You should be proud man! Because of your topic we will finally know the answer to the eternal question that every man secretly wants to know "Is it gay if two guys whack it in the same room to porn, no eye contact lol"?????

What surprises me is that no one in Skyrim, or as far as I've seen, Tamriel, has negative views about it. Given how backwards many Tamriel-ites are towards ideas of race and technology, they're unrealistically tolerant of sexuality. It might have made for an interesting quest, but I can't blame Bethesda for not wanting to deal with a potential powder keg.


Well some societies are unrealistically tolerant of sexuality compared to today's standards. Really since christianity homosexuality has been a lot more persecuted than it was prior.

Spartan warriors were encouraged to start homosexual relationships with their comrades. Homosexuality was about as common in ancient Roman society as their olive oil. Then some native American tribes considered homosexuality to be a sacred thing.

Really if there isn't a God condemning it (which there isn't in TES lore) there's really no reason for homosexuality to be persecuted. Aside from the fact that homosexuality is a little counter-intuitive.

I could see the thalmor persecuting for it, but let's be honest; they're the fox news of TES.


Homosexuality in England existed alongside Christianity for, IIRC, about 500-600 years before it was declared sinful. I think there were already parts of the Bible that condemned it, but no one gave a damn about those parts.


the greeks, back in the days of troy and Spartans actually accepted it and made it their life style.... seeing as how the majority of men would be in barracks with hundreds of other men, nobody thought anything of it, kind of like being in jail now. they only mated with females to reproduce and literally were gone by morning, most of the time going in and out from the window

It's probably been mentioned but there IS a male/male couple in the Dragonborn DLC. There's a dead man outside of his house and kind of an unsolved mystery about the house. Something in there drove him mad and then eventually killed him. He wrote a letter to his lover begging him not to come, but his lover came anyway and was killed by bandits who had taken over the house: you can find his body too. The tone of the letter and the first dead man's diary leave no room for doubt about their relationship. *shrugs*

Yes isn't it absolutely shocking that somebody on Gfaqs thought about something and then posted it?

Because not everybody supports, likes, or has to like it probably. "Homophobic" is a dumb smear term. They're not afraid of em, they just don't like em. It's not complicated.

Some people don't like black people. Does that mean there should be no black people in games?

Because Bethesda allowed homosexual marriage SIMPLY so that LGBT communities wouldn't go ape**** on them. They really couldn't give two turds, and I don't blame them.


No, that's not the only reason. Seeing as the LGBT community wouldn't have gone ape**** at all, seeing as it was very nice of Bethesda to even acknowledge that same-sex couples exist, something that most videogames don't do.


You mean apart from the Fable Series, which did it back in 2004 and in every game in the main series (to my knowledge)
