New Facebook Profile Oddity

My Facebook profile was recently updated... and I find one thing a little bit odd:

Picture Censored To Protect Privacy, Potential Embarrassment

Why is it necessary to identify my family members as (male) or (female) in such a prominent way? Most everyone on Facebook lists their sex on their profile, but nowhere else on the site does someone's sex appear directly next to his or her name. I could understand it if this were Pat, or Alex, or Dee Snider, but Mark and Adam? I think it's pretty obvious they're not ladies.

Someone from Facebook care to explain this strange design choice?
