the gender of my characters

wow, I didn't write in a long time, too busy with facebook or what?
Okay, this is how I am writing the gender of the characters in my plays these days. I usually look for names that have no gender, but if I am writing in the context that I have to say if it's a man or a woman, then I write knowing if it's a man or a woman or whatever gender the character has/is/. I keep going. Then when i finish the scene or act or play, I switch the gender.
Even if we don't like it, but we all have stereotypes and shit to deal with, but then when you reverse the gender, ( I know there's more than two genders, but I am saying for the sake of writing the play), it's so much more interesting
