MaddowBlog on MSNBC: A long time ago, in a galaxy far far, a gay...


Apparently the whole Religious Right versus same sex-romance-in-Star Wars-video-games dogfight isn't over yet.

Quick rewind: Recently, BioWare, the makers of the massively popular MMO video game Star Wars: The Old Republic, decided that one of your role playing options should be a same sex romance. Diverse, the universe is, hm?
Newsarama via Yahoo! News has the report: Same Sex Romance Comes to a Galaxy Far, Far Away.

Back to MaddowBlog:
Right on cue, the usual right-wing watchdogs got their midi-chlorians in a bunch and, just like here on Earth, they are trying to eliminate these rebel alliances.
The American Decency Association, Family Research Council, and Florida Family Association all piled on and their cluelessness is at Cowboy Bebop at His Computer levels. The wankiest of all the complainers were the Florida Family Association, who made the image of Darth Ru-Paul illustrating this entry, and alleged that gay activists were behind the request instead of the game's customers.

I didn't get to that part of the Sith Warrior storyline. I think the furthest I had gotten was off Dromund Kaas. And I like Vette.

Yeah, while a lot of players seem to enjoy being sadistic to her, I found it really hard to be an asshole and took the collar off her.

Though, I find it hard to be a dick in computer-games in general. I always play the nice guy.

You can't romance Vette till the collar comes off, just FYI.
