Why are there no female characters in Team Fortress 2?

Team Fortress 2 - is a great Multiplayer game where you shoot the other team members and can select between different classes with distinctive professions. Look at the picture above, these are the different and well made characters with their own personality.

I'm playing it a lot and today my sister asked me why these are all male characters.

Maybe because most of the designers at valve are male?

Maybe 80% of the players are male as well, but some girls could relate more to Team Fortress 2 if there would be female characters. More female players would enrich the gameplay - I know several who have got the potential for being great spies ;)

We'll see if there are going to be some female classes or player models, I think it would be nice, but please not another Lara Croft with unrealistic proportions - you find enough of them already in nearly every game (Seraphin- Sacred2, Alex in Half Life 2 Fakefactory Mod ...)

there is a rumor around since a long time that the pyro is indeed female. and valve said, the "meet the pyro" video is the video they're having the most fun with. still, the voice mumbling doesn't sound that female..

I always figured that since TF2 is set in 1968, that there just wouldn't be girls on the battlefield.

Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids.
I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and
said "You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear." She
placed the shell to her ear and screamed.
There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
She never wants to go back! LoL I know this
is completely off topic but I had to tell someone!

I believe what you said was actually very logical.
However, what about this? what if you wrote
a catchier title? I am not suggesting your content is not good.

, however suppose you added a title to possibly get people's attention? I mean "Why are there no female characters in Team Fortress 2?" is a little plain. You could look at Yahoo's front page and watch how they write news titles
to get people to click. You might add a related video or a
related picture or two to grab people excited
about everything've got to say. In my opinion, it could make your website a little bit more interesting.
