I'm sure some of it has to do with my political inclinations, but I'd say a good chunk of that disparagement comes from marketing mishaps that I've seen happen in the marketplace.

We've heard from both Paul dini and Giancarlo Volpe about the role that toy companies play in the life of an animated series.

Marketing companies consider a large female fan presence as detrimental to the selling potential of what they deem to be a primarily male property.

Disney, who makes most of their money off of their princess lines, changed the name s of their Rapunzel and Snow Queen movies try to win over a male Market.
