Sure, the T-1000 can take a woman figure and the T-X seems like a woman too. But does the T-800 only have the male gender? Is there a T-800 feminine?

Update>>By Adamant comment, I mean your b option.

    As far as can be told, no. All of the ones seen in the shows and books are male. The T-900 had the option of female. – Valorum Jan 31 '18 at 19:16

    Could you clarify your question? Are you asking: a) Whether certain T-800 Terminator models can only take on the shape of people of a given sex? b) Whether some T-800 Terminators come with a female form as their “default”? c) Whether T-800 Terminators have a psychological gender, and if so whether that can be female? – Adamant Jan 31 '18 at 19:16

    Anyway, the Terminator model is independent of their T-number, so why not? In that case, the question becomes, why do we see so few female terminators. – Mr Lister Jan 31 '18 at 20:12

    Terminators are machines, they dont have gender. They are made to resemble a gender, but in their core they are genderless. – Alessandro Sanfilippo Jan 31 '18 at 20:19

In the 1991 Dark Horse comic series The Terminator: Secondary Objectives, there is a female T-800 known as Z000.M.

She/it was ...

activated by Skynet in response to an incursion by the Resistance cell led by Colonel Mary Randall into a fully functional Skynet network complex six months after John Connor destroyed the Master Control central node. Upon maturation, this unit was immediately deployed via TDE to reinforce C890.L in countering the human offensive. Z000.M's model appears as a large, muscular Caucasian female with long brown hair.

In the Sarah Connor Chronicles there is a female terminator named Rosie.

She is assumed to be a T-888 model, as she is inferior to Cameron (who is either a T-900 or TOK715).

    Her model number is never confirmed in either the show or the supplementary materials. There's no more reason to assume she's an 800-series than that she's some sort of weird one-off model like Marcus Wright – Valorum Jan 31 '18 at 19:43

    Indeed. the linked page says, "appears to be no more advanced than the average T-888" but then it goes on to list more advanced features such as the self-destructing CPU, the improved flexibility of movement etc. – Mr Lister Jan 31 '18 at 20:24
