They have acknowledged that they realize there are male stampers and male demos, but for brevity's sake have chosen to use female descriptors in their publications. Papercrafting definitely seems to be a female-dominated hobby, and I'm always pleasantly surprised to meet a male stamper. As for the products, those of us with more sons and brothers than daughters and sisters have been asking for more masculine stamp sets and DSP and as long as we keep persisting in our requests (and buying the stuff they put out so they can see by the sales numbers that it's worth making) they'll eventually come through for us!
