New Poll - AMVs
We haven't had an AMV poll in about 4 years, so as kuroihikari wants, why not? 4 years ago, I used to watch a lot more AMVs, but I don't think I've watched one in several years (partly because I don't watch anime anymore).

I'm male and I default female - votes: 157 (1.3%)
I'm male and I don't default to any gender - votes: 2365 (19.7%)

I didn't realize a gender question would be so polarized...sigh... So apparently more males voted in this poll, but at least 1 previous poll had more females. Most be that missing "other". Although it does appear that males tend to assume males, but females are more likely to not assume anything.
