Why does MiDATA require my City/Town and State/Province during registration?

Why does MiDATA require my 'Preferred Gender for Ads' during registration?
This field is “required” in the registration process in order for us to create the best experience of ad targetting possible for you as a member. We are very conscientious of people’s sensitivity toward this issue so we want to be able to provide the ability to indicate one’s preference in this matter right up front.
Setting this also makes it easier to capitalize on your data’s value by being more specific about yourself. It will provide much more relevant and interesting advertising choices for you to be a part of and interact with, without being mis-targetted or subject to ads they may offend you.
