Why does everyone keep assuming Sylveon will only be female?

The fangs would make me think poison more than dragon. But poison is out of the picture unless its some sort of demon like a siren that attracts you but then kills you. So like sylveon could trick you then inject you with poison

That... would actually be pretty darn awesome

My best guess would be because it looks VERY girly.

If it's not female only, I know I'll only evolve it from a female Eevee anyway.

I'd never want one as a male.


I'm stubborn about the genders of my Pokemon XD


I refuse to have a male espeon or a female umbreon.


I refused to use a female Heatran.
When I finally caught a male one, I found out that he was Modest...
With Grass type Hidden Power.

Stubbornness wins again.

I refer to all eevee's as female. Just seems a feminine pokemon.

I do want to punch people who say it should only be female because of how it looks.

It's gotten to be beyond ridiculous point right now.

People keep assuming that it'll be female-only because they think it looks feminine. It's born out of a desire, expectation, or insistence that gender stereotypes be perpetuated. In other words, it's pretty sexist, not to mention ignorant of how other Pokemon just as stereotypically feminine (Gardevoir, Lopunny, Gothitelle, Munna, Clefairy, Jigglypuff, etc.) can clearly still be male.

Which is hilarious considering the gender ratio for the species is 7:1 in favor of male.

I'm wasting time and space by quoting you only to say you're awesome for that. I never really got how anyone could refer to a specific Pokemon as male or female when they can be either gender.

Is it because it's not a bird?
