Male option in y'all stories

Hello I’m new! And I was wondering if all y’all writer’s can make a male option in y’all stories where we can pick our genders male or female I really think it should be a male option in all Episode Stories so males can play episode too I really feel like they should be a male option in all Episode Stories I be wanting too play Episode but u have too play as a female I want too play as a male Anybody Agree?

I know a few good authors that have Male MC as an option (I have to find them first), and I know lots of other ppl in the community have good recommendations. I’ll come back with a few of my fave stories

I completely agree - as a result, all stories I make in the future will have the option to choose their gender. :grin:

It is becoming more common for authors to include a gender choice for the MC In community stories, but at the end of the day it’s a lot of cishet women writing cishet stories for cishet readers, most of whom are girls or women. I don’t see that changing on a wide scale. That being said, I too appreciate the opportunity to play as a male character and always choose a male avatar when there is a choice. There are more stories with male MCs, if not a gender choice, than you might think.

Here’s a thread with male MC or choose gender stories:

I love Dirty Boy!!!

As a writer, I can say that it’s not impossible but hard. If we give a gender option, we have to a whole lot of branching. And then you have other things like art scenes, covers, narrations. So each and every scene would change

Moved to Episode Fan Community since this is Episode-related. Make sure to check out our Forum Tutorial for more info about creating topics, and feel free to PM me if you’ve got questions. :smiley:

Yes!
I’ve been considering a male branch, but I already have a lot of complex branching so adding an additional branch would give me a headache and slow down the process of publishing because I’d have to change the spotting, outfits, overlays, dialogue, pronouns, scenes and get those branches tested too to make sure they work before I can press the publish button.

My story Riptide has a Male MC!

In general, all of my stories read views from both male and female protagonists. (So you’d read both perspectives).
