    As of now, the gendar disputes on Deidara in the manga aren't important. Probably various conflicting translations causing the discrepancies.

    ^ Like I said, his gender was never in question (episode 135).

    He doesn't even seem very feminine.

    Deidara's a guy. anime proves it (kishimoto should throw a fit at the producers if this wasn't true.)

    reason for all the confusion is this; in japanese, when referring to someone in 3rd person, there isn't really any sort of specific words to tell whether its male or female, like the english word does with the word "he" and "she". the translator at the time merely guessed deidara as a she, considering he looks a bit like a girl.

    as for Sasori's usage of the word husband, again in japanese culture, the word has another meaning. aside from the connotation that we all know, "husband" and even "wife", in japanese, depending on usage, can mean "a very trusted close friend." far more closer than friends, lovers and family in fact (not necessarily gay). this is usually used by samurais or people who talk in an old way. one usage of the word in this form that i stumbled upon was in one episode of Samurai7

    those are used in a different context. for example; if you were to say "He uses clay" in japanese, they don't use the word kare. but if it was said as " that man uses clay", then there is an involvement with the word kare.

    trivia; the direct translation of kare kano (the series) would be "that guy and that girls circumstances"

    I would say they are both guys. Sasori was proven to be male by kishimoto. The flashbacks of sasori's younger days showed that. As for Deidara, well, he definitely sounds and acts like a guy. About the "her" thing, well, I believe it's just the translator's error. Most of the scanlations have horrible English errors because most of the translators are just horrible in English. I'm not saying that my English is very good, but at the least, I have good spelling. The most frequent errors are spelling errors. For example, the short for "they are" is "they're", not "there". This error is most frequently seen in most translations. So, I won't be surprised if the translator could have messed up the "he" to a "she".

    it seems you don't read a lot of different manga. take bleach's Nell for example. most translators think he was a boy, till it was mentioned otherwise. in the chapter notes that mentioned such confusion, the translator him/her self stated that there is no third person usage where it differentiates between sexes (he/she) in japanese that are commonly used like in the english language (kare and kanojo, again, are used based solely on how the character speaks, or the situation he/she is in and a number of other factors). many other translators in many other groups who has done different titles each has mentioned this when they're faced with characters of undetermined sex.
    Do I have to?
