Why are yoyoers usually male?
Why are you asking this question?
I don’t really know the answer.
Maybe men like to use their time more for fun, but girls like other stuff?
I don’t know?
Ask a girl.
I don’t know, but my wife picked up one of my yoyos last week and is having a great time with it!
She can already do grinds, binds and a lot of intermediate tricks.
Probably the same reason most baseball players, bmx riders, and underwater pogo stickers are male.
Reasons, reasons, and more reasons!
Maybe a lot of them think it’s a waste of time. :’(
I’ve seen a few female underwater pogo stickers in my time…
Seriously though, there’s no real explanation. I guess it’s just something that peaks more guys interest? like star wars or speed cubing or paintball.
Males are more hobby oriented than women.
I say it’s simply intelligence ;D . Which of course my wife is watching me type this and agrees that it’s intelligence. Of course her perspective is a bit different than mine .
Sounds like a girl asking, “Why don’t you boys like barbies?”
Probably something like this;
Bad bind “Ow! My hair!”
Why are most yo-yoers male? Please, don’t remind us #foreveralone
Same reason why most hobbyists or otherwise activity enthusiasts are male: we’re attracted to novelty.
why don’t you try and teach more females ?
Am I not supposed to like Barbies??
My mom had a theory that boys like skill-based hobbies but girls prefer to do something that ends with a physical, finished product (knitting, writing, etc). Not sure if there’s truth behind that.
Personally I think it might be kind of a vicious circle; hard to break into an almost exclusively male community, so girls kind of get driven away. As evidence I submit the comments on any video of Ann Connolly.
Simple. Parents are much more likely to hand a yoyo to a son than they are to a daughter. There’s no right or wrong implied there, we just have very well-defined ideas about gender. It’s the same answer to the question, “why do only little girls wear dresses?”. There’s no reason a boy can’t wear a dress, except that his parents are just not likely to put him in one because he is a boy.
As we grow older the issue is complicated to the point of near-impossibility. Once a girl is “conditioned” to accept the common feminine role, we can no longer base her choice not to yoyo on being a female. It’s too late to base it wholly on biology.
It won’t be a problem, I mean barbie lovers are mostly girls, and yoyo players are mostly guys. “Why does gamers are mostly males?” is a similar question…
It was a joke.
I don’t like Barbies.
