Our guild has 3 females who currently raid. 1 Mage, 1 Shadow Priest, 1 Holy Priest. The rest are all males mixed of dps, tanks and healers.
I find nothing girly/manly about either role.
I disagree. There can be skill in healing, art in DPSing and science in tanking.
Just to untie the twist your knickers were in OP, I just created an account to wikia and edited the said article to state "his or her" instead of her.
That's how wikis work. Perhaps you can do it yourself next time.

've is short for have. C/Sh/Would've or c/s/would have. Not c/s/would of.
If it's indeed a stereotype, then it's a stupid one (I mean, just like the rest of them).
But I think you're worrying over nothing, since people usually write using their own gender.
I would say depends on what race :P In reality most Human Priests are male and most Night Elf Priests are female.
well most male wow players i know tank or dps, rarely heal. 90% of female wow players i know heal, the others dps. never known a tanking female
I tank heal and dps. But im a guy....what does this mean? D:
Hah. I was levelling my monk today, doing dungeons as tank for faster queues, and actually got a somewhat talkative group. One of the dpsers said his girlfriend hated WoW because he played too much, to which I jokingly replied that my ex broke up with me over WoW. So of course someone had to insert the obligatory comment about women. Except my ex was a man, which I told them along with a similar silly statement about "gah, MEN!". Silence from dpsers. Healer suddenly starts agreeing with me.
Honestly, people need to stop treating people like they act a certain way because of their sex. We're all individuals. Personally I've mained a shadow priest, bear druid, elemental shaman, holy paladin, elemental shaman again and currently holy priest simply due to the fact that all the healer trials kept failing. Being a woman doesn't really have much to do with my choice of class and spec.
I thought it was determined by classes, such as
Girl = Play a Paladin and/or Play a Priest
Guy = Anything Else
Say, "she." "WHAT, ONLY GIRLS CAN DO THAT?"
Say, "he." "WHAT, GIRLS CAN'T DO THAT?"
It's a lose-lose to be honest, that's why I use "they" even though it's not grammatically correct when speaking in the singular.
When writing things that can apply to either males or females, a person often arbitrarily chooses he or she - to avoid assuming all gamers are male, this person used the feminine pronoun. I don't think it meant ALL healers are female.
I think good tanks tend to be people who have more skills than brain power and good DPS the other way around.
I believe that good healers are generally both skilled and intelligent.
I also like to make sweeping generalisations which hold little or no weight.
*sarcasm mode disabled*
OT: OP is ridiculous. If you are really THAT bothered about being "manly" you first need to stop caring what other people think.
