Default Nintendo Confirms Toads Live in Genderless Dystopia

http://www.gamespot.com/articles/nin.../1100-6423610/

More at the link.

I noticed that this announcement has already got people heated.

"How can Toadette not be female??? She's pink and has pigtails!"

Just because someone has a particular hairstyle and likes pink doesn't automatically mean they're a girl. SMH.

Discuss toads here.

So now the question that comes to mind

How do these Toads reproduce. Is there a magical Toad Beanstalk where all the Toads are born from? Cloning?

Rumor has it that if the match lasts more than 60 minutes after a spore, the afflicted fighter mutates horribly into a Toad

Also that means under Peach's Dress, she's horribly, horribly infected with a Toad making factory.

People who are persecuted because of their gender and want to be recognized and accepted.

That's who.

I agree with no one cares, especially in Toad's case. Not even Nintendo bothered to give him/her enough backstory to even decide on the gender.

Still HYPE for Treasure Tracker.

It's not necessary to give weird mushroom-people (human) genders.

It's a subject which I've talked about in art where people feel the need to apply human gender norms onto animals, aliens, etc. It's most often used to reinforce heteronormativity.

Exhibit A:

bone titties
