The makers of the online Star Wars computer game, Star Wars: The Old Republic, have introduced a gay planet to the game. On “Makeb,” men, women, and even aliens engage in same-sex relationships.
BioWare, the Canadian studio responsible for making the game, said they decided to add the gay planet due to pressure from gay players. But executive producer Jeff Hickman also claims that “allowing same gender romance is something we are very supportive of” and plan to add more same-gender options in the future.
Apparently, a lot of gay players are still dissatisfied because they gay characters are segregated from the rest of the galaxy. Apparently gays will not be happy until the entire Star Wars universe is filled with gay people!
P.S. For full disclosure, I stole the first part of my headline from The Sun. It was just too good not to use! Of course, the Daily Mail’s “Darth Gaydar” was tempting too.
