Tl;DR of the carnage: guy whines about Bioware catering to those filthy homos and women in Dragon Age 2 by providing the option of "romances" with NPCs of all stripes.

"To summarize, in the case of Dragon Age 2, BioWare neglected their main demographic: The Straight Male Gamer." WHAT IS THIS I DON'T EVEN

"You have to understand that the Straight Male Gamer can't just be lumped into one catagory." Kind of like those Straight Females and Gay Gamers of Both Sexes you bash/ignore, right?

"Its ridiculous that I even have to use a term like Straight Male Gamer, when in the past I would only have to say fans..." Oh, you poor thing... Was it hard realizing this wasn't the 1950s?

"It makes things very awkward when your male companions keep making passes at you. The fact that a "No Homosexuality" option, which could have been easily implemented, is omitted just proves my point." *brb, brain breaking*

"The idea of privilege is ridiculous. The "privilege" always lies with the majority because if your goal is to make a game that will be liked by as many fans possible, then it makes sense to focus on that largest group." WHY? Why do people keep making this argument and thinking it's valid!? This is the very definition of privilege--which you refuse to acknowledge 1. exists, 2. you have it, and 3. bash repeatedly those who don't, while expecting to be catered to. Please, stop thinking of yourself and your demographic--and the accomodations that you have--is normal, and is all that deserve to exist.

"You'll win praises and 10/10's from gay activists and feminists for your great strides in promoting "equality" and eliminating "straight male privilege", but you'll have loss fans like me." And believe me when I say it is such a big loss.
