BTW, for all of the people saying that I'm demanding "special treatment" for LGBT people, or that "treating everyone the same" is what they'd do, I urge you to read the following:http://www.cs.earlham.edu/~hyrax/personal/files/student_res/straightprivilege.htmIt's not about asking for special treatment, or demanding people care about my orientation (whatever that's supposed to mean). I'm just saying that the reality is that no, it's not the same for all of us. I probably know that better than most, given that I've been in both hetero and homosexual relationships, and know first hand how differently the two can be perceived and treated by others. The point of my posts is that even the most tolerant and accepting of people are still raised in a homophobic society where heterosexuality is considered the default setting for humans, and that kind of conditioning colors all of our interactions, even in a video game. Ignoring that won't make it go away. Acknowledging that, then working to change it will.
