EA Under Attack From Anti-Gay Activists

EA has been hit by an ongoing barrage of hate mail, protesting against the existence of same-sex relationships in its games.

The thousands of emails, addressed to all of the company's top managers, accuse EA of forcing this content upon children and that they have been pressured by LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender) groups to do so.

Needless to say, all EA games include proper ESRB age rating and games that feature such content are clearly marked as not for children. Moreover, same sex relationships are not mandatory in Mass Effect and Star Wars: The Old Republic (the games being contested) and they are only offered as an option to people who choose to do so.

"Every one of EA's games includes ESRB content descriptors so it's hard to believe anyone is surprised by the content. This isn't about protecting children, it's about political harassment," said Jeff Brown, VP of corporate communications.

Some of the letters threatened to boycott all EA games unless the "offensive" content is removed.

"EA has not been pressured by any groups to include LGBT characters in our games. However, we have met with LBGT groups and sponsored industry forums to discuss content and harassment of players in online forums. In short, we do put options for same-sex relationships in our games; we don't tolerate hate speech on our forums," Brown clarified the company's position.

Evidences suggest that Florida Family Association is responsible for organizing and orchestrating the ongoing attack.

They only hate on the

They only hate on the guy-on-guy action though, lesbians are just curious and confused - it'll just take a good fucking will turn them around, right guys? (Attitude of typical 40-something middle-class white American)

FFA GO AWAY

It’s no surprise that the FFA would be leading this, these are the same idiots that are trying to take down G4TV because they say G4 promotes hardcore porn. The FFA says they fight to defend American values, but in truth they fight to force everyone else to believe what they do. Group like these make “The stupid American” saying look true, and they all need to just go away.

totally agreed

Also these "protesters" mostly, if not all, are chrisfags, they can't accept that the world turns around the sun, the earth is not flat, the human species are apes(biologically speaking...) and that the church is not in charge of the world anymore, they would like a world without any kind of freedom of think or speech.

LOL

"God" forbid any of them read your comment... someone could get a heart attack if you let them know the truth about all of that at the same time, either that or a literal mind blowing XDDD

You must be...

an Americunt...
Haven't you noticed that most of the people that speak English can't write it well, most of them are in the USA, so why do you expect that anybody can write perfect English, if the people of the country where it is the official language don't know about spelling or grammar????

The whole world speak English (as a business language it is a necessity), but writing it... it's a whole different world(metaphorically speaking), because is not the same as Italian, Portuguese, Spanish, French or German(or many other languages that have better grammatic rules).

"whatever he tried to say..." also, that phrase shows that you are one of those "chrisfags" (s)he's referring to... or maybe you don't even understand English at all, to need explanation about what's the point of his/her comment.

your grammar isnt so lovely either..

but honestly who actually tries for grammar on the internet? i mean really... no one cares about grammar unless its needed.

But back to the topic... its funny how we all become "fags/pervs/lesbians" for supporting gay rights isnt it? Religion can be a great thing, but you fucks that bash gays and other people who arent the same as you are just giving religion an even worse rep for these subjects
