Just to offset "traditional" gods of monotheistic religions, who are either males or sexless.

I figured it was at least partially a culture thing - think of all the computer voice interface thingies you can from, say, television and games. I'm willing to bet that at least 95% of them are female.

Feminine voice seems to be easier on nerves.

I remember reading something about that - people tended to feel intimidated, if voice interfaces had male voice.

Maybe because a man's voice makes people think of HAL.

Remind me to send you Shodan`s voice files sometime. (my avatar) You`ll see, that female voice could also be disturbing.

L-l-look at you, poster; a p-pathetic creature of meat and bone, sweating and panting as you r-run through my f-forums. How can you c-c-challenge some guy in front of a computer with a glass of water at his side-d-d-de?
