Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
That's not really an answer at the "why", more a claim that "yes there is such a need". But I wonder. Normal human interaction also involves eye contact, gestures, a lot of things we do without on-line. I don't see why gender identification is different.

Maybe it's language. You can't say "he/she" in an asexual way in English. In Hungarian, it's just the opposite.

*Lunatic*, n.
One whose delusions are out of fashion.
