The above clip is from the video game “BULLY“, in which the main character goes around on different bullying missions. The thing is, the bully can also kiss guys. In the original version, the gay interactions had no bearing on the game. However, in the new “Scholarship Edition”, kissing male classmates is a goal and earns you an “Over the Rainbow” badge.
Here’s my thing – the gays come in all shapes and sizes, bullies and wimps, and so on. So yeah, it’s believable that a character like the one in the video game would want to kiss boys. However, I wouldn’t go around lauding this as a big step for gay issues, because in the game they’re making the gay an issue.
In “The Sims” you’ve been able to make gay couples forever and there were no “Rainbow Points” or anything that differentiated them from the rest of the neighbourhood. I know because I have spent many hours stealing Mortimer Goth from Bella and waiting for him to die so I could have all his money.
