    I think this is ridiculous. Why is there a need to “introduce a gay character” to a fucking videogame?!!? The game is obviously geared to kids, as evidenced by the language used by the characters. their “trendy” verbiage is classically geared to attract a younger audience, and while I have no problems with kids learning about sexuality, I think its a PARENT’S job NOT a videogame’s. While the character of Brian Falsworth was RETCONNED to be a gay character (which I also find rather ludicrous) there is no need and no real reason for a kid’s videogame character to be revealed as gay. Good thing theres no “gay agenda” huh?

What do you think?
