2. How many characters do you have? Do you prefer males or females?
If you really wanted to be sensitive you’d avoid binaries altogether, meme writer. (“Females” always makes me think of those “nice guys” who say “ladies” all the time. Brrr.)
I have between twenty and forty characters currently taking up brain space, not counting fandom/roleplay characters. It’s mostly men, since that’s my chosen genre, but writing women is a lot of fun, too. (They tend to be the voices of reason among the histrionic and dramatic boys.) I have not yet tried any characters who don’t conform to traditional definitions of gender, but never say never. There are a lot of things I haven’t tried yet.
