Meet the Pyro, whine about it keeping its mask on

After years of waiting, Valve has finally released Meet the Pyro, introducing us to the sugar-coated world of Team Fortress 2's masked flame fan. As you might expect from something fans have been aching for ... it was met with a significant amount of whining from the audience. 

People are mad because the Pyro remains masked and there's no definitive proof that it's a male or female. It was decided by some fans a while ago that the Pyro is a lady, and without proof, they're crying up a storm. This is stupid, because masked characters are awesome, and they become distinctly less awesome when you take the mask off. See: Kane from WWE, Judge Dredd, Darth Vader, and almost every other masked character everywhere. 

This infantile, "I MUST KNOW AND SEE EVERYTHING" attitude is why we get shitty prequels all the time, kids. Let some mysteries stay mysteries, okay? 

As for the video itself? I thought it was hilarious. Screw the haters.
