No, but this statement was based on previous posts from the OP which were
sent to the wasteland that's the Windows advocacy chalkboard. Affinity for
female vocals can be interpreted (but those who desparately want to believe
it) as femininity.

Why, what's wrong with some /non/-pop-like vocalists that are female? I'll
admit that I don't care for all that actress/entertainer/singer culture of
if-you-can-do-one-thing-then-you-can-do-everything or
give-me-some-lights-makeup-and-rhythm-and-I'll-show-my-booty approach. But
not all music is like that. Just /modern/ music...
