Doesnt Matter: FightinCowboy RewTIN Cefoy @Fightincowboy So lately there's been a lot of fuss over gaming "forcing diversity" and people getting upset that a character is gay, trans, etc. and I want to take a moment and try to explain this to folks that are having trouble understanding the issue, as a straight white dude myself. 3:13 AM 10 Feb 19 from Nashville, TN Twitter for Android 48 Retweets 243 Likes FightinCowboy @Fightincowboy 11h As a straight white dude my whole life has been filled with cool white dudes in gaming and comics. Iron Man, He-Man, Spiderman, Cloud, you get the idea. There's literally a million different choices you could pick from and think "oh I want to be like them, I can ANTIN Cooy relate to them". ti 3 92 FightinCowboy @Fightincowboy 11h And now we're seeing more women, more people of color, more people of varying sexual orientations, and dudes are asking "Why does my character have to be gay?", "I like this character but why do I have to play as a black girl? ANTIN CofoBoy 9 1 ti 3 91 FightinCowboy @Fightincowboy 11h And to be honest, y'all been playing as the "straight white dude for so long you're treating that as the default setting in life. But that's not true. The world isn't made of RNTIN CopOBoY nothing but straight white dudes. There's billions of different people out there. 1 ti 6 112 FightinCowboy @Fightincowboy 11h And you'll say well why does my character have to be gay, it doesn't matter to the gameplay" and you're right, it doesn't, so why the fuck do you care? Playing as a gay character doesn't mean cocks start para- dropping into your room to assault you ANTIN cofeo 3 ti 12 129 FightinCowboy @Fightincowboy 11h But to that 13 yr old kid that's gay and still in the closet, he suddenly has a role model. He has someone he can relate to the same way you looked up to Tony Stark or Mario or whoever. That little black girl who was too shy of gaming has a character she sees herself in AANTIN Cojso 9 1 t 10 150 FightinCowboy @Fightincowboy 11h The point is while it might not impact the gameplay AT ALL, it's not hurting you and it's potentially helping someone else. And if you still disagree with that, then the real problem is just that you're an asshole. AeNTIN Cofeso 21 ti 13 242
