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.

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.


Only if it's two hot lesbians

I don't think people care that much unless there is actually romantic contact between two characters of the same gender, in which case people tend to react more violently to two men than two women. Why? I'm not really sure, I can only guess.

Men are generally more accepting of lesbians than gay guys, it seems. I think as long as it's not getting crammed down your throat, it's irrelevant. Anything is annoying when it's forced, and I picture something like this being handled with all the tact of Donald Trump. Mass Effect's James Vega is an example of how to have a homosexual character in a proper way.

You know, it's weird. Of the people I know, all of them have nothing wrong with homosexuality, but males would rather see lesbians, and females would rather see homosexual males...
