I just had another thought...my two eldest brothers are 23 months apart and my eldest brother was very jealous when my second eldest brother was born. They have a big rivalry between them and though they played together as kids they haven't really gotten along since teenagers.
So having two different gendered kids close is probably good...my third brother & I never were very competitive as we were good at different things. We didn't hang out much as teens but have lived together as adults (to help each other out) and we talk a lot more than we do with our other siblings. We also have a lot in common as adults too.
If your DD is very girly your DS will probably be ok with that when he's young, when they're older there's plenty of games were your DD can be girly but your DS doesn't have to - ie. Dress ups or imaginative games. My brother managed to turn 'school', 'shops' and 'mothers & fathers etc' into non-girly games too.

Also, I have 2 brothers and 2 sisters.. My younger sister and i are 13 months apart to the day. My brother and older sis are 12 months and 15 days apart. We all get along great, but boy we can fight! I loved having a best friend to grow up with (my sister). Close in age can be a very good thing..
