I am glad you're amused as it was meant to amuse, but also to provoke some thought about it. :-) I'm happy folks that feel they have legit reasons for asking have stated their reasoning/intentions for asking. Perhaps it would be helpful to tell the sitter this when asking for the info. However, I still think many ask for gender or age just to know. I especially find it questionable when readers state they will not read without this information. Seriously?! By law I don't have to state this on a job application, but I have to tell you?! It might be worth it for some folks to examine their biases regarding age and gender when they read in regards to why they need to know.
