Eheh, that's fine and dandy and all, but EA... no one wants your support! People who have pleased the general gay and straight populace for decades, like Oreo, are the kind of support people want. EA has f**ked up quite badly already, now they're kind of just the elephant in the room when it comes to supporting a whole group. Not to mention, if their reason for support is because they allow gay interaction in their games, then they need to work on their testimony. Truly, I support gay marriage, which is why I stand strongly against having EA in for support.


Dude, EA thinks the act is wrong, so they're against it. That's a good thing. Seriously, not wanting a group to support what you're supporting is stupid.

I sincerely doubt EA publicly oppose this act because they feel a moral obligation to do so

I don't have anything against their opposition, don't get me wrong... but don't confuse their attempt to garner positive publicity (for once) with an actual investment in the ideal. Or perhaps I'm just a cynic.

No, you're right. This generates some desperately needed good will for EA, and as a big name in the gaming industry they know that younger folk tend to be all gay for the gays so standing against the DOMA will help out their tainted image, maybe. It probably won't help much, but still there's a chance.

Well if I knew what a condescending *insert word here* was then I'd answer your question.

ShadowJ you can't expect everyone to just forgive and forget. Remember the little boy who cried wolf?

I'm glad they're supporting gay marriage and all but part of me wonders how sincere about it they really are, are they all in or is it at least partailly a publicity stunt?

What? Don't like the truth? Or swearing on the internet?

I have no issues with swearing, if you wish I can start by doing so but considering there are many choice words to insert there, that's why I chose the terms "insert word here"

As to not liking the truth...truth has nothing to do with this, any of Ded Valve's comments within a positive article have always shined upon the negative side of things...by all means "think of EA as shady, dodgy or not sincere about the subject" but I have not seen one Ded Valve comment that gives or adds anything decent to anything really.

Quite frankly it gets boring...I thought I was bad but boy was I wrong. In fact it's pretty much attitude's like Ded Valve's that makes me think holding grudges is pathetic. By all means complain about stuff but by god it gets old quick

despite this whole problem that's going on around the states i must admit i am quite impressed. the homosexual minority as it was always assumed actually starts to confront the american ways of life and manages to gain a lot of support in the process.

and rightly so, it's those possessive flag waving idealists that give the states a bad name in the first place :/
it's okay to support your home country and every human shares that responsibility but no one has the right to assume control over other people's life decisions. i don't care if it'l take another 1000 years to get that point across but the marriage defenders will simply have have to bite the bullet and deal with it the fact that the choice simply does not belong to them.

sides, look what happened to northern Ireland, some of those religious guys there have been trying to force each other's believes on one another for decades. the solution seems so easy but became so complicated at the same time.

I hope people in the States don't feel as strongly about this issue as the Northern Irish felt/feel about the Catholic & Protestant issue, it didn't turn out too well for a lot of innocent people over the years.

i don't think it ever will be that bad. but the gay/anti-gay decision will not go smooth either.
when it comes to the point everyone wants the best for those they care about, it works that way for both sides.

sadly one of them will have to be disappointed.

my hopes ride with the people who want to allow the marriage though. it'l take some pressure off those people, it's not easy being gay. an old colleague of mine told me once what it's like. things like being shamed out of the religious community, hateful neighbors, colleagues that wanted him gone, and to think that this man has been helping people with severe handicaps for more then 30 years on a crappy payroll simply because he believes everyone deserves a good life. shit like that happens all the time :/

Exactly, the marriage defenders and similarly minded people all seem to think its a crime against nature or something to be gay despite it not affecting them even the slightest bit and its certainly not their problem. I'm not gay so of course I would find it awkward to be hit on by another guy, but its not any different than getting hit on by someone of the opposite sex your not interested in.
