David King being gay is the worst direction for Behaviour

To be clear, Im gay in real life and the collaboration with GaymerX (is that the right name ??) is a disappointement.

David King is nothing representative of the gay community. And doing what JK Rowling did with Dumbledor is just so easy and fake.

I was really excited when Behaviour said they were collaborating with GaymerX to CREATE the first gay character for dbd.

My personal hopes was about a queer character. But I knew Behaviour would not take the risk.

Its more easy to create a gay character who looks straight, but its not representative at all. I know gay with straight look exist, but it doesnt help gay community to be accepted by everyone. It just says its wrong to be queer and its right to be gay but looking straight.

David was the most annoying gay fanfic I saw. And its too easy to recycle this fanfic and make it real.

Even if the character is a gay looking straight I though it would be a new character. I though the collaboration was about creating a whole chapter.

Im just disappointed and I think Behaviour is not supportive as they said they are about queer community.

    "The walking "princess" stereotype"

    "David actually a refreshing perspective"

    Its exactly what I denounce, its oppressive and almost homophobic to say that.

    Thank you to confirmed what I said.

    Being feminine is not a stereotype or maybe you are saying Im a stereotype ?

    I dont feel represented at all with David I just feel attacked once again. There are 0 representation of feminine guys in video games.

    Once again the gay guy is muscle man -_-

    While you are right that there is certainly not enough representation of feminine guys in games no matter if gay or straight its totally Okey for the muscle man to be gay and he is the first no one said he is the last. Maybe they took the safe route but let's be real taking the safest rout is understandable people are already complaining and if they had made a complete new char people would also complain that he is a toke char. And let's be real it might be a stereotype that the muscle man is gay now but making a very feminine guy would also be a stereotype for many people and you just can't represent every one at once when it's only one char

    You just have no arguments and you know Im right. Thank you next.

    I'm gay but do not really care if none are gay, some are or all are, they are characters in a game and it doesn't affect me in real life.

    Let's compromise - David gets to remain gay -but- bhvr adds a note to his lore saying he's a power bottom.

  • AnaraAnara Member Posts: 1,287

    Its wrong because it just says (again) that the only representative way of gay people in video games are masculine gays.

    Everybody says being feminine gay is a stereotype but its not because we have 0 representations.

    So you are saying being a power bottom is kinda feminine ? wow pls stop talking 😂

    You all are the ones who makes stereotypes, not me.

    The gay community has so many different types of people. I hope you and everyone be it lesbian or trans can have representation eventually. However this is a major step for us and I'm so happy. 🏳️‍🌈🏳️‍🌈

    My gaydar is off. If any male character in this game was gay I was for sure it'd be Felix.

    Some but again its for masculine gay guys and we (feminine gays) are again seen as a stereotype 🤡

    Like really when I am playing I’m not thinking about who Nea would be attracted to. They are fictional characters. Hell why don’t we find out which ones are vegans?

  • AnaraAnara Member Posts: 1,287

    I just see that once again feminine gays are marginalized.

  • KiridusKiridus Member Posts: 48

    Gamer, I damn near bought thigh-highs for myself before I started feeling worried that my parents would find out and disown me. Some of my friends found out I am gay because I kept wanting to play the feminine men in the games we played together.

    I am the #########' "feminine gay" you are talking about, and I think your point is #########.

  • AnaraAnara Member Posts: 1,287

    Maybe you just dont want the things to changes. For my own Im exhausted of this fake inclusion. I want real queer representation.

  • MozicMozic Member Posts: 601

    I feel like the context is different if the change is arising out of the reveal of new lore being introduced to the game, even if it's with an intentional objective of adding more representation to the game. It's not a retcon to continue to develop the character - "the dumbledore example" is an explicit retcon, where something is declared without having any new material to back it up.
