Can we all just agree that there would be more controversy if same-sex relationships were in the game? I know the anti-g@y community would have went nuts if same-sex relations were included in the game.

EDIT: I was forced to put an @ in g@y but could say sex? Really? Thank you, Neocensor

The anti-g@y community wouldn't have been listened to because they're idiots

I do think the whole fiasco is an overreaction though, it's only a game. I understand why people would think it doesn't promote equality and such, but still

Forced and arbitrary diversity is not equality

Being as I'm someone who's happily in a same-sex relationship, whenever I see the media embracing this concept it makes me smile. Just to know that people are starting to let go of that simple-minded "only men and women should be together" bull crap. Even if it's little by little, some change is better than no change. And personally I feel that it makes it all more exciting, but that could just be because that's what I'm into. Positive homosexual references, I'm all for that

What a time we live in where controversy can be sparked over the omission of a feature as opposed to the inclusion of one... Christ, people... *facepalm*

It's one thing to get insulted over something offensive that was put in, but we have people offended that they didn't include a feature? I've been disappointed with the lack of additions in some games, but this is just bloody ridiculous. They're gonna freaking put what they want in the game. If you want something else, expect it to be a sequel addition, not a "RRRRGGHHH FIX THIS NOW!!!11!!"

Ehh..It's just a game. If it's family oriented, keep it straight. You don't like it, get another game more adult themed. This isn't about homosexual rights or whatever, it's a game..get over it.

this is a lose-lose situation people will never be satisfied because in general we don't agree with all orientation. Nintendo handled this well; I'm actually impressed.

What's so mature about same-sex relationships?

People care too much about stupid shit. Seriously, if only all of the people who are mad about it just spent the same amount of effort towards something significant (like ACTUAL real-life same-sex marriage).

Nintendo even put out a really solid response to the matter. Asking for more would be absurd, at this point.

I think a lot of the outcry came from it the glitch being removed and people wanting Nintendo to work it onto the game as an actual 'feature', if it wasn't there in any form it probably wouldn't have been made into as big a deal.

Most of the controversy sparked from people fighting amongst themselves over it, like the comment ManCub08 made about homosexuality being more inappropriate than heterosexuality because....reasons.

Whatever, I'm entitled to my own opinion.
