Default "women's" mtbs

What is the deal with those bikes you see -- mostly MTBs -- that have a
top rail that's neither parallel to the ground (thus, strong) nor low
enough to actually step through?

The only explanation I can think of is that non-bike people have some
Victorian-era cultural baggage that tells them the top rail must drop
down a bit if they're a woman Just Because.

A) Because they are supposedly ridden/stunted over rough ground, it
provides an extra gap for dismounting or lowering you seat.

B) In this day an age of patent trolling, it allowed them to avoid a
patent troll?

C) As suggested, unisex?
