What are your thoughts about it? Do we need the men tag?
What would this tag be used for? The way I see it, there are a few options.
- Questions related to (human) biology
This would include questions about how different diets affect the male body. I.e,"Does not eating meat affect males more than females?" In this case, the tag would be better off as human-male-biology or some variation of that.
- Questions related to (animal) biology
I'm having trouble thinking of examples, but much like the above.
- Questions related to male animals
This would include questions such as "Is there any difference in the effect of meat production if I eat male animals over female animals?" This would be a tag such as... nope, I don't think a tag would be useful here.
So in any case, I would not have a men tag. It's too broad, and unclear what it would be used for.
No: because there's only one question which uses it and I don't foresee many others like it.
Most questions about V are (I'd guess) not gender-specific.
Tags are useful for identifying groups of questions (not individual questions), especially when that group cannot be found using Search.
Maybe you should avoid an unnecessary proliferation of tags initially, and add them later as needed (when categories of topic become apparent).
The social implications are clearly difficult but I think it may be necessary in some cases to discuss issues specific to either sex. May I suggest mens-health? Clearly concerns about prostate cancer or hormones are specific to them.
I am not sure whether we need a men tag or not myself, but I regret removing the tag: I didn't see the edit history. I suggest we just leave the tag, since the post author obviously strongly feels it's necessary. Possibly other people will find uses for it in the future.
I think it's alright to leave it as it is for now. It certainly classifies something and carries meaning that may be attached to and used to search for questions.
As for it being only a one question tag (as Riker's suggested reason for its removal in the edit history), while tags for one question are generally bad idea, I think we are far too young as a site to avoid this. I mean, there is almost twice as much users as questions, of course some tags will be unique, that does not mean they are not meaningful or useful.
The most probable on-topic questions would likely be about men's grooming products, men's clothing, or male health (as the question referred to is) ... or maybe, just maybe, about men's behaviour/psychology/ethics (slippery ... slope ... into ... a ... pro... or ... anti ...social ... justice ... site ... bias ...) ....
For the three (or four) categories, firmly establishing a canonical tag now might be a good idea.
