Please don't. The biggest issue with LGBT integration is the constant singling out. Sexuality is not a character trait. Sexuality, especially in video games, has little to no actual meaning to the story. So even mentioning it comes off as attention grabbing rather than being progressive. If you want to have LGBT characters in games, great. Advertising it as if it's a big deal is simply exploitation.

I was always under the impression that the greatest goal for LGBT people is to be accepted as equals in the community. How are we gonna do this if you are constantly singling them out as if they're special? News flash, having a sexual orientation or gender does not make you special. It makes you equal to everyone else. Pointing out certain sexualities is helping no one but desperate attention whores. That includes all people and especially the media. You're doing a disservice to everyone.

Sexuality and gender does not matter and as soon as people get that into their thick skulls we can move on with our lives and actually improve society instead of trying to split it at every opportunity.

why don't you believe in efforts for pushing representation of lgbt people?

It's not the effort it's the way people try to do it. You know what would be a great step? Just creating LGBT characters without making headlines beforehand and just let people find out themselves when they consume the media. That will have a much bigger impact because it directly questions the consumers misconceptions about gender and sexuality.

Just have them fuck whatever they want and don't pretend as if it's something special. That's how integration works. We've reached perfect representation when no one even asks what sexuality a person has and rather just sees it and then proceeds to not care.



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.
