Despite being the first Nintendo game to allow same-sex marriage, one sub-plot in 3DS role playing game Fire Emblem Fates is pretty homophobic. It includes a character who defines her attraction to women as a "weakness" and who is essentially drugged by another character to trick her mind into being heterosexual.
Wow talk about skewing the perception of the actual text. She wasn't even drugged if you actually read the text. How they came to that conclusion is beyond me.
Is this portrayed as a good or bad thing though? If the former then it's a problem.
Does the game portray this lesbian character's belief (that her attraction to women is a weakness), as a kind of delusion on her part, or does it support her in her belief? If the game suggests or implies that she is misguided and deluded for having such a belief, it's not really a problem.
And if the drugging is portrayed as an extension of this delusion and as a example of being really misguided, it's also not a problem.
It all depends on how it's framed and what attitude to her beliefs and behavior the game seems to have.
as much as people love too get their pitch forks an look for things too riot about this is a line they quoted from the game
Kamui: Uh. Since the day you saw me as a girl? You couldn't possibly mean... that you fell in love with the female me!?
Kamui: Oh God...
Soleil: But it's okay. Right now, I also love the male Kamui. I mean, when I drank that magic powder, I saw countless people as women... but the only one to make my heart throb was you, Kamui. Even now... my heart is beating fast. ... Hey, want to try touching my chest?
so they don't hate gays they even tell a interesting story with this character versus just a one dimensional i like boys/girls an end it their.
you don't have too agree with the story or like how it ends but in a world were we all want acknowledgement an power, you need too learn compromise an that you're not a unique snowflake.
