BioWare – Dragon Age Writer Quits Over Death Threats About Gay Characters

Bioware corp

The “geek-averse” has come a long way when it comes to LGBT inclusion and tolerance.  Comic-Con (despite Ender’s Game) is a much more LGBT friendly Con and this year saw the beginnings of the first gay gamer’s conference GaymerX.  But there are still some GFB’s  out there (greasy fan boys) who are resistant to LGBT nclusion and sit in their parents basement with their heads up their asses holding a  joystick in one hand and bigotry in the other.

Case in point the cyber attack of Jennifer Hepler.

Jennifer Hepler A senior game writer at the video game development company BioWare has quit her position after  being targeted by angry fans of Dragon Age and receiving death threats on Twitter and the BioWare’s forums.

The attacks blamed Hepler for what were to be perceived as unpopular changes to the game  for its sequel, including the addition of female and LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender) characters in the game’s roster of player avatars.  So vicious were the attacks and threats Helper said that she was shown a sample of the forum posts by Electronic Arts (EA), the company that owns BioWare. “It included graphic threats to kill my children on their way out of school to show them that they should have been aborted at birth rather than have to have me as a mother.”

These gamers give “geek”a bad name and need to get a slap upside the head, a good scrubbing down with lye and a wire haired brush, and tied to a chair and forced to watch Priscilla Queen of the Desert on a constant loop for a week.  Maybe then they’ll think twice before threatening children over their own internal bigotry and they will learn some tolerance. to others..

It’s just a freaking game.

Star Wars Game To Introduce Gay Characters


If you’re an avid gaymer, then this little piece of news that you want to here. Following in the footsteps of-games like Skyrim and Dragon Age, Bioware’s DLC to Star Wars: The Old Republic titled The Rise of the Hutt Cartel will feature same gender romance (SGR) which is geek talk for gay characters. Unfortuntely for now these will be non playable characters but developers are still hopeful that with time this will change.

Jeff Hickman, executive producer to game development explains why the delay:

“I realize that we promised SGR (same gender romance) to you guys and that many of you believed that this would be with a companion character.

Unfortunately, this will take a lot more work than we realized at the time and it (like some other pieces of content we talked about earlier in the year) has been delayed as we focused on the changes required to take the game Free-to-Play.

As we have said in the past, allowing same gender romance is something we are very supportive of.”

So fellow gaymers, are you looking forward to this upcoming feature or do you want more?
