>>It’s a whole new land of adventure for perverts to hunt in.
MMORPGs have been the top PC games for about 10 years. SWTOR is just the latest in a long line of them. Although this is the first to allow homosexual relationships with a player character’s NPC companion, it is also the first to have NPC companions. Romancing your companion is just a series of flirts, climaxing (pun intended) in the screen going black for about a second and then returning the player to right were he was before the encounter. It is rated PG at most.
Remember that you play a character who kills tens of thousands of people and creatures over the course of your career(and in the SW setting, most kills are humanoid), so getting upset over the potential for homosexual encounters between a player and a non-player character needs some perspective. If you choose to play a “Dark Side” character, you commit cold-blooded murder quite often (which, interestingly, upsets your companion in most cases preventing you from romancing him/her).
Finally, a voice of reason. I thought I was alone, here. If this site is so full of whackos, I am in the wrong place. Pure insanity. Anyway, yeah, my Sith Warrior just hit max level, and I can safely say that this character has killed many thousands of "people", some of them in cold blood, i.e. outright murder. My companion character is a totally insane Sith Inquisitor that relishes cold blooded killing. Funny how no one gets upset about that.
Careful...if you kill too many "LGBT" characters in the game, you might be guilty of a bias crime!
So what? Seeing cartoonish violence doesn't harm or influence children or cause them to be violent. But exposure to sexuality does influence their thought processes and future behavior.
We all have to know about violence and learn how to use violence to defend ourselves from aggressors. It’s part of a healthy society. But learning homosexuality is counterproductive to a healthy society.
