The Unquestioned Homophobia In Battlefield 3

Dennis Scimeca: The Operation Metro map in Battlefield 3 is a close-quarters environment, which means players spend a lot of time in close proximity to their teammates. Once I started paying attention I realized that when I was playing as the Americans on the Operation Metro map I was being pummeled with a torrent of "I'm getting f###ed up the ass over here!" and "F###, I'm getting my s##t pushed in here!" from all directions while my team waded through the meat grinder. That's because the problematic dialogue seems tied to the suppression mechanic that blurs visuals and reduces accuracy when enemy bullets are coming close to but not hitting a player.

The story is too old to be commented.

I'm not agreeing w/ the artical (I didn't read it). But, some of the most "manly" things have traces of homosexuality in it.

Ex. Sports and Hip-hop

Mainstream Hip-hop is one of the more homosexual artforms forms out there. From being greased up shirtless, pants down/ass out, bros before hoes/sharing girls, diamonds/jewels, talking about clothing constantly and talking about how fly you are and everyone is a hater. The funny thing is most black males are raised by only women. Plus rap like homosexuality has the "us against the world" gang mentality. But rap comes off as one of the most manly things ever. But in reality is extremely feminine

Watch this on Youtube (I'm on a cell phone so I won't link the m. site)

WHAT? I didn't know people listened to modern rap with it being mostly about "macking b*tches" and "getting paypuh"

I can see how you think that, watch the vid on youtube. "Hip Hop: Beyond Beats & Rhymes - Part 1 of 6"

Seriously, If you're questioning what I said. Please watch it, it might give you a new perspective. Its a great documentary, that gives some great insight to a lot of different angles that don't get talked about involving hip-hop.

@Maria

You got some good points LoL (not saying there correct)

Music in general has got much more camp
Rihanna,Gaga, Niki Minaj,Drake ect.....

Hip Hop use to be really Homophobic but rappers nowdays rarley have any opinions.

Thats like saying Cage fighters must be gay because they like holding people down while wearing underwear or people who join the army because there surrounded by other guys for months.

Where does it stop??? you can make anything sound gay?

ShaunCameron2099d ago

Actually, homoerotic would be the right term to describe hip hop and sports.

Most people in general don't really like homosexuals just like most people don't really like people of other races. It's just that they not gonna say it openly out of fear of being publicly written off as a bigot.

You're thinking too hard, and yet not thinking enough. That's really the simplest way to put it.

It's the military. Such terminology- especially during a firefight- isn't uncommon. I could get all deep into it, but I'll just leave it at that. (All deep into it, get it? Yeah, it's just that easy to make something sound "gay.")

And like wallis said above, saying "I'm f*cked" or any such variation doesn't imply any sort of inherent homosexuality or homophobia.

Neither does the word "gay," incidentally. Its meaning was originally "happy," and has only recently- in the word's history, anyway- come to be used as a term to describe a homosexual individual. So this campaign to stop people from saying "That's gay" and giving it a negative connotation is hypocritical, in some ways. And while I have nothing against gays in any way- and will actually go out of my way to defend or otherwise side with one in trouble, because I know things aren't exactly even for them- I do think that people are a little oversensitive to things.

Example: as a black person, most people would understand if I got offended by the use of the word nigger as a derogatory term. At best, however, I pity the person using it. Additionally, unlike most, I know the etymology of the word, can break down its evolution, and educate the ignorant on what it really is. But, more than that, I'm not gonna let myself be offended by someone else's stupidity. That's just not worth being stressed out over.

So if you want to be offended when someone says "gay" and means it's bad, that's your choice. If you want to be offended when someone says "I'm getting f*cked up the *ss over here!" then that's on you.

But it's as immature to call it blatantly offensive- with no regard for context- as it is to BE blatantly offensive, and I'm pretty certain the latter is not taking place here.

Funny how the people with some kind of intellect have few bubbles. +1 for you.
