Oh, the melodrama! Love it. The music in this one is wonderful too, and so seamlessly blended. Coincidence that most of the minor keys tend to be men?

I thought that the genders of keys based on the tonic note, not so much the tonality, because for the "male" minor keys, their parallel major also tends to be male, and same thing for the "female" keys.
