@LipstickAs a male healer myself (my main and by far favorite toon is a holy paladin) I agree and think that healers often go unnoticed in the background. In fact, we are only really noticed when we screw up. I think it takes a lot to become and play a healer cosistently because of the fact that most of the attention you get is criticism. Healers are almost always the first ones to get blamed for a wipe and it can be very discouraging. There's.a lot of pressure being a healer especially when trying to progress into heroic raids. Now I have played with female tanks, dps, and healers and from what I have gathered, It's about the perso, not the gender. I've met women who love dpsing and refuse to heal or tank. I've met women who don't do anything but tank. We each have our own preferences that cannot be accurately described in a stereotype. I may be wrong, but I remember reading somewhere that 42% of games are female. To say that "all females are healers" is ridiculous as it would mean that just under half of the playerbase is comprised of healers. Since we all know that that's not true, it only makes sense that neither is the stereotype.
