EA defends itself against thousands of anti-gay letters

EA has been inundated in recent weeks with what GamesIndustry International understands to be "several thousand" letters and emails protesting the inclusion of same sex or LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender) content in its video games, most notably Mass Effect 3 and Star Wars: The Old Republic. When asked, EA confirmed that this has indeed been occurring, and unsurprisingly, EA has no plans to censor any of its games.

I find it amusing that while America is trying to paint EA is being this awful company, they stand there group and backup the games they publish.

Wow, was having same sex themes and content in the Mass Effect 3 game that serious in America? Glad EA is holding strong and not censoring any of it games.

It's a sad issue, really. Our culture is getting there, but it's a really slow process over here. Most people assume it's just our religious demographic, but our whole male culture in general tends to promote a subtle (and obviously not-so-subtle, sometimes) form of anti-gay sentiment.

The intelligence of society, or lack thereof, often baffles me.

Mass Effect 3 is a game of choice and rated M. If you don't want to have a same sex relationship in the game, then don't interact with characters of the same sex romantically. It's the same thing heterosexual people do in real life.

I'm constantly amazed by how ignorant, and bitching some people are over something that has absolutely nothing to do with them or doesn't affect them in any way whatsoever. It's non of our [email protected]#$ing business if Jack and John, or Susie and Sally do in the privacy of their home. And as far as Mass Effect goes same sex scenes are extremely easy to miss out on if you don't interact romantically with that person.

Wow, some groups in America are so homophobic.

guitarded772440d ago

Homophobic people are so gay.

people who try to shove gay acceptance down peoples throats are idiots

NewZealander2440d ago

acceptance shouldn't need to be shoved down peoples throats, decent people accept people for there differences, bigots don't, they are the true idiots.

2pacalypsenow2440d ago

well it shouldn't be plastered everywhere and people who dont like gays be insulted . Funny they says people can do what they want and believe and love what they want but when people don't like gays they are idiots? GTFO

vickers5002440d ago (Edited 2440d ago )


You mean how like heterosexuality is plastered everywhere right now, including games? (like 80% of females in video games today have beach ball sized boobies which are constantly being zoomed in on by the camera). That's not a bad thing, in fact I think it's a great thing, but if you honestly think that something like homosexuality is being "plastered everywhere" while heterosexuality is not, then you are an idiot. If you think that hetero stuff is the only kind that should be plastered everywhere, then you are kind of a homophobe. Believe me, I don't want to see that kind of stuff anymore than you do, but it's not our right to say that they can't put that up there.

And seriously, you shouldn't have to have acceptance shoved down your throat, you should just freaking accept them.

I find it hilarious when homophobes try to play the victim. "You aren't being tolerant of my choice to be an intolerant homophobe". Lol, yeah, so your hatred of homosexuals should be allowed to be tolerated, but homosexuals shouldn't be allowed to be tolerated? No, you do not deserve respect or tolerance for hating others.

Oh, and by the way, I'm straight.

That's so true.

antz11042440d ago

^ @ everyone well the important thing is people have choice. If you take that away you become the thing you condemn. That being said they don't necessarily always make the right ones, but thats their right.

Hicken2440d ago

I guess you also don't accept black people or women voting, either. Or any religion other than Judaism, since it's first and actually teaches intolerance in its purest form.

And why are you using the internet? Shouldn't you be using cuneiform? I mean, as old-fashioned as you're thinking, video games should be evil in your eyes.

I dont have nothing Against gay people and actually have two cousins that are gay and i treat them has equals,but been gay/lesbian its Contra Human Nature an thats a fact!

dark-hollow2440d ago

Its up to them and we have no business to tell people about their sexual life, unless its paedophilia, that's sick!

MoFo11112440d ago

Well when its two consenting adults why should anyone care.Paedophilia on the other hand is completely different

cannon88002440d ago

I bet that years from now that may become okay too.

Ahasverus2440d ago

Believe me, they are not like that because they "want it" it's a matter of instincts, and some are dofferent to others.

lashes2ashes2440d ago

Sorry to burst you're bubble. But the whole being gay is against nature is complete crap humans, dolphins and some primates have sex for more than just procreation. Animals and humans have been known to act out homosexual urges since written history. Everything is evolving, it's been a long time since we as a species had sex for procreation only.

FlameBaitGod2440d ago (Edited 2440d ago )

Lashes if its not Contra Human Nature, 2 people from the same sex could have kids. You think the alpha males have sex, have kids and leave to be with someone their own sex LOL!

vickers5002440d ago


Lashes is saying that homosexuality is natural, because it IS within nature. Many animals have been shown to be homosexual.

It's not natural when it comes to procreating, but since it does technically exist within nature, it is natural (unless you have different definition of what you consider to be "natural").
