Electronic Arts isn’t bowing to pressure regarding homosexual relationships in its video games.
Celebrities such as Aisha Tyler, Stephen Fry, and Neil Gaiman have also come out in favor of EA’s stance, which AllOut Executive Director Andre Banks says “makes a real difference” for its “positive portrayals of gays and lesbians.”
Such options are not yet available in Star Wars: The Old Republic, but that hasn’t stopped some from still — wrongly — condemning the game. According to an article posted on GamesIndustry.biz last week:
The Family Research Council, led by Tony Perkins, is also involved. “In a new Star Wars game, the biggest threat to the empire may be homosexual activists!” said Perkins.
Must be the pink lightsabers.
