    Not everyone has as negative views about the show/franchise as this lady. It seems it is helping Autistic children. However I don't see how that role would be diminshed in the least bit if for example they introduced more female characters.

      To be fair, I couldn't find even one comment that agreed with her position. A WHOLE lot castigating her and a couple assuming the thing was a joke, but none in agreement.

        Just to be clear, I have a very positive view of the show.

          It's nice to see your generally poor taste extends into entertainment as well.

            That's totally cool!

            I've never watched the show but seriously, why would you care if all the trains happen to be boy trains? The operative term is 'train'...

              Have you tried to find videos for young children that don't feature girls to the virtual exclusion of boys lately? There are paltry few. And young boys look for male main characters as much as young girls look for female main characters.

                I better just shut up now. I'm already always still in trouble again.

                  You've clearly never been to Tumblr. There's a 'lot' more people that would agree with this than you would think.

                    I didn't say I like watching it. Learn reading comprehension.

                          Don't worry, as long as you avoid the "social justice warriors", as they dub themselves, you should be fine.
