*** Actually, this was attempted much earlier in England. Henry I's son died at sea and he made his daughter, Empress Matilda, his heir and made his baron's swear allegience. However, upon his death, his nephew Stephen with support of some Barons usurped the throne. The lead to a long civil war known as The Anarchy. Matilda did manage to dethrone Stephen for a brief period, but ultimately he regained the throne. He was eventually, forced to name Matilda's son, Henry II, as his heir.

** The spirit of the Avatar has reincarnated into both male and female over the centuries. The Avatar is respected no matter which gender the current incarnation takes. However, the age and training level of the current Avatar WILL cause that respect to vary.

** The General stated that it was the only incarnation so far where she'd been male, which fits with most of the past where The Doctor, Romana, Borusa, etc had always regenerated into the same gender. This would indicate that gender identity has an influence over the process.

*** What the game did have, all through 1st Edition, was an upper limit on female strength - it affected only those females who played fighters, rolled an 18 for strength, followed by 51% or higher on the "exceptional strength" bonus. Anyone of either sex who wasn't a fighter didn't roll the bonus percentage even if they had an 18 strength, nor (obviously) did anyone who didn't have an 18 strength in the first place; and the various belts and gloves that conferred fantastic strength worked just fine regardless of the gender of the wearer. Eventually TSR caved and this rule went the way of all flesh.

* ''Webcomic/StandStillStaySilent'': In that world, the military exists mostly to fight PlagueZombie monsters, so gender seems to have little importance as long as one is TheImmune, while population category that tends to kept away from the front lines and protected is the portion that is not TheImmune. Where the story itself is concerned, the expedition's organizers didn't think twice about having two women and three men share a small dormitory aboard an AwesomePersonnelCarrier for several months. In addition, the crew TeamDad is female, the TeamMom is male, and neither ever got any in-universe remarks about having a behaviour more appropriate for the other gender.

** Interestingly, Master Chief Urgayle also cites a real-world limitation of this trope, discovered when the Israelis and Russians both tried to field gender-unified combat units: men seem to have an instinctual urge to protect women, even when the women in question are fellow soldiers. In the case of the Israelis, this led to a degredation of unit cohesion, as the male soldiers would abandon their mission to rescue wounded female colleagues. (The Russians abandoned the idea of employing female combat soldiers, while the Israelis began using segregated combat units of both all-male or all-female combat soldiers.)
