I kid you not. The official response from the company (written by a woman, I might add) included this sentence: 'We have found boys do not want girl characters on their things (eeeww girls! Yuck! Haha).'"

Hahahahahahaa! NO. We cannot continue to let companies that spend millions upon millions of advertising dollars (the sole purpose of which is to manipulate consumers into purchasing their product), get away with coy (and downright ridiculous) responses like this one. Advertising and media marketing influences our perceptions, and by extension, our behavior. Business people know this. Politicians know this. EVERYONE knows this.

Do you think boys would think girls were "gross" if girls were treated in the media in the same manner as boys? Do you think boys would think girls were "gross" if the were consistently exposed to badass female characters to whom male characters turned for help and guidance? No. Enough with these feckless excuses.

"It’s not just your one design. It’s your design, with all of the other designs in the industry, in our daily lives, that tell girls and women that they are not worth it, they are not as important or capable. And even more dangerously telling boys that girls are worthless and yucky."

This makes me wonder how Disney (and others) controls its licensing - allowing only a portion of equally-starring characters to be used for marketing?  The writer should continue to pursue the issue all the way back to Disney.  It's unfortunate so much of the entertainment industry is stuck with the old-school marketing machines thinking they know how to make the calls (which goes much further than the issue here, but that's an entirely different beast).

Story
Tagline
Efficiency Lover. Photog. Policy Wonk. J.D.
Introduction
I am an attorney who loves photography, public policy and women's issues (just to name a few). I'm a hard worker (I worked full-time during both undergrad and law school), and I've worked for elected officials in all three branches of government. In addition to my policy background, I've run a successful photography business since 2011.

One of my broad goals is to help enable the modern workplace to better reflect the needs and desires of the modern family through public policy, individual private initiatives or both. The modern workplace is still largely structured around the false assumption that only one spouse is working and that the decision for both spouses to work is one of choice rather than economic necessity.

The United States is the only industrialized nation that has not yet implemented policies to ensure the long-term economic well-being of its workforce. Strong families leads to strong companies. Strong companies leads to strong communities. Strong communities leads to a strong national economy that will be well prepared to compete in the global marketplace. It's good business. It's good public policy.
