said:>5-To-1 Female-To-Male ratio.>Mares have a stronger predisposition to be able to channel powerful magic (or their larger ration means that powerful mares have more chances to be born/raised).>Unicorn mares can harness more magic into their spells and cast more complex incantations.>Pegasi mares can channel more magic into their wings and flight and control the weather much better than stallions.>Earth Ponies can channel more magic into their muscles and affinity to the earth and plants, making them stronger and better farmers.
Some stallions manage to surpass the average mare and even go toe to toe with some of the most powerful ones, such as Star Swirl the Bearded, Emperor Sombra, Shining Armor, and Big Mac, but these are in the minority and often lose spotlight to the mares.>In the military, almost all stallions have rank-and-file positions, while almost all of the leadership positions are held by mares.>Similarly, almost all of the political positions in Equestria are filled by mares. Mayor mare, the princesses, etc. Only Shining Armor and Blueblood stand out, and Shining Armor has already demonstrated to be a strong soldier and capable spellcaster, while Blueblood hasn't been shown doing anything but being a pompous aristocrat.
This could show sexism inherent in the system, or proof that there is some sort of neuro-biological difference between mares and stallions that make them better in positions of power. But...>All alicons depicted in the show have been females, a dream sequence of Big Mac being an alicorn, or mistakes/background jokes by the animators.>All of the Bearers of the Elements of Harmony are mares.
Among other possibilities.
I think it's safe to assume that the difference between human and pony gender roles are far more complex than a simply reversal of roles .
