Pride outfits? Yes/No?

    If they start doing this, I'd like to see more groups involved. I'd be particularly interested in Mexican/Latin themed cosmetics as well.

    Considering that it's a Canadian based company, I'd like to see something done in support of the Indigenous people of Canada. The discrimination they face flies under the radar compared to other marginalized groups.

    Some of the stories are very sad.

    I don't want to be the black sheep here, but I honestly think that's not a good idea at all. I don't know if many of you acknowledge that DBD isn't a game that just american people play. It's almost worlwide guys. Most of the people in Canada, USA, etc. truly support the LGBT community, but that's not the case everywhere.In A few countries from Europe and not only, it is still a hot topic, and by bringing in game this kind of outfits just seems ridiculous to me, thinking that a lot of the playerbase will just be MAD.

    I'm not a part of the LGBT community, and I don't have anything against them, but can we actually enjoy together a game that doesn't promote sexual orientation? Let it be just a survival game with some diversity. If you think that a certain character could be a part of the LGBT community, well good for you, dont emphasize that concept over and over again. Keep it simple, we don't need any more drama in this world cuz' it's too much already.

    Sure, why not?

    First of all, don't derail the thread. OP is asking something and you clearly are derailing it.

    Second, no. If they do a happy pride outfit, you will need to purchase it. LGBT are not a merchandise, that's what some people can't see.

    Every company when says about pride or saying "look, we made a gay/lesbian character" then LGBT members buys it a lot saying "Oh WOW. Such an amazing comunity filled on love. I am going to support them. #lLoveislove" and NO, they are selling you. You're not a merchandise, if you're proud to be gay, such as myself you know your value and that no one should treat gays as something they can sell or get profit for it.

    Third. Being homophobe is like being aracnophobe, you can't force someone to like something that they dislike, that's being open minded, knowing that not everyone is going to agree with you and that's fine. Thing is, tons of LGBT members think that everyone should love them and when someone says he/she dislike then you say he/she is an homophobe and perhaps some mean things to them. Probably they will react bad, because you said some mean things to them and that doesn't help for them to open their minds.

    I'd have liked them for survivors but I think they'd look a bit odd on most killers aside from the Legion

    yeah me neither, from my experience with those kind of things it can go bad real fast. No offense to anyone but from my experience with " pride" people they really are prideful, which is okay but no matter what I do or say they are too stubborn to understand not that I'm saying this for everyone, but it does irritate me just a bit. Again I'm not against them I just try not to start anything.

    No. I fully support the LGBT community, but keep sexual preferences out of the game. It's fine IRL, but let's just keep the game outside of this. Someone will always be offended by something.

    Most people don't play games for politics and although representation is a good thing, adding cosmetics that only appeal to a single group of people could alienate more players than it would seek to bring together. Also another downside would be certain killer players tunneling and camping survivors wearing these cosmetics, or survivors going out of there way to bully killers with cosmetics such as these.

    What a waste of energy, this is why I said they should of just stayed neutral because now everyone will demand some nonsense.

  • iBananaSamichesiBananaSamiches Member Posts: 57

    Everyone goes on about how a charm or outfit would encourage homophobes to target players more, but you forget a lot of people have their IDs/gamertags etc as something that includes “GAYmer” les[insert pun] and so on, and DON’T get targeted. Hell, I had my GT that included GAYmer for a good while and there was no difference in my gaming before or after.

    It’s a reach to say killers would target survivors more, etc. It’s a game, people are gonna play how they usually play - regardless. If that person is generally toxic they’re gonna be toxic regardless of whether you’re gay/straight or whatever.

    just my two cents.

  • OrionOrion Member Posts: 16,627

    They didn't stay neutral, they explicitly included heterosexual representation all the way back when the Nurse was released.

  • HuffHuff Member Posts: 1,346

    I've said it before and I'll say it again: maybe I just don't get it because I'm not LGBTQ+ or whatever, but I always felt like the best way to be inclusive and make people feel welcome is to literally just treat them like anybody else. I would imagine if I just happened to be of a different sexual orientation and people were praising me just for liking to do certain stuff in bed, it would feel just awkward to me. I don't see how it's normalizing the LGBTQ+ community or any other marginalized group or whatever you call them if you try to put them up on a pedestal and act like they're special. At that point it's just making them "not normal" but in a different way.

    But hey what do I know? I'm not LGBTQ+.

    It doesn't need it. I don't understand pushing the movement into everything, everywhere. It's fine, you'll find loads of support (and hate) anywhere you go, but that doesn't mean everywhere needs to have an opinion on it nor be active about it. DBD clearly shows support; it really doesn't need to be a poster for the cause in the way you want it to be. You have the support, just leave it at that.

    kinda off topic but are there any multiplayer games, dbd-like that did actually introduce pride outfits or references to the LGBT community? From what I know, no, but I might be wrong.
