Gamers pwn anti-LGBT bigotry, w00t!

Gamers pwn anti-LGBT bigotry, w00t! May 22, 2012

A while back various groups dragging the word “family” through the dirt were pissed at Bioware for the inclusion of same-sex relationships in Star Wars: The Old Republic.  They were all calling for a boycott of Bioware for daring to note that same-sex relationships, y’know…happen.  Fortunately, Bioware was able to tell them, pretty much without a hint of concern, to take a hike.

Why?  Because gamers don’t give a shit.

Seven out of ten gamers are comfortable with same-sex relationships in games, according to a new survey of IGN readers.

When asked if the controversial theme of same-sex relationships has a place in games, 69% of respondents to a recent IGN survey said either ‘absolutely’ or ‘why not’ Only 9% said that same-sex relationships should “never” be in games.

You may see me or other gamers use the term “w00t!” in celebration.  The term originated as an acronym during games like counter-strike back in the day.  It stood for, “We Owned the Other Team.”

In the face of a boycott doomed to failure because the gamer community doesn’t share their prejudice, I can’t think of a better thing to say than, “w00t!”  🙂  The concept of family doesn’t include hating others for the non-crime of loving who they please.

Well-played, gamers.  You’re my kind of people.
