The Winds of Change

Buddy Acker reveals a secret side of himself and talks about how he wants videogames, and the world, to reflect change, and catch up with the times: "I’m not usually the type of guy who likes to share personal details about himself with anyone, but I’ve already talked a little bit about my depression, so I’m just going to say this and deal with the repercussions: I’m bisexual. I’m attracted to both men and women. It scares the hell out of me to finally admit that in a public forum because I’ve seen what others have had to deal with. I’ve seen the hatred directed at homosexuals and transgender people on the internet. I’ve heard people tell my brother, a homosexual, that he’s “going to hell” or he’s “disgusting.”" (Culture)

I agree. It takes grit to reveal this to the world. Game culture needs to evolve to keep up with the times.

That's definitely true, but there's a larger cultural issue as well.
