I have to ask, where does this "equality" stop with adding this or that into the game? To make myself perfectly clear, in any real life meaningful way I support true equality for everyone. I think gay people should be allowed any right or privilege anyone else has. Same goes for race, religion, and anything else, we are all human beings.
That said, in WoW, where does it stop? If you have a gay couple, better add a trans gender person, then the other gay couple (m/m instead of f/f or vice versa). After that, we'll need to represent all religion I suppose, all political affiliations... I demand fury couples, bdsm master/slaves, a troll with a foot fetish... If you leave out any of these things it clearly means you loathe them, and wish to marginalize their entire community...
Yes, I'm being hyperbolic, but I'm trying to get a point across. I don't think it's wrong for gay couples or transgender characters to end up in WoW, but I think it's not as simple as that either. You can try to keep things kind of generic and non inflammatory or you can try to represent everything and damn the backlash.
But I am serious about the question, it's not rhetorical. You want *your* view represented of course, but who do you leave out? Or do you cram anything anyone wants in because they should be represented here too?
