First of all, let me state up front that the issue of Noah's gender is one of opinion. Based on facts from the game that are about to be outlined, Noah can be either a male or a female. It is up to the individual gamer to decide which gender he or she prefers.
Now, then, onto the facts promised.
Facts that prove Noah is a female
Facts that prove Noah is a male
And so it comes down to this: do you believe the single reference in the more canonical game? Or do you believe the multiple refrences in the less canonical (but still canonical!) instruction book?
Personally, I go with the numbers. It's easy to say that the one time the Governor calls Noah "her" is a mere slip of the tongue. It's harder to say, "All those refrences in the instruction book are wrong!" However, as stated above, the game itself does explicitly call Noah a female. Anyone who wishes to hold that opinion may do so armed with facts to back it up. I, however, will politely disagree.
I'll protect Algo -- and drink all I want! Ha ha!
