Because bigoted jerks are no longer allowed to express their bigotry towards people based on gender, appearance, or which fairy tails they believe are true but it is still socially acceptable to be a hateful jerk to people based on their sexuality so you see a bunch of hateful jerks being as cruel as possible to people of a different sexuality --- Wall-Mart the place you go when you just got to meat a true moron -Lord of Phendrana Pokemon Black FC = 3396 8733 5419
Because its a subject that is known to rustle jimmies and people use it as a quick 500 topic.
In reality gay people don't even think about gay people as often as the straight people of this board do.
This, and its freaking pokemon, the closest thing you have to a romance is the sort of relationship you have with N in black/white. There is no room for romance in the game so gay/straight or bi do not apply.
Simple as that. Go take your need for acceptance of homosexuality to a game that focuses on realistic mechanics and in game activities like Skyrim or GTA or other open world games. This would be like asking why Tetris doesn't address the problems with racism through their color blocks.
I mean really? What do you want? A rainbow pokemon that say's "Acceptance is the best!" or something? How exactly do you think they should be portraying gay culture in a non-sexual non-romantic sort of way that isn't immediately stereotypical? You want to walk into a pokecenter and find two dudes standing next to each other and when you talk to either they something like "Oh, yes I love you too." and the other one says something kind in return?
I'm sure the people finding the one minor point in the game will have their whole opinions on homosexuality changed that very second. This arguement serves absolutely no purpose. --- If the Giants win I'll close my account. Promise. Super Bowl 2012- Erik P 2/5/2012 at 3:31:41 PM. Account Status, Active.
I think its one thing to want it shown in culture more. But why do people want to see this in pokemon of all things? Like i could see it in a number of places before this. Imagine Catherine if it had a choice route where the guy falls for one of his male friends. --- Jaricko - Official Venustoise of the omniverse / bacon in the fridge for all those who cry out in hunger of the Gamefaq's 3ds boards.
I believe it's an issue currently because a relationship of sorts is going on in the games, beyond the N-level (though honestly that felt pretty crushy at least). So it's not a matter of not having romance at all in Pokemon, at least currently. --- Official Barthandelus and Cosmos of the Dissidia 012 Board.
Because gays are sexy and hang out in Hot Topic. Duh. --- P.S. - I use correct grammar online. Insane, no? http://myanimelist.net/profile/Caidezes | http://www.goodreads.com/Caidezes | http://www.last.fm/user/Caidezes
