that changes the character model to appear as a female version is what I am suggesting.
