So as I was playing Skyrim, I began to wonder, are there female dov? All of the dragons that speak to you are male, but some of the random dragons that inhabit the dragon lairs could be female...

(This is pretty unlikely, I know)

As the book states, dragons do not have a gender per say, although they do seem to be more masculine than feminine. I think that it goes to what Paarthurnax said as "Dov wahlaan fah rel". These creatures were made to dominate and I think that a feminine voice would seem weak.

A feminine voice seem weak? When we want to we can be stronger than steel.

@Jade Stereotypically, masculinity connotes strength, courage, all that shit. Femininity was near opposite, weakness, "damsel in distress".

This was also not set in a time of feminaz-*cough* rabid feminism.

Nice save.

There are somethinig akin to female "dragons," called Jill, but they're not actually dragons. They're minions of Akatosh who's main purpose is to fix dragon breaks, and they take on a draconic appearance for that reason. They are female, however.

It's funny how we're calling them weak, when still, if you have a girlfriend they control you.

I may not be in the game itself, but I'm a female. That's pruzah ganog, good enough for me. I'm sure in the greater aspect of things, there probably were female dragons, but Bethesda more than likely wanted to focus on the whole "dragons are big, dragons are terrifying, hear their voice, fear their might" thing. I have to say, a female voice would be... ilkoth, awkward, for a dragon. Think of it as this. Maybe the males killed off the females, as they felt they were atumei, inferior, to the males.

(Sorry if those aren't the proper translations. I'm not well versed in the dragon tongue)

I didn't mean it offensively, I just merely mean that in culture usually. The males are dominant. This goes with español too.

It's probably for the better that dragons don't really have a gender, otherwise you get those "WAAH FEMINAZI ABLOOBLOO" comments.

Sorry, but it's kinda true. 

So, in a relationship between two girls, who "controls" who? 

And it is true in some cases, untrue in others. That is why you don't make generalized statements.

I was wondering the same thing, and came to the very same conclusion as Mirkrilaar stated. However, I do wonder why this language is gender specific, (rek vs rok)
If the dov have no gender, why would they care for such details? Does anybody recall dragons ever saying a third person singular? Humans I remember Einarth saying, "Rok/Rek los dovahkiin, strundu'ul." But does anyone remember Paarthurnax, Odahviing, Alduin, etc?
