    So, Paul Dini had a podcast interview where he discusses CN's demographic marketing strategy. It's one of the most maddening and depressing things I've ever heard.

    that is kind of depressing but I see what they mean, CN has had little to no girl centered shows on their channel like barbie movies and like that. They had winx club and sailor moon for awhile but I'm sure that drew more boys than girls.

    Who in CN said that? Who makes the decision to cancel gender-egalitarian shows and fire people who would advocate gender equality? There ought to be actual individuals who would take responsibility for that and face consequences other than some ambiguous loss of potential profits and a general climate of appalling prejudice.

    Besides, you'll never know what boys would really like any more, whether that's with partial irony or reclaiming something as masculine. Just ask the bronies!

    I agree with Smith. Even if girls don't buy action figures as much as guys do, they tend to buy more of other merchandises such as t-shirts, umbrellas, lunch boxes, watches & backpacks etc.

    They are losing themselves a huge market by confining themselves to such a narrow mindset and discriminatory mindset. There's only so much money they can milk out from the parents of boys. :/
