    I assuming that since we're all members on this website that we're all gamers, either casually or hardcore. Something I've noticed about the gaming community as a whole is that there is a lot of queer bashing, either with "you're gay" thrown around casually or some of the more serious and ignorant trans bashing.

    So, how do you feel about it being a queer gamer? Do you actively try to correct people when they make such statements or do you ignore it?

    Anytime someone calls me gay or makes a comment referring to me being gay I just say "Only 50% of the time. smiley8.gif "

    Anytime I'm called gay in a game I usually retort with "why yes and judging by your interest i suppose you would like a demonstration?"

    If I'm playing on a game that has voice chat they mostly just ask for pics to which I usually say something along the lines of "Go fuck yourself"
    But If I'm playing a game were you communicate through text chat and someone calls me gay I usually reply with "You have no idea" and then pwn them in any way that's convenient.

    Coincidently, andytime me and my friends are playing games I usually named my character Armored Angel

    I've noticed that, if i play MW2 anywhere past about 10 o'clock at night with my clan tag: gay or (even sometimes) LGBT i end up getting a hell of a lot of abuse wherever i go. I know i'm kind of bringing on myself so i ignore it as much as i can but i should be able to have my clan tag as gay or LGBT without having abuse hailed at me.

    Usually, though my best retort to someone saying "you're a faggot" is that i'm still getting getting more sex than you ever will. That shuts up alot of annoying people online.

    I hate the whole concept of non-straight women being novelties.

    No kidding. I get at least one request a day for pics. Usually from guys I know. Isend them a pick of me flipping them off with an attached note that says "Hot enouhg for ya?"
    That's happened so often I have the message saved on my phone so I can just forward it
