DAILY MANIFESTO

Mass Effect 3 Is So Gay, I'm S***ing Rainbows

Posted on Friday, March 2 @ 13:51:38 Eastern by


CVG released a YouTube video of a love scene in Mass Effect 3 between Commander Shepard and a male lover. The video has already been made private, but as Kotaku reports, it was being spammed with 1,320 dislikes to 292 likes.

My reaction as a gay man? Uh huh...

First off, I hear crap like this all the time. And really, they're YouTube comments. YouTube. I'm not sure if all of them are truly homophobes or just pricks with a keyboard. This is the Internet, yes?

At any rate, I'm still befuddled by how much people can get so worked up over something that doesn't impact them at all. The only way a gay sex scene affects you is if you actually clicked on the video, knowing full well that it was called "Shepard Gay Sex Scene". If you're so angry about it, why did you click on it in the first place? No one forced the video down your throat and asked you to take it.

I can go through all the complaints and counter them with logic, but I don't really care, mainly because the people who make those kind of complaints don't care about logic. I've heard all the complaints before: how sex shouldn't be in video games (yet murder should?), how gays spread AIDS (and straight people don't?), how gay sex would kill the human race (as if gays and lesbians wouldn't have sex with each other if we needed to), and how gays aren't natural (yet nearly every mammal species on the planet has had documented gay sex). It's just a broken record vs. broken record at this point.

All this is just Internet rage -- a bunch of dicks voting with their... dicks. If it was "Shepard Lesbian Sex Scene", the replay button would have been, how would they say, raped. And for how much haters talk about gay sex, they should stop acting like annoying girlfriends and do it already. Yappity, yap, yap, yap, yap... My balls can't take it.

Maybe this won't happen in my lifetime, but I can't wait for the day when people see something gay and just move on without giving two shits. I would rather talk about video games, anyway...
