ATTN Riot: Give us a character who's lore designates him/her as an LGBTQ

1. tc's post is really whiny and kind of insulting. we're pretty good at being whiny on our own, thank you

2. riot, as a business company, wants to appeal to the majority of their playerbase. this majority is young, straight males. so they will continue to release champs to appeal to that and make them money.

this is not a bad thing in the slightest (more money for riot = more league, yay). and to be honest, gay characters in vidya/most fiction comes across as forced and poorly done, and i can only imagine a gay character who was advertised as such in league would be terribly stereotyped. granted i hate the typical, flamboyant persona but MY POINT REMAINS

who cares, just have fun with the game.

Openly gay champions should never be implemented.

Gays who protest bigotry from one side of their mouth, while spewing intolerant speech against religion are no better than the bigots who hate them.

Not true.

TC, you do realise that by demanding a LGBTQ character you are being an insensitive ******?

You're implying that because someone isn't an average heterosexual, it is something that requires to be brought to special attention. That's not the case. How many characters out of all the champions have some sort of romantic relationship mentioned in the lore? A small fraction.

For all we know, half the champions could play for the other team, it's just not worthy mentioning in the lore, because... why would it? If it's not relevant to the character's reason to be in the league, their origins or relationships with other champions, why should it be mentioned at all?
