Just a quick poll I'm making for data collection regarding gender preference in fictitious media.

The "same sex/opposite sex" notes are relative to your own sex.

Feel free to post your reasoning if you want. I've always been interested in how different people relate to fictional characters based on gender.

As long as the story is good then both are fine.

I have no specific preference, mine is the plot and the wild story that the character brings

It doesn't matter much to me, but I'd prefer a female lead since I've seen it less often.

I've always been a sucker for female leads of the same sex

All I care about is GOOD lead characters. I don't care about the gender.

But it would be nice if there were more good, girl leads out there at all.

Don't really matter to me as long as the characters are interesting and I am given something that resembles a plot/story.

Good stories and interesting themes can be associated with either male or female leads. However, as a guy, I'll admit the average anime heroine is also pleasant to look at, and so prefer female leads.

I don't care either way. I'm kind of in the same boat as a number of the above replies... Just as long as the plot interests me.
