"Women read comics. Anyone at all engaged in social media knows this. Women read comics and are a driving force behind fandom. I think I could call them the driving force behind fandom and put up a convincing argument. Just think about it: what fandoms have driven America crazy in the last decade? Could anyone dissuade me from saying that they were Harry Potter, Twilight and the Hunger Games? “Avatar” may have put butts in theater seats, but you don’t hear about it… ever. No one is immersed in the world of “Avatar” except James Cameron and people who enjoy wearing Na’vi Zentai suits. “The Avengers” was pretty darn huge and, if Tumblr is any indication, a whopping portion of the people driving that fandom online do not possess a Y chromosome. Women engage in fandom to levels that men do not. When women get behind something, their sheer numbers and passion force it into the mainstream. That’s why you can name the actor who plays that werewolf kid in “Twilight” and probably sing at least the chorus to one Justin Bieber song. What do tween boys like? I have no clue. Sports? Probably sports."

and yet men remain the most marketed demographic for just about everything.
I’m pretty sure the only men who spend more time thinking about DC than women on Tumblr are the men who actually work there.
tried-being-normal asked: Remus Lupin and Sansa Stark ?
Ok nice !
So Remus first :
OTP: Tonks. I’m a sucker for canon, you know that, and I love their story.
BrOTP: Remus and Sirius, obviously.
OT3: well, if I have to… Remus/Sirius/James. :p
NOTP: Hum, I have not often seen Remus in a pairing that irked me… Oh, wait, I know, Greyback !
Sansa Stark now :
OTP: Sandor Clegane, in a weird, almost platonic way, and after a loooooong time.
BrOTP: Margaery, probably. I don’t know how sincere Margaery is, but I like to think she has a genuine affection for Sansa and would do quite a lot to help her, given the opportunity.
OT3: Well… That’s a good one… Margaery and Dany.
NOTP: Littlefinger. This creep has me on edge everytime he speaks to her. But I think she’ll be the end of him, and I can wait to see it.
