@HeiligYou can't seem to decide what it is exactly that you're arguing. Are all LGBT people defined by their sexuality? It's an implication of your original post, however fast you attempt to backpedal away from it in an effort to discredit my response. (With a healthy dose of "I know you are but what am I" on the side.)If you identify a server as having a high LGBT population, and identify it as filled with people who identify primarily by their sexuality, guess what? You've defined the LGBT community as people primarily defined by their sexuality. You chose to put these things together in a manner-of-fact manner, and the resulting tone paints a grim view of people who are in those categories.There's a line, a distinction to be made here...there are people who are LGBT who define their entire lives by their sexuality, and there are people who are LGBT who do not. Both, however, are LGBT...that fact of their personnas remain. Now, at this point, perhaps then you're suggesting that if they didn't define their lives by their sexuality, they wouldn't flock to a server that has a known concentration of that communityA lot of us try that. To simply play wherever the chips fall, on whatever server strikes our fancy as we roll up a toon for the first time. Then you face months of this in channels both public and private, maybe even in guild, over Ventrilo..."That's f****** gay""What a f****t.""Ugh, f***** queer."And worse. Does it then mean you're defined by your sexuality if you try to find someplace to get away from the same tired tripe you have to deal with IRL?
