    The complaints on which this is based are something I'd like to see. Right now, there is zero gayness in The Old Republic. The next big patch will allow new race/class combos, but doesn't touch gayness.

    I guess maybe you could use the legacy system family tree thing to mark two male characters as spouses or something.

    I briefly misunderstood "eyefuck" as "skullfuck", which I didn't remember. Then again, I haven't seen many of the remastered versions or whatever, and I know a lot of people were up in arms! Maybe "Luke skullfucks his sister" was one of those "Han shot first" things.

    An important point to keep in mind is that the Krakthorian Gay-Beast is already at least twice as gay as Earth homosexuals. And of course its already well documented how subversive those Mandalorians can be too.

    So now I've got a image in my head of Obi Wan going up to a pair of stormtroopers, waving his hand and going 'You like dudes'. Then the stormtroopers skip off into the sunset holding hands leaving whatever they were watching unguarded.

    Haha.



    As a gay myself, I'm glad that the Florida Family Council formulated the character Darth Rupaula with absolutely no provocation from LucasArts or Bioware.

    And when Rupaula of the Sith is realized, she should be voiced and played by Sharron Needles, who's already the drageleganza queen of all things dark and creepy.

    Favorite bit from the news post:
    I can’t truck with this kind of ignorance. I just want to grab them, and shake them, and say to them The Old Republic takes place thousands of years before the birth of Anakin Skywalker, the ill-starred boy who will one day become Darth Vader. The homophobia is also bad.

    i tried to read Florida Family Council's article on this but I can't really actually like

    see what they are basing their chicken-littling on per se

    it reminds me of that person at Fox News who was like MASS EFFECT IS AN ALIEN PORN SIMULATOR and had based that on something they heard from a guy who heard it from a guy

    who is telling Florida Family Council these things

    I wonder if that "Mass Effect is porn" woman's amazon page ever recovered from that bit of idiocy.

    To be honest I am assuming that every single live server probably has a Darth Rupaula leveling on it now.

    oh, reading over the article again

    it appears they're getting hysterical not over anything BioWare is actually doing

    but what LGBT activists are asking them to do?

    is that how starved Florida Family Council is for news, they need to start fearmongering on things that LGBT activists are asking other people to do, regardless of whether or not they've done them?

    That was my favorite bit until I saw the subsequent post, which reads in its entirety:

    lol, reading the article this is based on, they're getting upset that LGBT people want gay character options in SWTOR.

    Because:
    Children and teens, who never thought anyway but heterosexual, are now given a choice to be lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender in their game player.
    Children and teens, who choose non-social agenda characters, would be forced to deal with lesbian, gay, bi-sexual or transgender characters chosen by other players.

    How DARE anyone expose "children" to anything but heterosexual thoughts! (the game is rated T for teen anyway, so why "children" are playing it I don't know.)

    and also because homosexuality is CLEARLY a social agenda!!

    PA picked an excellent strip topic, haha.

    So your kids playing a game which rewards and encourages violent, cruel, and generally anti-social behavior with some kind of "Dark side Points" is cool, but playing that game with those crafty gays is going to poison their world view.

    As an imminent parent, I am greatful when people choose to share these little insights with me.

    I mean TOR is a game that, in one class storyline, gives you a slave girl that you can torment at your leisure yet eventually marry and have sex with

    but that's cool, i guess

    because that's hetero

    Seriously. No spoilers here, but do you know how much cold blooded murder I have committed in this game? Not oh yeah kill 20 Republic Scouts and harvest their rare Scout Spleens. I'm talking straight up deciding to stab someone with raw energy because I felt it would be slightly easier than thanking him.

    Or how about when I tortured a constrained prisoner of war with electricity. Not to get information. Nope. To make him sing me a song before I executed him.


    I'm all for Bioware doing their thing and putting in the options. Hell, I was the gayest dwarf you have ever seen in Dragon Age.

    Maybe if "children" had more exposure to those of different races, creeds, and sexuality, they wouldn't grow up to be intolerant fuckwits. Maybe then, the kids that confided in me when I was a teacher wouldn't have been scared to death of what would happen if people found out they were gay.

    Before I get even more irate, on to a new topic.

    But why romance him when you can have it so he has to bang Morrigan?

    More games need to have you able to get two people who hate each other to knock boots.

    I played as a female char, but I have to say one of the bigger reasons why I didn't replay as a male char was that I couldn't flirt with Alistair, the whole process was adorable and he was way cute.

    Mass Effect is not porn. I can't be sure they are even legally allowed to say sex is implied.
