Bioware pandering to the LGBT community again

Again a writer of the game wrote this NEW character for this game. That is like saying every time a white person writes about a white character their trying to put some anglo saxon agenda upon us. The fact of the matter is, is if your upset about this it is because it makes you uncomfortable. We are not talking about a character that is well established just going gay for the sake of him going gay. This is why the people who are complaining on here, have yet to bring up a valid point other than. "I Feel oppressed I can't hate gay people anymore" or "Remember when you could go up to people and call them f*g and then beat the crap out of them, mmm good times" yeah its too bad.

Ask yourself this... Is it okay to have sexual relations with you're mother, father, brother, sister, aunt, uncle, grandpa, grandma etc.
Now ask yourself, do you think its right for a son to marry his mother if the dad died or is not around anymore?

Being gay is just as bad as incest is. For me, its as disgusting as incest. The pieces don't fit the puzzle. It also taints the marriage bond, that was specifically there for creating a family. When you allow it, you get young children confused. Where are the incest pride parades at? What is so prideful about being gay when its just as bad as incest?
It sounds harsh but in another few more years the media and culture can start promoting incest, would you be ok with that? I hope I'm getting my point across here. If not, you're a lost cause and I'm not judging, I'm just trying to open some people's closed minds from what culture and media are saying "its normal to be gay." Is it normal to be in an incestral relationship? Hell no.


oh my, lol your one of those guys (or gals) huh? Well let me put it like this, in no way shape or form, does gay marriage or gay people hurt your relationships. Incest, while many agree is disgusting has always been looked upon as a taboo thing and this point it still is today. However, incest can also lead to the increase of a child that is born with handicaps. How in any way shape or form can a homosexual relationship cause this to occur? oh wait! it can't! nice try though. As for children seeing its normal, yeah, lol, well better get used to it cause that rainbow wave is coming and there IS NO TURNING BACK! lol you guys are so silly ;) that one is for you.


well, techincally, incest can lead to handicapped children only if said defective genes are already in the pool, and the more reproduction is comited with people with similar genes, the more the defective genes will become dominat, for lack of diversity..


Did I really just see defense of incest? Why?...


no im not defending incest, i find it disgusting, because it usually means one party excersied power and manipulation, over the other,
i was just clarifying that incest itself does not cause genetic anomalies, rather makes it more likely that one that is recessive becomes dominant.

People are complaining about freedom of speech, but this is an example of how full of crap they are.

You have the freedom to speak, but you bear the responsibility of dealing with the fallout of what you choose to say.

Sorry, but I don't see the problem here. Last I checked the Tevinter Imperium wasn't exactly the nicest place to live...and the're kind of the ass hats of the Dragon Age world...is it so hard to believe that being homosexual would be difficult in such a place? I mean hell...he goes on to basically say that...and such trials are what ultimately shapes our personality. Personally...I'm tired of seeing these topics...its one character...who happens to be gay, and a man. People just need to get over it..stop crying..and stop being so closed minded.

Homosexual male characters get a bad rap...because a majority of the people who play video games are indeed male...and I suppose it shouldn't be shocking that many find it 'icky', but its sad that so many people see this as 'pandering' to the LGBT community....its one gay male companion character...get over it.

I have no problem with it if its all that character has to talk about I'll just ignore him but I personally had no problem with trainor or Cortez in ME3 of course I never went down either romantic plot. If you have an issue with Bioware appealing to the LGBT community maybe u should ignore those characters in game or stop playing Bioware games

This isnt limited to videogames, lesbian porn is more tolerated than male gay porn, and i highly doubt blue is the warmest color would have won at cannes if the leads werent two hot girls.
