I prefer an all male crew as well.
What's the appeal of that, if you don't mind my asking?
First off for those making some inferences, I am not homosexual. Never was.

But I like the concept of all male teams involved in a common pursuit. Like football teams for example or the U.S. military before large numbers of women were allowed to join (my dad was a soldier back in that era).

All male organizations tend to function better than ones that mix males and females. Females are a major distraction and a source of tension for males. Males are far, far easier to control and command where not females are present.

And I like organizations will little emphasis on individualism but emphasize common striving for a goal.

One reason that I dislike emphasis on "character" in Star Trek and prefer a focus on "the plot" or "the mission".
