This is to replace Tazimir’s late thread. (RIP, there was good discussion going on there)
As roleplayers it is within our right to criticize the game’s story and the galling lack of representation in it, especially considering:
-all the LGBT pride merch blizzard has sold us
-all the interviews they gave where they talked about how important inclusivity is, how proud they are to write characters of many different backgrounds
-the prominent role that heterosexual romance has played in several major questlines and story arcs within their games.
EDIT: also, feel free to discuss certain motivations blizzard may have for censoring what few gay characters they do have in China, and just China’s influence on blizzard in general. I believe that is highly relevant to the topic.
EDIT2: here are some important points that came up in the last thread, that the very well-spoken Karmas put together in a great list for us!
