Sya, a transgender character, will be one of the many things added in the new patch
A good inclusive step!
For sure, good to see people paying attention to these types of things
I'm sure Anita and friends have some way they could spin this entirely positive step into a whirlwind of negative attention though! We're seeing this more and more and I don't know if it's just a 'flavor of the month' type thing but I like it. More inclusion, more diversity!
Well with same-sex relationships in a lot of games now, I guess this is a natural step
Always great to see more diversity!
Hopefully they are doing this for the right reasons and not just for attention.
Can we have a trans-racial character next
You want Michael Jackson in the game?
No, Rachel Dolezal.
Sweet. More inclusion in games means more gamers. Everyone wins.
They are trying real hard to shoehorn this stuff in our faces all of the time.
Oh it must really hurt your sensibilities when they add in the real world of people who are transgender. What next, are they going to add people who can speak like in the real world too?
I want more people in wheelchairs, amputees, dwarfs, hermaphrodites and so on
Better to be shoehorned than to be horseshoed. I want you to marinate on that.
And so, for when the ignorant fool comments that the world is "shoehorning" this stuff on him, he ironically succumbs to the world that he himself condemned. He becomes the hate within him, and grows apart from humanity.
Well I'm happy about this.
I... don't undertand. Transgenders don't identify as one gender attempting to be another... they just identify as the gender they view themselves as right? So what transgender is going to ... say... be a guy who is now a girl? They'd just be a girl, right?
"While people self-identify as transgender, the transgender identity umbrella includes sometimes-overlapping categories. These include transsexual; transvestite or cross-dresser; genderqueer; androgyne; and bigender." It's not really that black and white. These people distinguish between sex and gender. Sex is physical, determined by the sexual organs, gender is psychological, the way they see themselves. Many also find it hard to identify with one gender. They move between male and female and combine the aspects of both they like.
I don't get this either. Also, why does this matter in a video game? Can we have sex in GW2 now? As far as I'm concerned they're all barbie dolls. No genders whatsoever.
Yay for inclusion.
Seems people do this just for more attention.
We used to joke about devs adding transgender to games... It's actually happening now. This is getting ridiculous. First homosexuals had to be shoehorned in games. Just to be politically correct. Now its transgenders? What's next Transracial?
Can you give an example of a game where Homosexuals are shoehorned in?
