I'm not be sexist or discriminatory, but I'd like to know how gamers would feel if a lesbian was in a game as opposed to a gay male.

Mass Effect is a good indicator, I'd say.

FemShep + Liara = no problem, it's "hot".
Inclusion of (optional) homosexual ManShep = outrageous, and fuelled weeks of tantrums and bigotry.

As much a I'd liketo say no, probably yes.

Oh sure the media would be all over it, but most gamers are male, and a good chunk of them is only homophobic when males are involved.

This applies to everything outside of gaming. Even tv commercials use "lesbian" references in order to maximize viewer interest from the male consumer base. It's just a sales tactic because sex sells.

Are you talking about real lesbians, or lesbians guys talk about in general which are actually pornstars that will do anything for money while commonly not actually living a lesbian lifestyle?

I find television very educating. Every time somebody turns on the set, I go into the other room and read a book.
