I didn't invent the term 'sexual preference', but it obviously applies equally to a person who prefers a partner of the same sex, so get over it.
My point is that GLBT are perfectly welcome at any existing gamer con's to make themselves separate is unnecessary and smacks of 'look at me, I'm different'.
Newsflash, we're ALL different.
Fwiw, I was engaged to a bi female for months and have gays in my immediate family and gay friends and care for them all as much as the straight ones.

I agree with you on this. You're right and this con is completely unnecessary. But I suppose those who are replying to you are entitled to their own opinion as well...

You can't understand what it means to be an openly gay person anymore than you can understand what it is to be black. Saying you think that they don't face any obstacles may be an opinion but it's a patently absurd one. I'm of the opinion the moon is made of cheese. That doesn't make me right, but that's my opinion!
"Why does a woman want a job? Her place is in the kitchen. I don't understand. You're happy in the kitchen aren't you dear? Of course you are."

Some people just don't get it Cutter.
