commanderbishoujo:

this is always the hill white man fantasy wants to die on tho tbh

"realism" to them is not about things like having nature calling or butts sore from being in the saddle all day. sometimes not even about military logistics or political systems that make sense and definitely not technological innovation (how many of these low magic settings that pride themselves on "realism" have a world stuck on dark ages tech for thousands of years with no explanation)

it’s always about keeping minorities out and including isms against those tokens who are there

"realism" to them is actually about upholding a kyriarchal portrait of the world that ironically only exists in their own fantasies

zerothreat:

the issue with making an all-bi cast a mix of gay/bi/straight has a few prongs to it, none of them being that gay characters are included which is imo a great thing and what I was rooting for b4 this news

  • there is no need to introduce straight characters just bc you introduced gay ones. there is nothing to balance out, this is not a zero sum game, there is nothing to gain by limiting romance options further just bc gays got to & it’s spiteful
  • both gay and bi/pan/poly players who play same-gender romances now actually have fewer options and less representation bc one section of the romance pool is exclusive and unavailable to them. despite more ‘diversity’, the number of sg romances & lgb+ chars in existence has declined from ~9 to ~6
  • it absolutely panders to straight players who couldn’t stand the thought of their LI being a total flamer in someone else’s game
  • it absolutely panders to the idea that straight people must be included regardless of impact or necessity in order for something to be realistic, and that realism is in and of itself a thing that should be aimed for
  • there is no way to make a char straight rather than a previously considered other option w/out there being unfortunate implications about what constitutes an lgb+ person. this is a problem inherent in transforming a population from all lgb+ to no longer so
  • possibly the biggest issue is that in practice there will not be an ‘even’ split in the romance quality. having everyone be available to players of any gender was a safeguard that prevented straight characters from eating up all of the content but now that it’s removed you can guess from experience and demographic awareness what the results will be
    - the content differences in da:o and me3 romances were notorious. as has been pointed out, in da:o the straight characters were both clearly the most game-essential companions and had the most involved romances. in me3, the gay characters were introduced in the last game of a trilogy and weren’t even squad members, interaction with them was lacking and as much as I loved them they honestly felt like optional add-ons. 
    - when we split the system as a way of catering to all groups, the most Important group will inevitably get the best pick: the most major characters, the most interaction, the most fulfilment. the next pick is involving characters that whilst unsettling to them can also be available to this demographic (bi/pan/poly choices), and the final and least cared about is involving characters that exclude them (gay choices). no intense attention is going to go into characters whose content will not be played by the majority of gamers, this is the nature of a system that caters to ‘diversity’ and ‘realism’ rather than compassion

so I’ve seen other gay ppl celebrate this and yeah I’m with you friends, I for one am looking forward to getting the characters and romances that weren’t good enough for the straight demographic, I love scraps and not being able to access content, really gets me going

an as-yet-unnamed lovely young vulcan couple from the fic shimmy and I are writing - I find drawing oc’s really helps me get to know them. they’re ambassadors; the tiaras were given to them as gifts from a particularly friendly race they keep in close contact with. popped them in a pair of slightly tweaked gorgeous alexander mcqueen dresses because I have the enthusiasm but, alas, not the talent for fashion design. 

oh no they’re stunning anyway here’s seleia and t’mir

"We were bumped from two planes, and white passengers were put on those planes. We had to stay overnight in one city before we could catch a bus the rest of the trip to Daytona Beach. We came from California — and I knew what discrimination was — but it wasn’t a legislated thing like it was in the South. When I got to Jacksonville, I just walked into the white ladies’ restroom just to recover some of my dignity and my sense of myself because I was horrified by it." - Rachel Robinson [x]

White ppl were some real trashy ass assholes back then
