My brother used to call me gay when I said I liked Tomb Raider, wish this guy was my bro.

so liking a game that involves a scantily clad, well-endowed female character means you're gay? bahahaha that's rich...

I'll be singing out of the choir, but there's a thing I need to voice.

While the story itself is really nice, I'm a bit weirded out by the tags. She used "LGBT Rights" and "LGBT Youth". That's rather stereotyping in itself.

I rather doubt that the fact that he wanted to play a game with a female character, was neat and clean, and liked purple controllers, means that we (or the writer) can safely assume that he's gay or even a budding one. I like a lot of games with female characters, a wide variety of colors (purple included) and I'm rather clean and neat (and always have been, even when i was a kid), and I'm quite straight.

Don't get me wrong, there'd be nothing wrong if he was really gay, but we simply can't just go out and assume he is from this kind of details. THAT is, in itself, pushing a stereotype.

Again, the story was nice and was worth telling, but it's better to leave the assumptions out.

I might be wrong, but I don't think it's tagged like that because the author was assuming the little boy was gay. I think it's tagged like that because the dad probably assumed his boy would turn gay just because he wants a "girly" controller and a non-violent video game.

One of my best friends' favorite color is purple and he says the same as lord_Sloth, above, and he's not gay, and he actually has a pink controller that he only uses when he plays Call of Duty. He claims the pink color adds further insult to injury when graping noobs online. Otherwise he uses a black one.

Also, there is nothing wrong with female characters. Personally, I use male with most first playthroughs in RPG titles, and female the second, so I can experience the alternate dialogue as to not cause the game to get old. Except in Hunted: Demons Forge, for obvious reasons. Something about killing everything in sight and enjoying the beautifully rendered jiggling whilst doing so, really just felt so right. I did also prefer the bow as to the sword in that game too, so there's another reason.

Lastly, after all that, if somehow I haven't proved you can still be a man while using a bright colored controller and playing females in videogames, then fine, but if you can't even stick up for your younger brother, you are a sad, pathetic, and weak excuse for one. I stick up for my younger bro (16), I'm 24, in more ways than he realizes, whilst of course making sure he stays in line.

By the way, that kids dad is a sad, pathetic, and weak excuse for a man for doing that, and probably is a closet gay. His older brother deserves a reward. Preferably free cake.
