    Steve was around first so he had more time to get more attention.

    I like Alex and I figure she's just getting her time in the spotlight since she didn't show up until later.
    Steve and Alex are a team, and they always will be, and I have zero concern for any of your points whatsoever.

    And I'm male, if that matters at all. Which really, it doesn't.

    It scares me how quickly people can go from "gender equality! Yay!" To "burn all women at the stake!"

    Anyway, Mojang has been pushing for years to get girls to play minecraft in larger amounts, and the introduction of alex was a major step in that. Microsoft isn't an evil organisation with a secret feminist agenda, they're simply a company trying to expand the playerbase of one of their most profitable games.

    On another related note, Steve is still the default avatar and is far more iconic than Alex...
