Gender what?

There's a blog -- which I won't link to but it's pretty easy to find -- that assigns what I've come to call "vanity sexualities" or "vanity genders" to cartoon characters (mostly anime, something I've never been into, so for I'll I know, some of these "assignments" might be accurate). It's largely harmless and in the big ol' world of Tumblr, one of many niche blogs, but there's something unsettling about labeling anyone -- anything -- demi, a-, sexual-gender whatever that isn't your creation.

And I can't help but think of this.
