"Dear Drama Mamas: There are two members of my guild, both male, who are in a romantic relationship with each other."In my opinion, this is where the Drama Mamas should have stopped reading.The couples sexual orientation, as pointed out by others in this thread, has absolutely no bearing on this question.So why was it even mentioned? I would say because the person asking this question of the Drama Mamas has more of an issue with the romantic relationship itself, and is trying to justify it to themselves by making the issue about loot.Borrowing the workplace analogy someone used earlier:If i went to my boss and started a discussion with "There are two members of my development team, both male, who are in a romantic relationship with each other and...." I would be stopped there and be quite firmly asked to think very carefully about the next words that came out of my mouth.Because no matter what legitimate issue i believe I have, by starting with the above sentence, i have plainly revelaed to my manager that the real issue I have is with the people themselves.Just some food for thought.

I disagree that the guy is a homophobe simply for mentioning that the couple is a gay couple.Outing a hetero couple in a guild is not the same thing. There are ramifications for a gay couple in a mostly hetero guild that simply don't exist for a hetero couple. That is not to say that the guild is full of homophobes. But I guess...the best way to put it is, Morton wanted it to be clear as to WHY outing them as a couple could be so detrimental. If he hadn't mentioned their gender, it wouldn't have been nearly as clear.
