The XX Squad's lineup is constantly changing, and it's sometimes all-female and sometimes fairly evenly mixed.
The squad is so secretive that even its members' genders are unknown. There are rumors that all of them are women, but others claim to have known males who were members, and nobody can be sure of the truth anymore.
Averted: The squads are all mixtures of men and women.
Enforced: "This show is marketed towards women, so let's have a fighting squad fully of women."
Lampshaded: "Not one man in the squad? What do they do for fun?"
Invoked: "Fire all the men and hire women in their place. NOW."
Defied: The squad make sure to recruit exactly 50% men and 50% women.
Discussed: "They're called the XX squad? Does that mean they're all women?" "That would be impractical; I doubt it."
Deconstructed: XX Squad is deployed to a region with incredibly misogynistic insurgents. Since they do not fall in a traditional gender role, they are targeted more often than other squads, and suffer heavier casualties.
Reconstructed: XX Squad is an elite branch of the military assigned to higher risk missions. Thus, the higher casuality rate. The squad was developed in a misogynistic area on the reasoning they would be underestimated.
Played For Drama: XX squad is deployed domestically. Upon experienced discrimination in their own country, they become disillusioned and go rogue.
