Why write books where women are generally weak except for the heroine?
Why make games just for girls?
As a general rule, regardless of gender we're all on a spectrum of interest. Some women play lots of first-person-shooter games and others only play mobile ones. The same goes for men. All men don't want to escape into graphic violence any more than all women want to watch Lifetime Channel movies.
Over dinner with friends the other night we got talking about games that are made specifically for girls with the expectation that girls need their own games because they don't play mainstream games, which is just not true. There are issues with the way females are portrayed in some games, but even that doesn't keep all women and girls away from those games.
We don't need to create a soft, cozy corner just for girls. Sometimes boys need soft, cozy corners too.
One of the reasons I began the Dragon Clan series is that I was tired of reading books where girls are the exception as a warrior, magician, etc. I wanted Celia to be a pirate, which is odd in itself. She doesn't need to be the only female pirate in the world.
I see no reason to create any new barriers to entry for any form of entertainment. I hope just as many men and boys read my books as girls and women. Just because there's a girl on the cover doesn't mean boys aren't equal either.
