    I've noticed that alot of people argue about Deidara being a girl or boy. Anyways I came across this page of the manga, and Gaara clearly says that Deidara is a "she", so Deidara is indeed a girl. Sorry if y'all already knew/saw this..

    Isn't Deidara a guy? He speaks of himself using male pronouns.

    It's probably a mistranslation...HE'S A HE. They might have just gotten confused by the fact that he looks like a friggin girl and unconciously wrote "she"

    Deidara is a guy, it's stated that Dei's a dude. Though..when I first saw him, I actually thought he was a SHE. Same thing happened with Haku. Geeze..doesn't Kishimoto know the boundary between men and women?

    When I first saw Deidara I thought he was a girl at first. But then noticed that he is always referred to as "he."

    not to be chauvinistic/sexist but it would fit more with the whole art-theme if he were a she. Yah I know, van gogh, picasso, da vinci, Kishimoto etc. etc. are males but think back to when you were in elementary school - usually the girls drew better than the guys, were better at arts & crafts . . . right?

    Anyways considering he kind of looks lke a girl (cause of the hairstyle) and that Akatsuki is low on female members, +being artistic, it makes sense for her to be a girl. Mangakas have something with Androgynous characters, that's the way it is.

    Or gay, Zhang Fei. You know, when I was a kid, it was the guys who were better at art. The girls just sat around and gossiped. In fact, it was a guy who taught me how to do some really awesome origami, because he had a crush on me. So cute. But, off topic, so I'll end this post.

    Your not thinking of Blue. Ya know, or she could end up being a trap.
    Still, to me, Deidara is a girl. I like to stick with that other then argue with some people fucking shitting themselves because Deidara was called a she.

    from what i have read in translations, that is incorrect about the garra quote with deidara, also in the cover chapter which featured good ol deidara it said that he was a once a renown genius of the hidden rock village. Shannaro has been good with their translations

    I noticed that myself when we first seen Deidara, then in later chapters, I think he was referred to as a "he" by someone at some point.

    I honestly did think Deidara was a girl....but after a while, I realized that he wasn't.

    Well actually some women are know to also use male pronouns when she wants to assertive, self-assured,and direct. Deidara seem to fit in this category.

    The majority of translations indicate Dei as male. I've seen nothing in his actions or behaviors to indicate anything to contradict this.

    The reason it was mistranslated as "she" is because Japanese tends to avoid pronouns, and they're often used in a different fashion than in English. So when trying to translate something into a gender pronoun like "he" or "she" it's usually at the liberty of the translator to decide (assuming of course that it's ambiguous, as Deidara is.")

    And yeah, I kind of wish he was a girl too. Not that it stopped him from being totally badass or anything.

    I find it disturbing that you didnt realize the translations are done by fans and alot errors can happen.

    I wont even mention the whole issue with the Japanese language.
