My reply to the homosexual shooter thread

I couldn't find the old one, so I have started a new one.

The problem with most media is not that it is overtly homophobic (though that does exist.) It is usually a matter of heterosexism; an insidious status quo. It is very important for minority groups to have figures we can relate to. When my partner and I are threatened for holding hands in public, it is painfully clear, just how much we need equal representation; for ourselves, but also to desensitize the straight majority so we may be welcome under the umbrella of 'normal'.

I support you, but unfortunately there is a lot of apparent ignorance on the board. Apple is known as a very gay-friendly co. it's the customers who may not be. I'd rather see a game that had all types of people, inclusive. What is a gay shooter, really.

I hate people like you who try to shove your bias beliefs down my throat. If you want your opinions heard go vote for a pussy (Liberal) in '12, and someone will coddle your naive rants about society.

Im sorry to say it, but you just acted out what you were preaching against.

This thread is going nowhere- reported.
