Would you be more likely to listen to a band if it was female fronted?
I don't think we'd be more likely listen to a band if it were female fronted. Sometimes, we've listened to an unknown band just by their album covers (not knowing if it's male or female fronted).
Now... speaking of "gender". Personally, I would never advocate for a move toward a gender-blind society. I think our differences (including our gender) is what makes us pretty damn cool. But gender-categorization - meaning what men and women should abide to because it's "gender appropriate" should be abolished from our mindset.
We're all different - let's embrace that... But just 'coz I got balls doesn't mean I'm brave enough to wrestle a lion ;) LOL
