    Thank you Tumblr, but there was a pair of lesbian Miqo'te in the spring outside Forgotten Springs in that quest when you shoo away the men.

    Why am I not surprised at all?

    The chick dressed as 1.0 Minfillia for the Rising event was a lesbian as well.

    Before people continue dragging out every single example of gay/bi female NPCs lying around Eorzea, I think it's worth pointing out that this is the first time in the entire game we've seen men portrayed as openly homosexual. Lesbians are, no offense intended, the "okay" sort of homosexual as far as the "straight male" demographic is concerned. Having homosexual men appear is deliberately going beyond that acceptable norm. Which is great, especially for a Japanese game.

    Also a gay man here, but I appreciated the thought. I also appreciate that they didn't overstay their welcome as easily as they could have. It's cute, and it happened, and it's done.

    I was honestly happier to see that those two guys I have to watch "die" at the start of every WP run not only survived, but got so much growth and happiness out of it. I hate not being able to save everyone.

    I find it odd that homosexuality seems to have become trendy, which I feel is a disservice to the actual gay community.
    I feel that homosexuality should neither be damned nor glorified, it should just simply be accepted. Taking homosexuals and singling them out, for better or worse, creates a division between them and the rest of society instead of helping them to just be a normal part of it.
    Gay people are still just people, no better and no worse.

    As for the NPC's I liked them, not for the fact that they were gay but for how their feelings of not fitting in helped them empathize with the Tonberries and their plight. They acted as a nice narrative window for us to feel bad for the Tons and actually want to help them.

    Is seeing gay people in video games a new unicorn or something?
    What's with all the excitement? yes, we know you exist, you're people, etc.

    you know what I'd get excited for? When people stop throwing politics, agendas and the like in things meant for entertainment and escapism and just play games.

    That was really nice, actually making them characters with a story instead of just those chumps that got taken down in WP.

    It's kinda entertaining, because until I had it pointed out to me that they were a gay couple, I didn't even register that as the reason they were apparently not accepted. I interpreted it as the racial difference, not the sexuality thing. Hell, I didn't even realize they were both male in the first place.

    Pretty much. Pointing out does nothing. It just does exactly what you said, creates an unnecessary gap. There's no reason it should even be relevant in the majority of conversation. If someone is gay, that's that. Does it affect their ability to raid with you? No? Cool then. If it comes up in conversation, neat, you know more about the person. Otherwise, why should people care?

    No, those two are openly about it and have to deal with malice from everyone, due their race and gender but definitely that the miqo'te was super cute and the other one was ugly as crap but meh, maybe its is personalty or something.

    I honestly would think the Miqo'te would go well with another Miqo'te or at LEAST a Elezen but a Hyur, eww. Bad combo.
