    Given that at least half of all yokai, gods and monsters of all mythologies are men, is there any lore reason why the characters in Touhou are all women or is it just handwaved by the creators being a bunch of perverts? If you got inserted into that setting as a magical being, would there be any reason why you wouldn't be a dude?

    ...Well, as far as yokai go, a good deal of the big-name ones are explicitly female, and a good deal of the male ones are too evil?
    Not being familiar with particularly many types of magical beings appropriate for Touhou's setting that aren't explicitly female, I cannot actually answer this question.
    It's possible that I'd rather end up female than something too inconvenient but technically male if it comes down to those two choices, and I don't know enough to be sure that it doesn't come down to that (though I admit that more likely than not it indeed doesn't).

    Besides, IIRC, some of the females can easily shapeshift into male forms?
