Microsoft Corp. and Xbox Live are apologizing to a West Virginia town and a 26-year-old gamer accused of violating the online gaming service's code of conduct by declaring he's from Fort Gay.
"Microsoft Corp. and Xbox Live are apologizing to a West Virginia town and a 26-year-old gamer accused of violating the online gaming service's code of conduct by declaring he's from Fort Gay" well i admit that was a little funny
First off all, the word gay means happy long before it meant being a homo..
Indeed. ♫ When you're with the Flintstones you'll have a yabba dabba doo time. A dabba doo time. You'll have a gay old time. ♫
"fort gay" in French means totally/100% gay. Just putting it out there.
(Edit: Sorry wrong place)
jus asking cause psn isnt... if your a gamer dont matter to us your preferences heck ask my good friend supergayparade (real psn n sry dudes not really gay but if he was he'd stil kick your ass @ warhawk)
and what if your last names is Gay... or your name, Tugay? lol
I know a girl by the name of Chrisina Gay. Also a kid with the name Sean Boughner (Pronounced Boner). My personal favorite was a girl named Marry Handcock and when you switch the first letters it's Harry Mancock
The most unfortunate name I know is Gaylord......remember Meet The Fockers.....Gaylord Focker..that name still makes me laugh when I remember it.
There was a girl at my school called Nicola Allcock. Good times!
Rofl 8-bit, bubbles to you. *raises beer*
I had to deal with a guy once at work called Mr Yuren (urine)
There's a voice actor in the Star Ocean: First Departure for the PSP named Dick Smallberries Jr.
I used to work with a guy call Les Bowes :)
I hope no one forgot Char Aznables alter ego Quattro Vajna.......
Kuntz seriously poor thing got picked on mercilessly in school. on the positive side it turned her into a real freak XD
ahahhahahahahah thats brilliant XD
The town should be suspended, not the gamer.
People are stupid once again.
i never heard of an entire division bein homophobic before. If i was this guy, i wanna know what M$ was gonna do to compensate me for the down time, bc of their f* up. id try to get as much free stuff as i could.
Uh...they aren't homophobic. They simply don't allow words that can be upsetting or offensive to others, and gay happens to be one of them... This is a gaming network, not a sexuality convention, so no need to bring up your views on it in your profile. But yeah, keep bashing MS. Omg they sux!!!! Homophobes!!!!111
They should give him free 2yr of Xbox Live. Very funny article. Wondering who even name a Military Base
there really is a Ft. Gay and he is just expressing where he really is currently located. I just googled it. It is the name of a real town. Wow...
Founder: Haywood Jablowmee mayor: Howie Gerkov secretary: Peter Dragon treasurer: Kraven Morehead
This is a REAL place , and town. i can just imagine what M$ would do if a person lived here . "Blue Ball a small town near the towns of Intercourse,and Hershey Pennsylvania (PA)." while your there make sure you stay at the Blue Ball Bed and Breakfast 1075 Main Street, - Blue Ball, PA 17506 and watch the Amish farmers plant and harvest their crops. http://www.blueballbandb.co...
So immature for many of this sites contributers and supporters to be in the comments section of this story trying to make a joke out of a real place with many productive and hard working residents. What makes it even worse is a big chuck of N4G's users are from there, I won't name names though(you know who you are).
"Makes me feel like they were discriminating..." Give me a break, you idiot...MS could care less if you're gay or lesbo or whatever, they simply police certain words so that nobody is offended on Live, since people will make a big stink about anything these days. Most commenters on this page need to step away from MS bashing for a second a realize this. Blame yourselves. If people didn't get offended at religious and sexual terms, then companies like MS and Sony wouldn't block them.
yeah corporate homophobia is fine because nobody likes the word gay right? it'd be different if they banned people because they were homophobes/racists or just fanboy idiots, maybe then it would bother you.
Once again, how is it homophobia? They don't care if you're gay or straight, they just don't want the use of the word "gay" because it's offensive to some. How hard is it to understand?
i would say this is shocking, but honestly, it's to be expected from ms, corporate homophobia FTL.
This is exactly why I will never join any online gaming 'service' - people just take things way too serious and all this politically correct bullshit has gotten way out of hand. I just want to load my game, jump in a dedicated server and play my shit without some dumbass trying to 'babysit' everyone with their banhammers if you say a word wrong or use a handle someone finds offensive. *shudder* Private Dedicated Servers for the win!
