I do regular Pokémon giveaways on Tumblr, click here and come trade with me!
I don't give a damn.
I honestly couldn't tell you the gender of 99.999 percent of the Pokémon in my games, and I don't really care.
The exceptions being my Espeon and Umbreon from Colosseum-- because I spent a lot of time trying to reset for female ones, so I could get an Eevee in Hoenn (before FR/LG came out) and as you may know, they're programmed as male. And Pidove-- I really, really really dislike the male version of Unfezant, and it's my flier in GEN5. As soon as I realized it had very different forms for male and female, I was careful to catch a female one.

September 9 ~ If we had an open trade or request before I went MIA, please PM me and I'd LOVE to work out the details again.
Working on a Wishmaker Jirachi trade station (almost a giveaway) since I dug up my Bonus Disk, VM/PM me if you're interested.
The only time gender has ever truly mattered to me was (or rather, still is) in my Nuzlocke run in Crystal. Ironically, all of the Pokemon I've caught so far have all ended up being male, and I don't want to be screwed over by Whitney's constant spamming of Attract. But after that part is over, and in Nuzlockes of other games or in normal runs, it does not matter to me.
Though sometimes I do want specific genders if I want Pokemon who can only evolve by certain gender, or if I have this cool nickname in mind that can only work for one gender.

I always try to have an even amount on my team:
Take Black, for example:
My Serperior, Simisear, and Jellicent are all male.
My Vanilluxe, Galvantula, and Mandibuzz are all female.
In Diamond, I had male Infernape, Skuntank, and Drifblim, and female Weavile, Luxray, and Roserade.
In Platinum, I had male Empoleon, Luxray, and Tangrowth, and female Drifblim, Houndoom, and Froslass.
Doesn't always work: In HeartGold I had three male, two female, and one neutral. My Meganium, Donphan, and Gengar are male. My Dewgong and Ampharos are female. But I also had the genderless Ho-oh.

I've always had a tendency to train more female Pokemon than male. When I was younger, I would train only female Pokemon, but as I've gotten older, I haven't really cared much. XD
This is just me being biased to my own gender, but unless it's for breeding purposes I always make sure the Pokémon's male. No offense, females.

I often try to get same gender Pokemon on a team, like all males or females. I like consistency. But sometimes I'll not care about genders.
I only care about gender if it comes down to a certain Pokemon getting a certain nickname. Other than that, I can't be sussed to care.

I honestly only care if it's a dragon-type...for whatever reason, I like to name my dragons after candies (Skittles for Dragonite, Hershey for Hydreigon, Starburst for Axew's final form, etc.) Even though they're not very feminine (except for Dragonites...well, Dragonair and Dratini at least) I still like them to be female.
Otherwise, I go for a team that is about half-and-half. Three females and three males, but that's only depending on the nature and the IVs (which for me don't have to be perfect but still should be good, I mean, why would I want 31 attack on a special sweeper?). Sometimes it's a bit less even, but usually not. :)

If I were going to draw a Nuzlocke comic based on my game, it would matter. It'd be slightly easier to portray a female Gardevoir than a male one. But I don't do Nuzlocke comics, so it's not an issue.
