I'm a little bit disgusted with the community right now, all the attacks on the Legend of Zelda Gender Neutral hacks are unfounded! For one such attackers are saying it's disgusting and bringing up stuff about the LGBT community, when in fact it has ZERO to do with that community.
It sounds like people who hide behind the Attack Helicopter meme are plain out anti-gay and anti-woman, insecure guys attacking a father for making hacks for his daughter that even she might not even play one day.
So think about that, a man does something gender neutral FOR HIS DAUGTER and all of a sudden it's a free pass at hate towards women and LGBT community.
The reviews that vortex wrote for them are also questionable. Calling them vapid is entirely accurate, but he goes so far as to call them "disgusting" and "grotesque", which makes it impossible to hide the fact that he is bigoted asshole.
For your information, I edited all 3 of my reviews into a lot more friendlier ones (pending in queue). I also did not call anyone a "bigoted asshole" in those reviews. And they were actually mocking the review called "what a nice concept", since this is clearly too much to handle: a vapid hack with such a nice/neat review.
By the way, what is a Neutral gender. Isn't that a definition of a hermaphrodite, aka shemale, or maybe a person with no genitals. Excuse me for thinking that women with penises are disgusting. So you are saying if someone thinks that, he is a "bigoted asshole".
If someone wanted a female to associate with the male character of the video game, he certainly has done a very poor and false job on this.
Not only are his actions vapid, they are completely unnecessary. I finished practically all Tomb Raiders (aka a man was playing a video game, in which a female was controled) and you don't see me crying for a gender neutral words or the change of the main sprite. The authors of Tomb Raider actually calculated that if a man will control a woman in the video game, that this will be beneficial in general, since we might "look after her more" than a male character.
Associating with charcters of video games directly is laughable. What if you are playing Donkey Kong. I hope you don't think you are a monkey, specially collecting all of those bananas, which you might hate in real life.
That's why the helicopter thing is in complete order. What if you control a helicopter, plane, tank, ship in a video game. What if you build houses in Sim City or build walls and move armies in some strategy games. Are you then not a "force" or "god" even, since you can control armies and build cities, make worlds. Obviuosly you don't think you are "that" in real life.
And there unfortunately IS a connection to LGBT in gender neutral, since if a woman wants to associate with Link and rescue Zelda out of the cell, you would be having a woman do a "man's job" of rescuing princesses and fighting pig-men. Isn't such a woman thus gay (behaves like a man). Or indeed, if a woman in rescuing another woman from a cell, we can assume she might like her, making her a lesbian by definition.
Saying the attack helicopter is anti-gay or anti-woman is false all the way.
Next time when a father wants to make a Zelda adoptation for his daughter and wants her to associate with the main character, do Change that character into a woman and thus change all instances of "boy" into "girl". Now a woman can indeed play as a woman.
But again this concept might be false again, since young women/girls might not enjoy playing a game where they rescue princesses out of jail. So maybe he should just buy her a Barbie game, so she can dress her up, rather than to go on a quest of saving the world, using the sword to kill soldiers. I really don't have an insight into what young girls prefer in a video game.
I had various warnings issued and restricted access etc. So I really have no interest in further debates, conflicts or dramas, where people are calling me "bigoted asshole" just for stating my oppinion in an (unfriendly) review.
