Going out of your way to self-label and segregate seems to be attention whoring and just invites the problems one would ostensibly assume they'd like to avoid.

It's not really about segregation. There are thousands of conventions every year, most of them geared towards a certain crowd. They have shared concerns and interests, so it makes sense. I don't see why an event for LGBT people should be any different.

Telling a minority group to shut up and stop getting noticed so things will be easier on them probably isn't the right attitude to have.

As to the 14 year olds, those aren't the homophobes we need to worry about. They use those terms primarily as an insult towards anyone and everyone because they are shit-head children with no social graces. Most don't really have any animosity towards gays. The younger generations are considerably more LGBT friendly than the older ones, despite their lack of manners.

If you don't like where gaming is heading, stop giving your money to the people who are taking it in that direction.
