    First of all, why would a character use gay logic to defeat demons? The battles are formatted so that you're either defeating your oppressors by winning them over or defeating them by pummeling them with your arguments. So to "win" the game you have to be a proponent in allowing the gay character to be gay. To lose the game, you have to succumb to the forces that don't want him/her to be gay. I don't see how that isn't pro-LGBTQ. I wouldn't think so if I just got to hit them with the axe. I mean the fact that you don't even get to use the axe is pretty suggestive. Why wouldn't an adventurer use an axe to kill a demon? Why debating?

    Also, the demons aren't just arbitrary evil things. They represent people whose attacks consist of clear anti-gay sentiments. And you're fighting against them. I mean that alone is like a blatant metaphor. See, that's the difference between having a game about a gay guy and having a game with pro-LGBTQ undertones. If it was just a game about a gay guy...why wouldn't s/he be fighting Orcs and Goblins like the straight adventurers in every other RPG? Why is s/he fighting //enemies// -- and the player is made to interpret these things as enemies -- which represent anti-gay sentiments? If you take Donkey Kong Country and just say "well Donkey Kong is actually gay", it's just a game about a gay monkey. If you take Donkey Kong and say "well, Donkey Kong is a gay monkey and King K'Rool is an evil crocodile that exists only to oppress his sexuality and must be defeated", it's a pro-LGBTQ game.


    And yeah, jubeh, it might not go along with what they were doing...but it is what the game implies.

    Today is national coming out day (if you hadnt been informed allready or you were wondering about the plethera of gay content on tv today) so lets talk and celebrate!

    National Coming Out Day is a time to publicly display gay pride. Many choose this day to come out to their parents, friends, co-workers and themselves.

    If i may i suggest that you watch "Our america with lisa ling: Pray the gay away?". She is fallowing the lives of a few people that are going thru the process (or have gone thru) to become straight and or trying to balance being gay and religious (which I personally think is a bit of a contradiction but thats just me). if i can find a youtube video of it i will post it.

    How is being gay and religious an oxymoron? That's like saying being black and religious is an oxymoron.

    Because without exception every single major religion in the Western world preaches that homosexuality is a sin? Because the Bible, a book that is the foundation of most Western religion, claims that homosexuality is a criminal offense and an abomination before God and that the correct punishment for it is death? Because religious groups are at the forefront of the anti-gay movements of the world and outside of religion it is pretty much literally impossible to try and offer a reasonable (in the sense of having reasons) reason to oppose gay marriage and other aspects of gay rights?

    I heard an argument that the only anti-gay sentiment in the Bible is the story of Sodom and Ghomorra, and even that is not competely clear-cut. True or fallacy?

    That is complete and utter bullshit.

    EDIT: That homosexuality is absolutely awful is one of the few things upon which the Bible is consistent. Amusingly, the other thing the Bible was pretty consistent on is that Jesus was a communist. But that's neither here nor there.
