Right off the bat, I'm at a disadvantage because I'm certainly neither young nor female.

Terada never used the word "target market", and never suggested marketing to young females was to the exclusion of other groups.  In fact, his other comments in the interview about spending so much time and energy on developing the E-M1 and how its success with enthusiasts/pros may trickle down to other models because others ask such people for advice, makes clear that enthusiast/pro cameras are viewed as central to the company's success.
