I voted what I'll most likely play first, male me / male it.
It all depends on what I decide to play first up until that point. It sounds sexist but real data can back it up, casters tend to be played by females and physical dps tends to be male players... except rangers but I think thats because of the pet. Regardless, I usually end up following those ingrained stereotypes when making characters.
So tldr, male because I'll start with a warrior most likely then end up playing a female mesmer more later.
