It's definately a stab at the community. People have been speculating over the Pyro's gender for a while but there hasn't been a definitive answer. I think we'll find out in his/her 'Meet the Team' video, which hopefully will be released with this update.

Man, valve changed that too. First they remove the spy from the background of the sniper update, now they remove that the pyro is female? I HATE VALVES MIND GAMES THEY ARE PLAYING WITH US!!!!

Yeah, that guy's original post was confusing, which is why I just ignored it lol.  Looks like he realized and deleted it.

This is why I think Valve is the best company related to videogames (next to Giantbomb, of course  :V ).  They love fucking with their community, and I love being one because of it.

There's a purse in the Pyro's locker on 2Fort. Take that for what you will.

@dsplayer1010: Not just 2fort you can see it on any map with a locker in it. Although the rumor is that its the scouts moms purse.

True. But I think that its been built up too much, so Valve will probably leave the answer ambiguous.

The thought of Pyro being a girl had never crossed my mind. 
Is there a Meet The Pyro vid coming?

I think this is Valve playing with peoples' heads and in a very amusing way too. Personally I think the Pyro is a man but I don't think Valve will ruin the mystery by letting us find out.

Pyro is obvs a robot.  Usually you can pretty much understand what people are saying through gas masks unless the speaker has a serious problem with HIS OR HER vocal chords, so therefore it's a robot, and a badly built one at that, because all it does is set people on fire.

Since you can't see the pyro's face, people like to say that the pyro is female, since all the other classes are male. "
The Pyro is a black female.

one of the maps where every class has a locker in the starting room has a purse in the pyro locker. So ya. I dont think they will ever say the gender, its to much of a mind game at the monent. My guess will be some back shot of the pyro in the meet the pyro video that hints at a female form but that's about it.

Oh good point, it also hits stuff with an axe.  Funny, we're still not really getting any further than the House Robots, though. Good job he's not Sentinel though, because that thing was completely useless.

They could change that down the line and claim one of the developers slipped it in without them knowing (when really they put it in to play mind games with us again). It's by no means official.

I certainly don't hope Pyro is female. She should definately stop taking testosterones then.

The pyro is Abe Lincoln 
(from the official tf2 wiki)
http://wiki.teamfortress.com/wiki/The_pyro#Trivia
"There seems to be evidence that the Pyro may in fact be Abraham Lincoln, former president of the United States. The original Pyro of the BLU team in 1850 looks similar to Abraham Lincoln, and when Radigan Conagher built both Blutarch and Redmond Mann life-extending machines, apparently a third was built on April 14th for an unknown user. Abraham Lincoln was shot on April 14th, and supposedly died on the 15th, leaving the possibility that he did not die, and is using a life-extending machine to be the Pyro we all know today. However, the disproving factors are that he was shot in 1865, 29 years before the machines were built in 1894, and Lincoln seems to have gotten much shorter and gained some weight. "

Was never a huge Metroid person, so I can't say for myself. I just kinda went "Huh. Okay" at it.
 
But on topic: These are the kinds of things that make me love Valve. They are so.. community oriented.

I maintain that Valve never intended for people to think that the pyro was a girl. I think the main reason for the purse in the gear was to just throw in something totally random that would make people laugh.

Ok i noticed something intresting.... those who have Poker at the inventory, know that The heavy is in that game, well as an unlockable you can have the TF2 deck, on that deck is the Red queen as  scouts mom without a top, and red underwear holding a blanket of some sort.... anyways but on the blue queen is a random girl with blonde pig tails, and a blue bikini, with blue boots. Rather intresting... could it be the pyro?
