However, doyou accept that it is a franchise that has more gender balance?
Does it count as "gender balance" when slightly more than a third of the female characters are exemplars of gender stereotypes?
Compared to what else we have currently I'd so, "Only a third? That's pretty good!"
Compared to Star Trek, it isn't.

Because when it comes to gender stereotypes, "zero" is still preferable to "one third."

I'm sure more than a third of the male characters are based on gender stereotypes too
Which isn't really helping your case all that much.
