Technically about 2 billion of the 7 billion people in the world use the internet, so stating tired memes like "there are no girls on the internet" then arguing either side is kind of a moot point, because it's a guaranteed fallacy.
Anyways back on topic, I'm a guy, but my girlfriend also plays. I wouldn't be surprised if there are as many girls who play this as guys, or if in the future there are more girls than guys. Minecraft has a pretty unisex appeal thanks to it's emergent gameplay, and like games like Bejewelled I think it's something a large part of the population can pick up and have fun with.

this has been a constant 9:1 ratio of M:F the whole time this post has been up. I guess I would have predicted something more like 7:3 or something.
Eh, this isn't a very accurate snapshot unfortunately. A lot of minecraft players never even see these forums, and in my experience, every girl I've introduced to the game has taken to it immediately. So the potential is there for a pretty gender-even community because everyone loves building stuff. But most of those girls will dodge the inherently childish nature of the forums. Not that it isn't funny--I lol'd at the FBI jokes above that were recycled from 4chan--but, well, that is kind of a proof of concept.
It would be better if they actually just joined, as it increase the ratio of mature people to immature people, but that is another argument.
And I think the majority of minecraft players do know about this forum, esp. considering how word about Minecraft is spread, and how you can't just find Minecraft in a store, you almost have to hear about it from a friend and/or through a LP or etc.
AND since a lot of LP's (ex. Yogcast) post links to the forum because they may be testing out some special world (or something of that nature.)
Thing is, this poll is more indicative of the ratio of males/females who post on this forum, more than of the general population of the game. In most games, only a small minority of the playerbase ever participates on any dedicated forums about it.
just curious why you want to be "sigged" so much. are you in a contest? Unfortunately I don't have a "sig" and I'll prolly keep it that way:(
Quit indirectly begging to be sig'd. That never works.
And crap! the ratio went from being 91:9 or 90:10!
And @ who said we only have the -perception- of the males being the majority, it's not just a perception. It's fact, and statistical(heck, look at the poll above you!).
