This blog is mostly inspired by a post I saw on discord where people were saying how gender affects role play. One person said they received less rps as a stallion while another said they got more. In my personal opinion I think it has something to do with how someone has drawn their oc or the artwork they've used. The reason stallions seem to not get as many role plays is due to most not having good artwork of their oc. I've met many who have pony creator ocs as well as poorly drawn art. They might be good at role play but people, especially me, get turned off by the lack of good art. Another has to do with the fact that a lot of male ocs are simply out to erp (erotic role play). I've ran into many especially on ponysquare. There are many other reasons I could list but due to the lack of time I'll just leave it up to the reader.

Huh, actually whilst yes, gender and even presentation do play a role. I think there are other factors as well. Seeing that my character is a stallion, I tend to get roleplays and when I reach out manage to gain one. There are also things such as established members. Instinctively most will tend to ...View More
