This is a difficult question to phrase succinctly, so I hope the title makes sense. What I want to understand is what seems like a lack of symmetry (besides SUSY-breaking) between the SM sector and their superparters.
In SUSY we add a second higgs doublet, so we end up with 8 degrees of freedom. Three are eaten by the SM gauge bosons, leaving 5 higgs bosons. My questions is: why are the 3 degrees of freedom eaten only by SM particles rather than 3 SM and 3 SUSY particles: why the asymmetry? Would the situation be different without SUSY-breaking?
If it helps to visualize the problem, the asymmetry is most striking if you imagine that we lived in a world where the mass scales where reversed: the SM is off at some high SUSY-breaking scale, and our world consists of superparters. Would we not have gauge theory and electroweak symmetry breaking, or would the gaugino sector require electroweak symmetry breaking?
