Bioware pandering to the LGBT community again

There's a world of difference between a gay character and a character who is gay.

THE ****??

It's not like they're pandering or targeting the game. It's just a designer who was happy he got to make a real homosexual character as he's gay himself and feels like he's helping make progress.


That's exactly what it's like. Affirmative action and being progressive, are not the same thing. The fact that this is even a story used to lure in the LGBT crowd just ruins the integrity of the game. It would have been much more classy if they just included a gay character and didn't make a deal about it in much the same way that they make hetero characters and don't make a deal about it. Isn't that what equality is supposed to be in the first place? How are homosexuals going to be treated the same as heteros when every time they appear on screen we're supposed to get excited like Bioware just saved a life? It's ridiculous.

Not surprised that people are flipping out over the reveal of a character being gay.

And no, just because you think "I'm not flipping out because he's gay, I'm flipping out because they're pushing it down our throats!" doesn't make you any better. We know next to nothing about how the character will play out and how the story will handle it, whether it's just simply a facet that adds to him or something that plays an important part in the game, and yet people wanna freak out saying it's wrong for them to announce it. Jesus Christ.

Did you miss the part where the guy being interviewed, the writer who created the character, is gay himself? He describes it as being a 'personal experience'. That's not pandering.

And yet, that's the first thing they push.

And lol at the idea that being gay will actually be important in the game. That's just stupid.

Not pandering doesn't make it good writing.
