They will generally go where the money is and diversifying doesn't mean the studio will abandon it's previous audience anyway.
It is also because women are actually quite a powerful force in the matter of purchasing power. Especially in Japan. The paranoia is also caused by the fear that women are perhaps better customers, and that the male audience would lose KyoAni permanently. This is of course unfounded. Why selling to half the population when you can sell to everyone? But paranoia isn't meant to be logical.
