I think the may reason people get upset about the gender choices is because they really don't even matter because of the way Ubisoft handles AC canon. I mean, why give players a choice when your going to choose for them anyway? At least with Valhalla they tried to do something different that would make both sides happy but then the official comic comes out and this old debate gets restarted all over again. Either let both choices be cannon or don't have a choice in the first place.
I'm fine with playing as a female assassin. Just don't give me the choice to play as a male assassin only to say that choice is non canon.
This bug seems to pop up in random places. From reading through different forum post about this issue the most common places Male Eivor is bugged is Essex and Snotinghamshire. For Female Eivor it's seems to be the Norway portions of the game. So I'm guessing this bug is due to some code in the dialog not registering your Eivor's chosen gender and defaulting to the opposite one instead.
To be clear this bug isn't a dealbreaker (this is one of my favorite Assassins creeds yet and I've already suck a hundred hours in it) it's just a little annoying. I want my characters to be referred to by the gender I picked for them regardless if they're female or male. It kinda takes you out of the role playing aspect of the game when your badass viking shield maiden is referred to as a dude or your burly bearded berserker is called a chick.
I'm glad Ubisoft is aware of this issue. I know some people don't think it's a bug because of the endgame twist but It clearly is a bug. A friend of mine plays a female Eivor and he claims that the npcs were calling her a he at the start of the game and my male Eivor is being called a she in Essex and Snotinghamshire, these are the only two places were my Eivor is referred to as a she. So there's clearly gendered dialog in the game that matches your Eivor's gender but it's seems to be broken.
