I'm saying it already isn't just a line for boys, it's a line for kids who like action themes, which is predominantly male, which isn't me saying lewa shouldn't be female, so much as making lewa female isn't going to make girls with no interest in action themes gain an interest, so it's not a good justification for it.
But they can relate to male characters as well, I can't speak for everyone, but I relate to characters because of their personality and interests, not their gender.
It's not an argument for or against the change.
Girls who are interested in action themes, and construction toys, which is about the g1 gender ratio in interest, 1:5 girls to boys, if not lower judging by the fanbase.
I agree, in fact more variance in personality in all characters is positive.
Personally I don't see a single female in a group of males as representing more than that individual character, though I suppose not everyone feels that way.
I don't either, I think I may have come across wrong, it's not really the change that I have a problem with, I find it largely unimportant if unnecessary, I'm fairly middle ground on it, if you feel like lewa being female will mean you can write better characters then fine, I'm OK with that, I just don't agree with the argument that it will cause more girls to be interested in the tribal robots fighting to the death.
I apologize, I wasn't intending to strawman you, I read your comment as 'we're adding more females so that girls have characters to relate to', obviously this is not what you meant.
And how character traits are dispersed by gender, I find there's a correlation between the two.
Honestly I've kind of lost the plot as well, I think it's to do with changing lewas gender not affecting interest in the line.
I think the problem is with word choice, when we(general) talk about "boys toys" and "girls toys" we're referring to the group that majoritively has an interest in that type of toy, it's just a colloquial shorthand really, for action, construction, combat, versus suspense, aesthetic design, interpersonal conflicts.
Honestly this whole thing is really nuanced and complex, and also going off topic, I just don't get many opportunities to talk about gender and psychology in relation to toy design and marketing.
It was a good film with a female lead, the surge of female moviegoers is most likely due to diana being the poster girl of female empowerment and not simply because she was female.
I'll start by clarifying I think nuparu being a female engineer is fine, however an interest in mechanics and science and the like is more prevalent in males, it's due to biological differences, specifically brain chemistry, from what I've learned.
