Surge 2 protagonist is a female?

Is there an option to play as a man? I have zero interest in playing as a female character.

Yes, I remember in one of the interviews the game director mentioned this although screenshots of char editor have not been presented yet to my knowledge.
"You can create the look of your character, so hair, skin color, gender, whatever. There’s also a layer of clothing you can change."
