There is no specific gender assigned to Oculus avatars. There are some body types that look more feminine or masculine, and there are some facial features and details that can be considered traditional gender indicators, like eyes with heavier lashes, redder lips, and facial hair.

Same i tried editing on all areas as well but all i can do is change the appearance like hair and clothes but not gender, i have put in a support enquiry to oculus and have had a reply but didn't help so i sent them more information back so hopefully something will come of it and if so i will also let you know.

I have the same issue, any solution?

Hey warfeous, we understand how confusing this could be. No worries, allow us to assist you with this. We have a varying selection of options for your avatar; they differ between female and male body types including your facial features, hair, and clothing. 

How do you change gender after it has been set?  Try setting it once, then changing it.

No real issue they keep telling me there is no gender their is just different body types and so forth but 1 it asked my sex and 2 the pose my avatar makes is very feminine or very gay in a stereotypical way

that is all wrong you ask for peoples sex, so why is there no way to change it? and why is the pose the avatar doing very feminine because my partner said female and im male and even if i change the body type its still posing in the same way. FIGURE IT OUT AND FIX IT GEEZ JUST ADD A SEX CHANGE OPTION THEN ITS DONE HOW HARD IS THAT SERIOUSLY
