I think what LeoXiao meant was not that the Major wasn't feminine, but that she did not have a dainty build. True, she was a very curvy and attractive woman. But she was also tall, broad shouldered, and had muscled enough to handle large weapons and do hand-to-hand combat with men twice her size. This new version of the Major doesn't look like she can handle all that.

Also, I don't like the grey eyes. Something about them always struck me as... I don't know. Maybe empty is the word I'm looking for. Anyways, maybe she gets an upgrade between this prequel and SAC to become the Major that most of us know and love.
