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

Yeah, people would wild out. A gay woman would be much more accepted...sadly.

And even a gay woman would have to be presented as the "feminine" type of gay woman that can be had by a man. Not the more "masculine" gay woman that's totally uninterested in men.

Gamefaqs should mod/ban all the homo related topics. This isn't the place to discuss such things.


So we should be afraid to talk about homosexiality?

On-topic:
Lesbians are more acceptable in the gaming world because there are male gamers who drool at the thought of GirlxGirl action.

Compared to gay males...

Because much of the people who play videogames and talk about them (Both requirements) are male, it would seem uncomfortable to think about one of their own "kind" engaging in a "taboo".

In reality, there are many games that have homosexuality, both implied and in-your-face. With that, we all should just not necessarily "embrace", but acknowledge that homosexuality in videogames isn't real, and there's no point in arguing about it.


No but it really doesn't have a place in a video game discussion along with politics and religion. Most of the time it is used to incite people. With that said, I agree with your point 100%.

k but gay ppl exist and shouldn't be a taboo subject, so ppl who don't like it should just get over it. personally i don't care if i make any homophobes mad. you'll never see ppl say like, "discussion of heterosexually should be b&" or something

Gay people should have a seperate video game forum where they can talk about video games made specifically for gay people.

Seems fair to me.

only if its a hot lesbian


But seriously, I couldn't care less about homosexuality in video games, as long as it doesn't feel shoehorned in as either an attempt to look "progressive" or to appeal to drooling teenage boys.

Good examples: Fallout: NV, Dishonored, Borderlands 2
Bad example: Mass Effect 3

Even better, you made a template that we can apply to all annoying groups of people.

Lesbians are way cooler than gay dudes, even the really butch lesbians.


Lol how come?


Because lesbians don't flaunt their lesbianism in everyone's face every 3 seconds, they just go about their every day normal business.


So do gay guys. I'm pretty sure you're just trying to be an ass though.

Lesbians can be hot, so yes!
