Honestly the idea that male players want a female protagonist is super creepy, considering they'd probably just want to look up her skirt or something

Like it's okay for female players since they're y'know female but male ones have no excuse
Mistranslation, plot hole, or bad writing?

My sister wants a female character, but specifically for better immersion.

BTW, is the P4 protagonist a player stand-in, like the MCs in Pokémon, or are the not supposed to be us at all? ...Just asking.

And I think males who want a male protagonist are very insipid. Especially when it's a 'create your own' and they basically make themselves.

I dont think it's such a bad thing. I just like role playing is all.
