What some of you who are cisgendered and heterosexual fail to realize is that *you* are allowed to exhibit your own sexuality in a great many ways during your day, and nobody every gives you any grief over it. We're not talking about overt sexual behavior here, but rather little things like commenting upon an attractive member of the opposite sex, mentioning something about your spouse or describing a date you went on to a friend. You also get to go through your day with almost no chance of hearing your orientation used as an insult. Well, in this spat with Blizzard, that is all we want too. Of COURSE any sort of overt sexual language is inappropriate in the game - no matter WHAT the orientation or gender of the speaker is! But we're all people with lives and feelings, and your "harmless" little attempts to dehumanize us by not letting us speak about ourselves equally is EXACTLY the sort of thing that makes some sickos feel justified in attacking us with hatchets and guns!
