Sand Wraith -- Okay I see what you mean now, Gp, Lanth. It doesn't help at all with breaking stereotypes.
Lanthanide -- but when the only homosexual character in a particular piece of media falls squarely into stereotypes for homosexuals, I call shennanigans
Lanthanide -- if she weren't the only homosexual character in the game then I'd give them the benefit of the doubt that it wasn't stereotyping
Lanthanide -- like the thought process was either: 1. lets make a big beefy tank woman.... oh, lets make her gay 'cause she's butch! or 2. lets make a lesbian character.... that means she has to be butch, right?!
Lanthanide -- I think it's reinforcing stereotypes
