Homophobic Video Game Fans Boycott EA

AllOut.org Screenshot

(photo from AllOut.org) The Force is not so strong with some video game fans, it seems. Because of EA Games’ inclusion of a gay romance in the latest Star Wars game story line, the company has been attacked by their own fans with homophobia-laden complaints stating there will be a boycott. Someone should really tell these folks that this is not a trap (rimshot) and it’s only included in the game if the player CHOOSES to put it in their story line. There is something you can do if you disagree with this negativity. Sign this petition from ALLOUT.ORG and once their goal is met, AllOut members will dress as Star Wars characters to deliver the petition to EA headquarters 🙂 Sign it, you must! This site runner did.

  1. Yeah stupid people are always complaining about that crap in EA games. You don’t want your character to be gay? Have him romance with a girl. Boy, that was hard! I don’t know why it matters!

    Just wanted to give you a heads up, but your link to the petition isn’t working.
