#5517544 Stigma with Sexual Orientations and Identities

Posted by Omnitec on 08 September 2014 - 04:55 PM

On the subject of this not being appropriate for a kid's game: I disagree. We involve heterosexual romance in kids media alllllll the time; changing the genders of the people involved doesn't suddenly make it inappropriate for kids.

I still totally think OP's suggestions are unnecessary for Runescape; I just have to disagree with that particular line of reasoning against it.

I think I meant to come across more as it's not appropriate to ask them in game whether they'd like to marry the prince or princess directly for example, not that exposing them to it was inappropriate. Like people shouldn't be forced to give that kind of information to continue a quest whatever their age




#5517517 Stigma with Sexual Orientations and Identities

In the grand scheme of things you just can't ask the question of sexuality in a game which is played by children amongst others. In fact, sexuality doesn't come into it at all, it's a medieval roleplaying game where you kill dragons for loot. 

 

I'm also gay and that has never factored into the way I play, or my view on the game. Yes, my character married the Princess in that quest, but my character has also murdered and pillaged, which is not a reflection on myself. I don't support the idea that the community is homophobic in any way, I've never had an adverse situation when playing or browsing these forums. 

 

It just isn't the place to promote any awareness. Only if it became an issue would it then be relevant, but since it isn't, the game isn't the place to be doing it really.
