What generalr said is probably what I'd put the most weight on. At the very least, you'd have to write one different scene for every gender you've added, for most things. And I guess that could work if you have enough writers for it, but if you don't really have people who can dedicate to that, it might simply be too much work and too easily something that could get thrown to the wayside. And even then, you'd basically be forced to either write more scenes for different kind of personalities, or force everyone to have a protagonist with one personality, which kind of takes away from the whole 'important to roleplay' aspect.
Are you working alone? How many projects have you started, and how many have been considered completed? You might not want to get in over your head. It's easy to get burned out if you have to keep way too many things into consideration. Not only working on game balance, world and plot, but keep track of 3 or even more personalities and how they've interacted with the world.

I prefer being male, as I am male. But I don't like being the predator, so yeah.

generalr said it best. If you are telling a characters story, theres no 'need' for that character to have options.

If it's a 2nd person roleplay? It might honestly be easier to make /multiple entire games/ then get enough choice in a RPGmaker game. Only attempt if you are a skilled writer with a lot of time/motivation to write the sameish scenes with a bunch of different perspectives.

Incidently, when the option is there, I tend to pick whatever seems most intresting based on the game. Which is seldom my own gender. For something like Trials of Tainted space I'll just go with as meny parts as possible to get scene access >.>;

I prefer my character and most characters being male but I think the logical choice will be the ability to choose. That way you can satisfy everyone
