Krakthorian Gay-Best...HAHAHAHA!    Yeah, in a universe where a boy kisses his twin sister and doesn't realize she's his sister until the 3rd movie...leaving a whole lot of time to wonder what went on before she got with Han...that's soooo much better than having gay people there!  Personally, I always thought Jar Jar was based off of Barney Frank.  You're all clear kid, now let's blow this thing and go home.

 It's pretty funny how upset scifi fanboys get at the suggestion that their favorite series/movie might be inclusive to people of different sexual orientation. Yeah, Star Trek has no gay characters because of the Star Fleet death camps. KOTR did have a gay character, as referenced in the previous article.

Silly Penny Arcade, always putting a comedic look at gaming's stupid moves.

This reminds me of Hillary Duff's stupid commercial about saying the word gay.

In the end all I have to say is, EA owns BioWare, so I could care less.

Conster-annnd they are 'temporarily closed' after phone threats. Way to take the moral high ground against bigotry, people. -,-04/01/2015 - 5:51pm
ConsterThe first business to use SB101 to deny service to gay weddings has arisen - let's see if EZK's theory about the free market being sufficient to deal with them holds u-04/01/2015 - 5:50pm
MonteYa i remember when she first started her videos with the comment sections open. There was A LOT of vile harrassment to shift through to get to any REAL debate. Youtube is a TERRIBLE debate forum. Can't blame her for not wanting to deal with harrasment.04/01/2015 - 5:49pm

Matthew Wilson@IanC I may not like her work, but I recagnize that people were harassing her in the comets, so no I do not blame her for clossing them.04/01/2015 - 4:49pm
IanCAnitia Skeeter won't allow comments because she doesn't like debate.04/01/2015 - 4:46pm
Sora-ChanTestTube did a video on the Trans-Pascific Partnership https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7W4Zc55pCtY04/01/2015 - 4:06pm
ZippyDSMleepicking up The Feminist Wire , Mary Sue and Feminist frequency , a shame FF had to close down comments, I tend to drop anyhting that dose not allow comments these days but as seeing how much spam and trolling they get I will it slide.04/01/2015 - 4:03pm
ZippyDSMleeOkay now that I can understand, I was focusing on total outcome not just reinforcement.So its about reinforcement of poor feelings/behavior than anything else..now I get it....uhg forest for the trees.....04/01/2015 - 3:51pm
Andrew EisenBut again, to be clear, that does not mean consuming violent media will make you violent.04/01/2015 - 3:46pm
Andrew EisenZippy - Not totally sure what you're getting at but it's the same idea that when our fiction is full of stories where violence is the solution to everything, it helps reinforce the idea that violence is the answer in real life.04/01/2015 - 3:46pm
Andrew EisenAlso, just in case anyone wasn't clear on this, Sarkeesian's argument in her latest video is that we "need more women-centric stories of all kinds." That's it.04/01/2015 - 3:44pm
ZippyDSMleeAndrew Eisen Okay so would that be like violence something that has a loose tie to the real world, or would that be an oversimplification?04/01/2015 - 3:43pm
