i’m sorry if this comes of as rude but i don’t understand, why is it a problem if we have an lgbtq character or not?

for all we know trapper could be gay, we simply don’t know.

why don’t we know? because it never tells us.

why doesn’t it tell us? because it doesn’t matter.

you don’t sit there getting out of your way to make straight characters so why get out of your way to make an lgbtq one?

it does not matter if someone is lgbtq or not, there is no reason so specify a sexuality in someone’s story. a killers story should be about then becoming a killer, not them riding another mans dick.

    Don't worry OP, I also don't get why people want an LGBT+ character, I understand that they want a character to represent them but wouldn't asking every patch and stuff be worse for normalizing? I want a mexican survivor or killer but we don't get what we want.

    I would be down for that ngl, I'm straight but I have nothing against anyone, for me people is people regardless of their sexual preference (I may have worded that wrong).

    But they really added straight relationships to the game? I never heard of that but I don't read lore.

    According to the Wiki no, she is lebanese american.

    The closest we have to a mexican survivor is Jane while she isn't mexican at least she is latina.

    Honestly? I'd be fine with this.

    I have no issues with people writing or believing a character to be x or y.

    "Oh hey, Trickster what is your sexuality?"

    "나는 재미로 사람들을 고문하고 죽인다."

    Jokes aside, I agree.

    Don't mistake fan made ships with official relationships made by BHVR.

    Yeah, the charm of the Nurse and the Wraith dancing, as well as the comments about them being a "thing" are totally fan-made

    Because players are also LGBTQ+.

    Was gonna give my take, but @MadLordJack and @glitch296 explained it perfectly.

    On one hand, I want people to understand so I don't have to see threads like this everywhere I go.

    On the other, Google is right there. Right ######### there.

    Julie and Frank, Nurse and her husband, David and his girlfriend.

    Those are the one's off the top of my head, I think Felix also has mention of a girlfriend, but I'm not sure.

    Some people just want representation.

    Felix had a six month pregnant girlfriend at the time of his disappearance, yes.

    Means he's also the first Survivor to canonically be a parent as well, joining Oni on that front.

    Answer is simple:

    To feel seen.

    Headcanons are fine and dandy, but they are just that.

    Having canonically queer characters is a way of saying 'yep, you exists and kudos for that'

    Like, people don't want a character that is a walking cliché or JUST queer. Look at what we got in terms of heterosexual character in the lore: David had a girlfriend mentioned in text, Felix's girlfriend is pregnant. And people don't ask for more than something like that.

    For example declaring deathslinger bi by having a line like 'As vicious and merciless as he's with his enemies, as kind he was with his friends, and as compassionate with the men and women he found himself in bed with, whether or not the latter two overlapped'

    or something like that.

    Just an... acknowledgement that one's valid.

    I do consider it. And i don't care. Hell some of the games i enjoy the most are games where english isn't even the primary language of choice and there are no non-asian characters.

    It's trolling to see these threads in every game I play now. For about 3 months straight the WoW forums were straight up SPAMMED with threads about that (at one point there was 10-12 on the front page)--despite there already being some representation in that game. They've died down considerably since, but there's still at least one every day, and the community has written it off as trolling now.

    IMO, the characters sexualities shouldn’t be in the game at all, however we already have crossed that line so why not have at least one gay character

    This was actually what the devs attempted and stated they wanted to do.

    sad thing is.. they failed miserably. But no one had a problem with it when they didn’t hold their word back then. It’s only now when LGBTQ+ will be treated equally that it should be completely excluded..

    (or did you actually propose this back when Nurses backstory was revealed? Then I apologize for assuming. But frankly.. I don’t think so)

    Why not? It's a game with characters that resemble humans, it's nice to have representation and when representation doesn't harm anyone which it hasn't and doesn't then it should be included, it's really not hard to figure out.

    Why we want to normalize this in a horror game? If they will add a gay I want him to be killer from first half of XX century not just a guy that is mentioned that he is gay withour any reason

    why not? horror has always had close links to sexuality and im pretty sure ANOES2 was pretty homoerotic lol

    Considering all of the ass shots, I'd say yes, it was very homoerotic.
