I don't see why the gay community is making such a big fuss over it. They've been stereotyped before in almost every media, if they can't accept what they've chosen and deal with the pros and cons perhaps they shouldn't be gay?
Well, two things: one, the gay community doesn't really appreciate stereotypes any more than any other group (although some more laid back gay people can laugh at themselves). Two, you don't just choose
to be gay. You either are or you aren't. Being gay isn't like deciding what to wear in the morning.
Being anything other than straight and white (at least in the US) means being an "other." If you're a straight white guy, you're just that "guy." If you're a gay black man or whatever, you're that "gay black guy." That
is precisely what makes some people uncomfortable with stereotypes.
But, even though I don't agree with the unfairness of some of the stereotypes in this and other games, I still support its right to exist and be published. You can't have the word "nigger" cut out of every copy of Huckleberry Finn
, so why should a video game be treated any other way? It's still a medium of expression.This comment was edited on Jan 25, 19:07.
