Is it really wise to compare being gay to being gamer? Because you dont get across harder social stigmas than trying to be happy being yourself, and gay :(

I'm not really sure why this got downvoted so much, as it is a valid concern. I had the same thought when I saw the title of this post. That being said, I felt after reading that the comparison was handled fairly, and without belittling the prejudice experienced by members of the LGBTQ community.

Personally I find it pretty offensive for the comparrison. I think the writer belittles the very real and often very dangerous discrimination some people experience due to their sexuality. In some countries it carries a death sentance, and he compares being a gamer to this?Whilst I can maybe understand how someone who has never experienced discrimination can draw such a comparrison, I think he should be more careful in future about making such comments.

Josh explicitly states "we in the gay community...". In other words, his comparison is based on his own experiences within both gay and gaming communities (I personally have friends in both, often overlapping). So keep that in mind before criticizing.
