Those of you saying the current forms aren't gendered haven't taken a close look at them. The new tree and tauren and worgen bears have bears. The tauren and worgen cats have a mane. With the exception of the moonkin and night elf cat, everything else has sideburns. While most of these animals do not have huge gender distinctions in real life, Blizzard's artists have gone out of their way to impose them on our druid forms. I'm not asking for separate forms for ones that already appear unisex. Hell, I'd be fine if they redid them all so everyone's androgynous and gave us no option, so long as female toons aren't shifted into something that's clearly male. I'd even be fine with one race on each side with all unisex forms!
Hopefully they realize girls play the game too and give us some alternatives. It's kind of sad they find it okay to leave that out in this day and age.

I have to agree that with the exception of the Nelf cat form and the current Treant form, everything else is more masculine than feminine. Props to Mipeo for the concept, really loving the subtle size difference and the hair/manes thing.
IMO if they absolutely only have time to do 1 model, please make it the new Tree form! It has a leaf goatee! >.<
Honestly, like others have said, it's not that hard to take the current models and make them less gendered, to either make them genderless, or to actually make gendered forms.
Little things... you don't have to completly remove the tauren cat's mane to do it--there is a species of lions where the females have manes. The name escapes me, I remember seeing the special though--just take off that awful beard. Same with the bear's beard. Reduce/remove troll sideburns. I think the Nelf forms are actually fairly androgynous. Tauren changes would apply to worgen, as well.
