YouTube Users Are Currently Mostly Hating Mass Effect 3’s Gay Male Sex Scene

You can role-play as a gay man in next week's Mass Effect 3. Why? because the game's creators believe in giving their players a choice of who they want to be. (Mass Effect 3, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

It isn't youtube, but the world. Some parts may accept it more than others, but the resistance is still there.

It is human fear of what is considered to be different from the majority. Those who fail to understand and accept homosexuality (doesn't mean you must participate in homosexual acts or relationships) are ignorant and need to gain knowledge of the matter as a whole.

Getting back on topic. I'm sure it's an optional relationship, and if so then why are people complaining. If you don't want to have your character in a relationship with another male character then don't. It's really that simple. It's a freaking video game, not your everyday life. I hope Bioware makes this an achievement so you can't complete the achievements without it. It's really sad that some of you are that immature.

Nobody plays games for nudity or sexuality but those are undeniable human emotions and interations and to relay an emotion or enhance the story and make it believable sometimes nudity can do just that....as long as you look at it and it is delivered in a mature manner.
AKS  +   881d ago
@Abdou23

Where does it belong? Sexuality is part of the human experience.

Also, are you against violence to be included in video games? Violent acts are deemed felonies punishable by prison sentences and even death in our society. Consensual sexual relationships are a very common, healthy, and normal occurrences. By what rationale should anything related to sexuality be omitted from all video games because you have some sort of hangup about sex? It's also classic projection that you think other people need help if they do not want to see any trace of sexuality in video games purged. You're the one who seems to have a problem with sexuality.

I can see your point Abdou, however I think it could have more of a point allowing gay relationships in games than straight ones, just to provoke, provoke the arguments that ensues. People need to be exposed to an issue which suprisingly still plagues society. The issue of Gay's, Lesbians, Bisexuals, Transexuals and Pansexuals STILL not being allowed the same rights in society. In all this is good, even with all the bad press it's getting, the more this issue is pushed in people's face the more these issue's might be raised among Govts and presidents and rectified, THEY DESERVE THE SAME RIGHTS! /end rant

you could say the same about movies or books or any media. technically the only place sex and nudity belongs or is integral to the plot is porn.

however why does it matter if its in there or not? its not going to hurt your game experience or anybody else's who doesn't "choose" to see it. and for those who want to see shepard bang his crew, males and females, you can do that.

im not into watching digital sex but i still went on a mission to bang every chick in the last one just becuase i could. if i were gay i would try to bang every dude just becuase i could.....

I think the majority of the trolls on there after watching the scene found inner feelings where stirred of a sexual nature and where confused as to why they where aroused by it, so then decided to spout gay hate to hide it and convince themselves they are straight. Just a thought but you never know.
smashcrashbash  +   881d ago
Isn't it amazing how alien organs and human organs always content so well in space fantasy. The alien women and men always have the right organs and parts to have sex with. It's almost like they search the galaxy and purposefully find every race that you can make out with. You never find women or men with anything out of place or multiple sex organs or be incompatible unless they are the enemy or unimportant characters in which case they could be any shapeless, formless , blobs of goo or have a dozen tentacles or a hundred sharp teeth or a mouth in their stomachs.You hardly ever see anything humanoid or human making out with the tentacled, multi mouthed woman or man. Not in Mas Effect, Star Wars, Star Trek or anything.
ZeroChaos  +   881d ago

But seriously, I do agree.
smashcrashbash  +   880d ago
Not sure if you are being sarcastic or sincere but my point was that all these games talk about harmony and relationships with aliens and yet they only seem to stick with the creatures that are humanoid.The enemy or minor characters are the only ones who seems to get away with being extraordinarily different. If it really was such an advanced society in these shows they such evolved beyond the outdated concept of physical bias.

But as soon as anything ever looks radically different in any way the people in the sci-fi make sure that the heroes or main characters keep only friendly relations if any at all.

I am not saying you should be making out with blobs of protoplasm but you never hear anyone say 'he has a very nice tail' or ' I love a woman with multiple eyes'. The people always trust and converse with anything looking human and anything looking radically different is a potential hostile. Even the things that are different have to take on human appearances or be thought as strange to the humans.If you are being sincere then forget everything I just said

Beastiality is never consenstual, it's performed irregardless of the particular species wish or want to participate...in the practice as supposed to the wish for interspecies sex, the animal is an object for sexual desire not a partner who can comprehend the act...if the animal could actively participate in a consentual act of sex with its full undestanding of the context I'd be happy for both to participate. As it stands its an abuse of the animal.

But perhaps my distaste was both missdirected and missunderstood, sex isn't meant to be without consentual agreement, correct? However when it is where do we have to the powers as moral agents to interfere when it is between two who do infact consent?

The difference my contextually confused chum is not that bestiality is 'unatural' but in fact an act of negligence and abuse of the rights of that animal to not be used for an individuals sexual wish...this has to do with an animals frame of reference which doesn't includes an ability to represent its own rights.

Additionally let me suppose your in favor of beastiality or opposed to sexual freedom as the two extemes you'd have to accept, with the claim you make seem support that, along with the reasons you suppose validate sexual freedom and acceptance of such sexual freedoms.

Mr lh_swe, to put things simply, just because you have permission to have sex from someone doesn't make it right. Prostitution being the simple easy answer. I am a firm believer that gay sex, and gay marriage is totally wrong. It's in the game and people can choose to do what they want, it is their choice. BUT it is still unnatural, and wrong in almost any type of religion you may believe in. I always say 2 things to support why it's wrong. 1. If you believe in god as creator, then you know we weren't made that way. 2. If you believe in evolution, why haven't we evolved that way... The human race would be gone if it was right. At least one thing that won't change... Unnatural, wrong, or even if you can somehow agree with homosexual acts, I am glad that these people can't procreate.
lh_swe  +   880d ago
Edward75- 1. I am an Atheist 2. Prostitution has do with human rights, infringements on them to be exact and the detriment it does to the person and society...never said anything different, you assume just because I didn't bring up all my points for why I have strong distaste for anti-gay individuals and still think beastiality is very wrong, I made an argument for that...making up and argument for me on the accounts and idea's I haven't said is not a good way to debate, "just to put it simply". ;)

Another thing I'd like to put simply is we DID evolve that way, soo many species have a plethora of different sexualities, how can you claim we didn't evolve to have homosexuality in our society when we in fact do have a great percentage of gay's?...that makes NO sense. Another thing, what makes it right, moraly right, without a book having to tell it to you? (which obviously means your 'God' must have thought we lacked the moral tools to deal with any issue of right and wrong so he had to write it down in minute detail and then contradict himself on every other page). You know what? That is totally and completely morally objectionable. You assume we have no reason to abstain from wrong act without some divine intervenetion, some holy book to guide you, some God to give you the answer...which would be cheating wouldn't ya think? Wouldn't you rather have innate capability to do right and wrong...how come crime, all crime is commited by a disproportionate amount of religious people? Ohh and more importantly how can you sit there and cherry pick the 'holy books', don't you think thats absurd?

I am tired and hung-over, so rain check on the rest of my rant and our hopefully long debate?
Edward75  +   880d ago
Since you are an atheist, I'll go the non god route. Say you go with the survival of the fittest ( one of the more basic routes of evolution) the gay choice, or gene, (whatever you believe) would always lose. If any species went that direction a species no more would they be. This is not a moral question when you dont believe in god. I'm sure that since man came about in ANY form, homosexual acts have been around. Why aren't homosexual acts able to produce a child to extend the human race? Simply put it is wrong for us naturally. No other way to look at it. The puzzle pieces don't fit. If we came from apes, and apes had been around longer then us, why haven't they evolved into a group of animals that can reproduce with gay acts? This is no way right. This is just 1 of the physical things. I could go on with more, the ability to feed the child, the X and Y Crom that comes from opposite sexes. This is on a basic level. It's so easy to show why this is wrong on a basic biology level. Eventually (if you don't factor god in again) all homosexuals bloodlines would die off. Killing the trait or genetic factors with evolution. To make it simple, and close my rant, We will say "Willie Johnson" loves guys, how can he keep the Johnson family going Naturally? Oh, he can't. Weak link, evolution F*** up, whatever any person can easily see this. REMEMBER - this is without God and the moral situation involved.

Tolerance is a fine line. People use it to support their views like homosexuality or abortion but then refuse to tolerate others. Also where does it stop, at child molesters, murderers, OR JUST WHAT YOU THINK IS MORALLY OKAY??? Thats the point, everybody has a different opinion on whats right, wrong, or permissable. You say people are born gay, molesters say theyre born petafiles, who's right? How can stick up for one and condemn the other?

Idc what society thinks, they also thought killing jews was okay in the 1940's, Obama supports abortion even after the kid is born, should i be tolerant of murdering kids up to 1-2 yrs old? Everyone is entitled to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. You can be gay if you choose but it doesnt make it right or natural and i will never condone it.

I most admit i did skip Brokeback mountain but come on :/. I grew up on Cowboy movies and none them where gay stories :). But that don't mean people should not be allowed there option and hense it was my option not to watch brokeback mountain.

I've no ill will are hate towards anyone because of there sexual peferences. But yet we lve in a world where you just need to go a few clicks threw a few websites and it seems your always out numbered on your view.

Thank god for Real life friend ey for thats where you can get proof there is some sanity in this world. :).

Next headline will be "Due to choices made in Mass Effect 3, man finds out he is a homosexual"

That would make my day lol

I think it would be kinda funny, and cool. But, yea. I doubt it would take a game for someone to realize they are gay or lesbian. Lol

I hate to break the news to some of you but being gay is not a choice as I truly believe its the way god made you. God loves everyone no matter what there orientation is and the bible is clear on that. What is not so clear is the stories the bible chooses to tell as some people were gay and they expierenced gods wrath and some were straight. The vs a lot of christians use to say god says its wrong to lay down with another man also sas in the very same passage that its wrong for a woman to not cover her hair or for her not to accept that thehead of woman is man and the head of man is god. These vrs were used at the time to explain diffrent things and stories going on at that time an in no way to be a judge od what's a sin and what's not. God made gay people and he made straight people as well as blacks and reds and he loves us all the same. The sooner people realize that because something is not the majority doesn mean its wrong the better this world will become.

i guess this gay role play is to cater for the xbox360 crowd.... lol - only joking guys...

Studies show that homophobic males experience greater sexual arousal when witnessing homosexual acts than non-homophobic males. So guys who hate on gays are a little gay themselves and disparage gays as an unhealthy way to deal with their own sexual insecurity.

In a way they're hating part of themselves..

so true man.

Though, I would argue they are still bisexual, which allows them to deny the small attractions to the same sex while trying to focus on the opposite.

@ SageHonor: They measured blood flow to the johnson so it's pretty solid stuff (no pun intended).

@ soundslike: Apparently sexuality exists along a continuum whatever that means?? But I have seen a number of girls that would never eat each other out , make out - for some reason I consider them more strait than bi-sexual but if I saw two dudes make out I'd think they were totally gay.

It must be societal.

I am growing tired of sex scenes and relationships in games....mostly because they serve ZERO purpose. Devs try and claim they add to the story but honestly... I have yet to see a game make a relationship worthwhile. And no, I don't mean get an achievement or trophy for shagging the whole crew. That is just pointless fluff and making the character show emotion can be done better with out the stupid sex scenes. So far any time we get sex in games its to either "shock" us or get the teeny boppers to giggle.

How about you create a system that if the main character can get a relationship with someone it actually gives him an in game bonus to health or other worthwhile perk? Give it an in game mechanic that is to the benefit of the character and then make the player need to maintain the good relationship or else the perk goes away when the relationship deteriorates?

I really just don't need to see an achievement for "romancing everyone" anymore...its tired, juvenile and something that adds nothing to games these days.

I am sure I am in the minority on this but oh well.

+1 bub to you man.

Most people on N4G are teenagers and a lot of gamers like to giggle like little schoogirls at "sideboobs" but not all of us are sideboob-giggling teenagers.

YouTube comments are always like that. I swear it could be a video about puppies and there will be two people arguing about religion. I don't even read the comments anymore.

i love this sex scene. I not gay!
Norad6  +   881d ago
Ok, the REAL question here should be, "Why are these haters watching two men having sex on youtube anyway?!?!"

If they are homophobes, why are they watching it?
FrightfulActions  +   881d ago
Because it's Mass Effect. Believe it or not, fans tend to care for their gaming franchises. So when something shows up saying [Gamename here] Gay, a surprising amount of people will probably click it to defend their game because they think the video in question is some kind of trolling attempt at making their franchise look bad. Why don't they ignore it is another question, but that's how it is. They didn't go "ooo gay, me wants!", well, maybe some of them did, but lets face facts here the majority of people watched it because its Mass Effect 3, only one of the most anticipated games of this year.

The thought process of the majority of people clicking it was probably something like "Mass Effect, sweet... wait, gay? Wtf? This better be some ignorant troll, man, no one calls Shepard gay!"

I haven't read the comments, or clicked the video because I rather ignore and deny its existence in my own little world (Shepard is not gay, Kaiden is dead. Everything and anything even suggested by the video is a falsehood and just trolling to make Shepard look bad). I can definitely see why a lot of gamers could be bothered by this, not because its gay but because they're making what was up-till-now a hetrosexual character suddenly turn gay. Well, okay its still because it's gay but. Different context though.

OPTIONAL TITLE - Mass Effect 3: Special Interest Promoter
I guess we now have another option for the type of sound track that could be played in the background. During this years Democratic election party meetings. At break time, some of the staff will now have the option to play Mass Effect 3 in "another galaxy". Meanwhile, it may help promote and support their social special interests group buddies. LOL
