The purpose in the tag is organization. It helps a lot of peole differentiate between a male or female lead band/artist. It helps me a lot, considering 99% of my music is female lead music. I can easily find new artists with the vocals I want, because they are not male vocals lol.
Anyone trying to prove a sexism point is just dumb.
"This tag is ridiculous" ... tags are just supposed to be ways that people can organize their own music. What's ridiculous about taging the music you own that has a female singing with female vocalist? Not all tags have to be genres. I could even make a tag for each color. Don't take tags seriously.
@JenCantodea 7,686 people say "yes there should be a '[url=http://www.last.fm/tag/male%20vocalist]male vocalist[/url]' tag". Tell us what the harm is. I must admit, [url=http://www.last.fm/user/JenCantodea/library/tags]your tags[/url] are far more imaginitive though.
