And the point I'm making is that, at nearly any of these conventions, you're likely to have people going "that's gay" or "you're gay" or "that kill was gay," or somehow using homosexuality as a negative. It's pretty much a given in any form of gaming, whether related to the gaming or not.

So people that are tired of hearing that the way they are born is a synonym for someone getting a cheap kill are getting together to avoid.

Sooo, do you think they would mind if we start a explicitly "straight" gamer group? You know, where we sit around and do all the things you mentioned(act like normal straight people that is..) and NOT GIVE A FUCK? Fair is fair, right? I mean, a long time ago people worked to get rid of segregation, but apparently they were all a bunch of fucking idiots because now the very types that actually were oppressed are now drawing the lines around themselves. Yes, I'm talking about more than just gays now...

Can't say or do anything anymore without some suitcase full of issues getting offended about it these days, BUT THAT'S PERFECTLY NORMAL. Nothing to see here folks...that is unless we are insulting one of the currently 'PC' things to insult that is. Then it's open season. Just don't be Christian, Straight, or White, and you can say whatever you want and if anyone makes the terrible error of insulting you, well bad things will ensue.

Enjoy your little party, just don't expect it to advance anything except your own (deluded)rationalizations. Now go ahead and make some stupidly witty remarks to make yourselves feel superior.

Let's also start a White History Month.

Also, it's funny that you're whining about people getting offended over the tiniest thing in a thread in which you're offended by some people having a Gay friendly gaming convention in which everyone is invited.

Who's getting offended, apparently pointing out that starting a "gaymercon" is kinda silly is somehow being offended.

We should start a white history month, it would be fantastic to see folks like Al Sharpton have a massive heart attack over it. Or at least turn it into some form of twisted discrimination.

Here's the thing beamer, no one but the people going to this con really cares one way or the other. And really Rail is pretty spot on, the PC crowd DOES get offended over every little thing real or imagined. It does however imo give that whole "look at me pay attention to me!" Gist that that community does more often than not.

Kinda silly? UnderLord called it wrong. RailWizard called it a fetish, said they should all move to some island and never bother him, and you said they don't deserve their own convention (not sure what makes someone deserve their own convention, paying for it maybe?)

And here's the thing, random internet guy that can't believe someone else enjoys being different from him, the whole "every month is White History Month" argument is valid, and every gaming convention is straight white christian male gaming convention. Seeing unconventional conventions should be applauded.

You just said a guy that demanded all gay people move to their own island was right about something.
Music for the discerning:
