I feel like this might be a long post, bear with me.
I feel that male characters should not be added to the game. This is because: The horse world is often considered a boy’s thing by many (not all), games are often representing boys more than girls as characters, SSO has reason to make it a girl’s game, and inappropriate behavior may show more.
To begin, horse riding is often considered for males and is male dominated. Let’s break this one down. In horse racing there are very few female jockeys, especially as you get to the higher levels. Most higher leveled horse’s owners/trainers choose male jockeys. Which does not make much sense since females are usually shorter and smaller than males, so you would be able to find more women that fit the jockey’s requirements. Also in most rodeo events, lets take bull riding as an example, have very few women partaking in the event. Which SSO wants girls to be more associated with horse riding games.
In addition, boys are more often associated in games than girls. There are many girls that want to play games, but don’t feel included since the characters are boys. SSO really just wants to make a game where girls are more included.
Another reason, SSO has many reasons to have a girls game and to be proud of it. SSO has a very strong storyline without boys. They don’t need to add more to it to make it even better. After all, they don’t want it to just have so many elements to the plot that confuse kids, as the game is focused towards kids. Women and girls have been discriminated against for a long time. Don’t say that is not true, as women are still getting payed less then men, even if they do it better. Take the US soccer teams for an example.
Finally, more inappropriate behavior would show. After all, romance roleplay’s have been an issue, and that would just get bigger. Kids would be interested, and want to try it, and end up in nasty stuff.
Thanks for reading my rant. Overall, I do not think male characters should be added.
