I have found myself using GW emotes as well and being annoyed when they don't work.

But well, we all know that the female dances in GW1 were often about boob wiggling (ele) and such.
It's really embarassing. And non-immersive.
Every time a game developer does gender specific stuff you get things like that. And I don't like it, I liked it like you had it in AO - you had 30 dances which were mostly rather cool.
1 out of 8 female dances were about boob wiggling. 1.5 out of 8 were sexualized (I will almost
give you the ranger dance for the final part but it really is just the female version of the male warrior dance). All 8/8 were references to real dances, or combinations of them with the ele being a hula dancer.
I am not going to argue that the ele dance was overly sexualized, but saying that splitting the male/female dances will result in this is obviously wrong as the vast majority of GW1 dances did not fall into that type of design. Even ignoring the GW1 dances (they really don't matter for this) there is no reason that you can't have split emotes/dances that don't edge into the tasteless region of fanservice.
