I do NOT think it is the obligation of Blizzard to create a an environment purged of any "disturbing" gender differences. God forbid they actually include any characters that ARE supposed to be gay, or in any way ambiguous. Creating an aseptically straight environment is not doing anyone any favors. The way to learn to deal with something is to be exposed to it, after all. And being being able see non-stereotyped gender behavior and NOT automatically assume it's "gay" might be a useful learning too for a lot of kids (and adults) out there. Giving them to option to learn this is better than withdrawing the option to learn entirely.I think the teenage player base is going to be inclined toward homophobic comments in any ways they can express themselves in the games, and has nothing to do with the characters, which are already all ridiculously exaggerated polar gender opposites. My god, how much more masculine can the male characters get?
