Honestly, I just like looking at attractive women.

I'd be fine with every character in the game being female -- I'd rather look at Ann, Shiho, Makoto, Futaba, Hifumi, Sae (etc) than look at the (male) MC.

Even "Mona" should have been female in my opinion...

...and a female Ryuji might just be tolerable, if only for comedic value.

Never in my life have I raped, or considered raping anyone.

if you're male that's a pretty blatant lie

every male does this whether they like to admit it or not

The male ego does not allow "rape" to exist. It's just sex the trick has yet to appreciate.


Stupid ads.

Stupid ass. I should've guessed before, but now I'm certain, you're a f***ing troll. Go find something better to do. Both of you.

You dicks can't be taken seriously. I thought i had seen the stupidest f***s the internet gad to offer, but you losers have definitely lowered the bar. Nobody with an IQ over 15 believes that crap.

Human garbage.

If you're trans-gender, you're free to role play and relate to either gender.......am I right??!

i mean that's fair but males dont have room to talk when all they want the femc for is their perverted fantasies


So what? What's wrong with it? Let's see your lengthy diatribe that expounds upon why it is bad.

Probably because in the PSP version of P3, having a female protagonist changed things around in terms of social links (or Confidants, same difference, really).

Thing is, I just don't see the plot working with a female protagonist. The plot kicks off due to a politician getting a guy in trouble for "throwing him against the ground." Not to mention, a lot of the early game is structured around starting out with Ryuji, going out to eat with him, etc.. It's not like in Persona 3 where the plot is so generic, almost all of the characters fitting some anime cliche, and so little structure in comparison to Persona 5 that the character's gender could be changed without making some situations awkward.

In other words, it'd be a lot of work for something that, believe me, would be cool, but the only thing the female president could do different from the original protagonist in Persona 3 is render a very spoilerish scene moot with a maxed social link. I could see potential for it to undo a certain scene near the end of the game, but that's about it right now.
