And yet, today the show is going as strong as ever. Kids just can't get enough of it. Never gets old with them.

And anyone today that I show these intros here immediately falls in love and pretty much asks for toy figures. Yet noone cares about Starwars anymore.
The shows aren't even that good either to be honest, but by the intro alone pretty much anyone gets all pumped and excited for this franchise.
I found, even girls dig it a lot. Funny, huh. From what we are suggested, you'd think girls would like nothing but watching other girls own it.

I'm pretty sure RAV would include Anime to illustrate using actinomycin- D to block transcription.

It's surprisingly effective to illustrate the basics of Evolutionary Psychology at least.

But here is a more scientific illustration on how men are made.

Men want to be heroes, even on a small scale. They want to be useful, to provide, to sacrifice, or to maybe even lay down their lives. It's built into us to want to be that defender of the family, even if it's on a very small scale. And it's built into women to want to nurture and civilize. Once you start demonizing these natural desires of both sexes, people start feeling empty. And feminism came after and destroyed women's natural tendencies first and it's not trying to use pop culture to usurp and destroy men's natural tendencies.

How's that for talking out of my ass?

Sounds about right. And they have a big problem with marketing.

I can imagine the suits wished they could expand their franchises to a female audience, to double the profits.
You can bet that's exactly how feminist activist groups tried to pitch the deal to the higher ups.
But the attempt to have women take over for gaining more interest of a female audience are a failure.
Instead, the way they go about this costs them their male audience in the first place, so now it's nothing.

It's rather the other way around, the first Terminator movie resonated more with women.
If you haven't watched it in a while, watch again now, maybe you figure out why.
T1 is really half a romance story with a lot of danger, tension and mystery intensifying.
It really is the kind of story a typical woman would fantasize about, not just men.
In all subsequent stories they made the biological men weak and unattractive or even unavailable.
The problem isn't necessarily strong women, it is the pathetic men that ruin it most of all.
Just like the Witcher3 game character has a big female fanbase. Not TombRaider.
it's simply that women love men. Men being men. And men love being their man.

But well, even though their policy is clearly a failure, as you know Hollywood no longer makes movies to serve a market anyway.
Their monopoly allows them to try and sell their stuff by compensating with special effects spectacle and production value.
In other markets, where they don't have that monopoly, you see very clearly what choices consumers really make.

And lastly, kids are very honest about their wants. The demands of boys drive the market in toys and games.
In the movies they just don't see anything worth aspiring to, nothing worth becoming, so they have no interest.
So now they shift to other markets that give them exactly what they are looking for. So now it's the Asian market.
