I guess there's more pressure, my grandfather for instance was involved in nasa, so when we saw space movies with him, he got upset about the story because he kept thinking "that's not how space physics works." I personally don't like seeing a bunch of guys describe how "beautiful" my appearance is if I'm playing as a guy as well. Idk, i just don't think there's an easy way to do it personally.

Sure, I guess not, but alot of the experiences there are imagined and unreal, therefore it can compare to anyone's writing on the subject. Men and women are real, so writing from their perspectives should be harder. At least that's my own thoughts on it, as someone who hasn't written much, so take it with a grain of salt.

Why is that dude getting berated for saying he wants to keep a lock on the character when it's the solution for this problem?

Can't help but kinda agree with the guy getting attacked here. Anyone heard of Choices stories we choose or something on the AppStore? I recall how many of these games were inspired with a female protagonist in mind, so the occassional guy sides of it felt very tacked on.
I'm sure it has more to do with lack of interest in developing the guy side. Also relevant to a lack of experience on the author.
In their defense, I'm sure it takes extreme skill to write from the perspective of a gender you've never experienced before.
