I'm relatively neutral on the issue of Sheik's gender. It doesn't really matter to me either way. I mostly see Sheik as an extension of Zelda, but at the same time, I consider them two different enough personas to qualify as their own ships. (Like, Link/Zelda =/= Link/Sheik.) Yes, it's all about the moments! My main fandom is full of shippers who just ship for genders or hotness. They are CONSTANTLY just shipping two guys or two girls together because they look good together, and it doesn't matter that they'd probably want to kill each other. It annoys the heck out of me. (I always hate it when people turn a genuinely nice female character into an evil bitch just because she gets in the way of the mansex. Really, now? Are we that immature? I mean, there are plenty of other ways you can do that WITHOUT making the female character evil.)

I think they have a really beautiful relationship as close friends. Incidentally, and I'm just curious here, do you consider the TP-style Sheik to be male or female?

I guess I can understand it, people using their own names so other Youtubers won't steal their videos, but really now.
