The Sniper's VA supports something called gaymercon

Wow, they need their own con now? Whatever happened to equal rights?

Why would someones sexual orientation be exposed in an online game unless the user disclosed it for some kind of response?
"lol gaymer here, dont hit on me silly bears"

Unless this is about the 90% of the male population that uses "gay" as an insult? In which case, don't we already have commercials about that?

Easily the best post you have seen all day.

That's what I don't get. "Hey, I'm gay, guys!" "Ok, whatever dude, we're just here to play games, not sure why you're bringing that up".

Some people in the comments claim they've gotten hounded at conventions and followed around and yelled at and junk. Well, for one, I've never heard of anything like that until now, and two, how did they come to find out you were gay anyway? I mean, I guess they could see you kissing a guy but in that case I'm pretty sure security will escort away anyone who is following you around and screaming at you.

And I agree that trying to reduce segregation by segregating yourselves into one place makes no damn sense. The kickstarter claims they are doing it to also tackle the issues of racism and sexism in gaming culture and the industry but even those are just ridiculous complaints in 90% of the scenarios.

Then I want a black gamer con. Who's with me?


Then I want a white gamer con. Oh but THAT would be racist.

You know what IS racist and such? Having these things which only certain people can join, things that don't affect them as a human being. Scholarships only for blacks, native americans, etc., cons for certain things where the focus of the con itself has nothing to do with said thing.

Here's another example. You've all probably heard of furry conventions. A place for furries to go and talk to other furries about furry things (lol). That's fine, no problem. But if they made a furry gamer con, that would be stupid. Unless it was to discuss only furry games (not likely).

I don't think there are any gay based games for this gaymercon to talk about, therefore it's stupid and I don't support it.

It's quite dumb in its entirety.

"Sure, you're gay. I don't really care, man."

The idea of equal rights has evolved back into separate but equal. These groups want to be separate from the mainstream and have everything their own
