Non gender specific Doctor Who?

From io9, calls for the new Doctor Who to be female:

In all the furor about the identity of the next Doctor Who, one group has been notably silent — until now. And, unsurprisingly perhaps, Britain’s female scientist demographic is hoping that the next Doctor will be… a female scientist. This latest casting recommendation comes from the UK Resource Centre for Women in Science, Engineering and Technology, who suggest that such a move would help inspire future female scientists

But he’s a boy timelord. Why would he turn into a girl? That’s like making the next james Bond female – or am I missing something?
