Because there's confusion...
...which has now confused me. For the record, I've never personally seen Knit Cap (Girl) as anything other than a girl(/woman), though of course there are other knit-hatted characters who may be one or the other gender (or maybe either?), as discussed in the main page.
So I reacted strongly to one page-edit (Lorenz) reclassifying her as him - in one place only - and reverted and augmented the revert to reinforce my opinion. Somehow, despite being a long time reader, I seem to have missed this controversy and been blissfully happy to assume KCG is the (sometimes) specifically nerdy character who is unimpared in this role by being clearly enough female. Or so I thought. I can't seem to unsee this, but I now foresee others arriving who have never seen them as anything other than male, for whatever reason. But not wishing to revert my own revert (both because I see no need and because it's bad practice to edit-war with oneself) I thought I'd make a note here as to my recent intervention, and let those of the community that wish to work out (afresh) where the matter's solution lies. 220.127.116.11 20:15, 16 August 2022 (UTC)
