Would a lesbian be more acceptable in today's gaming society than a gay male?

Haven't lesbians *always* been more acceptable in pretty much every society than gay males?

Guys consider lesbians to be "hot." Their sexuality and personal identity is unimportant - the only thing that matters is that they're a sexual novelty to men. Whereas gay males are a "threat." Because surely there's nothing a gay male could want more than the bigoted, repressed jerkbag who's constantly undermining them as a citizen and human being. Who wouldn't be attracted to that?

Also, notice how lesbians get treated when they're not "hot" or "lipstick lesbians." Suddenly it's "gross" and "wrong" again - because what purpose could they have if not for you to watch them making out?

Homophobia is the fear that a guy will treat you the way you treat women.

Real or fake lesbians? Because I do not want to see the butch reality.

It depends on the people. Realistically, a lesbian woman is less likely to be "unaccepted" than a gay dude. A manly gay guy is more likely acceptable than a girly gay guy. A manly lesbian is less likely be accepted compared to a girly lesbian.

I have to say yes, because many men have a fetish for homosexual women, even though they're romantically/sexually unavailable to men. Men can only have lesbians as friends.

I mean, I'm straight and I don't have a fetish for lesbians. To me, they're just couples, no different from straight or gay ones.

But anyway, I don't care if I have a homosexual character in a video game, male or female.

we talking hot lesbians? or the butch kind? either way yes


wow....

you've never seen "real" lesbians before have you?

here's a hint, all the porn you've ever watched has been lying to you.


No.

There are plenty of hot lesbians, they just aren't nearly as common as the manly butch lezbos. For example, Amber Heard is a lesbian and has a hot girlfriend.

What about the homophobes that are deeply closeted gay men?

I'd say yes. For some reason people love girl on girl so it's a selling point. For others gay is more of a turn off.

The ME and Dragon Age franchise have both of these but it's by choice whether to pursue it or not. As in optional.
