That's all fine and good, except for that this is the internet, and there is literally countless amounts of different websites and chatrooms where you talk all day about being gay. Want to find gay friends that you can chat to about being gay? Welcome to the internet! You can do all those things!

This is a video game focused on killing and destroying, so instead of worrying about finding gay friends on here, just go kill and destroy things in the game, then go cool off with a nice relaxing gay chat somewhere else on the internet that's designed for that.

You don't have friends on LoL, do you?

except some people want to find other gay people who also play league of legends. if you are not gay, just ignore the thread. how hard is that, why tell them to shut up and go somewhere else


I never told anyone to shut up, or even hated against them. In fact, I'm all for whatever you want to do in your personal life, and wish you all the best in it.

My point is, is if finding gay people to play this game with is so important, go make a forums called "LGBT League Players" or something, and get over the fact that you can't say the word "gay" in a game where it is 99% of the time used in a negative connotation, by what is widely regarded as one of the worst communities in gaming.

Nope, zero friends. All because I suggested an alternate solution to finding gay league of legends players. You got me.

And you're giving preferential treatment to one group over another. All under the guise of equality.


Erm, no. You're allowing the minority group to do something the majority group has always had the privilege of doing: easily finding people like them. And yes, under the guise of equality.

Assuming that gay players want to be friends just to hook up is horribly reductive.


Yes, it would be like assuming chubby chasers want to meet fat chicks online just to hook up. How presumptuous!

You don't have to make a forum thread about finding other gays, just add anyone who mains taric or ezreal as a friend.

When someone other than gay people tend to look at sexual orientation, they look at it only as the act. But where you have a behavior, you have social constructs that subsume personalities, behaviors, and values. There are sensibilities at work and, sure, they are like all cultures parasitically entering into the citizen and forming that person, but we're only human, man. We might know that it is the environment that damages us and turns us into what we are, and yet the damage is done and we go forth living in this way.

Plenty of gay people, for instance, will see that sexual orientation does not matter, but they are just a segment of the whole. There's a real culture out there, and like-minded people with similar sensibilities will want to be together. Comfort, baby.

Why does sexual orientation have anything to do with anything?
By using this in your friend search you are only furthering segregation and mistrust.
You are judging people who may or may not be your friends based on them being gay.
I don't care what you're into, who you're into, or why, you either are cool to hang out with or you are not.

I personally don't see the reason WHY you have to find someone gay to play with....the sexual orientation doesn't matter with the people I play with, oh your gay? I'm pansexual, whatever. It doesn't matter if I can't find someone who links with my sexuality, it don't make ****

What frustrates me is that the guy this poster is reponding to was responding to a thread where a summoner asked gay people to post on his forum so he could add them in game.

If I made a thread saying "If you're straight add me" I would be called closed-minded, downvoted, and considered a bigot.

So why is it okay to make a thread saying "Add me if you're gay" but not "add me if your straight"? Why is one acceptable and another considered bigotry?


because being straight puts you in a majority where you are free to love who you want without the fear or worry that someone might hate you (or god forbid hurt you).

to answer your question its okay to make add me if your gay thread and its also okay to make one that says add me if your straight but you really wouldn't because that's the majority of the people who play and therefore an irrelevant qualifier for an "add"
