"Some Nickelodeon executives were worried, says Konietzko, about backing an animated action show with a female lead character. Conventional TV wisdom has it that girls will watch shows about boys, but boys won’t watch shows about girls. During test screenings, though, boys said they didn’t care that Korra was a girl. They just said she was awesome." by

Thank gawd for Korra, SBFF, MLP, and hopefully a growing list.
Boo for every time this “data” has been brought up, and hurray for the day when I can go to a pitch without hearing this.
Just make something good, give it some heart, and stop testing stuff till it’s just a bunch of mush.
