Mass Effect 3 And The Case For A Gay Shepard

Apparently last week's episode of Jimquisition was far too subtle for some folk, and it threw up a lot more questions than answers. It also sparked a debate in which some of the dumbest arguments against the inclusion of a gay game protagonist were ever heard.

Fortunately, Jim Sterling is the national authority on doing kissing with men, and lends his razor-sharp insight to this discussion for the final, righteous time.

Watch Video

Really people? Assosiating homosexuality with pedophilia? This isn't the 50s...

ME3:AGELS made me laugh, and thats what you should do too.

Homosexuality exists in over 450 animal species. Homophobia exists in only one. Which one seems more unnatural now?

People need to grow up.

Awesome funny video, great points. I wonder if shoving the rubber cock-bat in your mouth was necessary, but it made me go ha-ha none the less.

seriously kids. If you are offended by an option to make a fictional character gay in game. you should not play that game at all. we had this discussion with Dragon Age 2 already!

Even after I saw the description I thought of this: "I don't mind it as an option I have nothing against homosexuality,even less so in a game." And it still stands after watching the video.

I try to keep an open mind and perspective.

Now let's just hope that half the dimwits who make those excuses won't fall into a homosexual relationship without realizing it and then Fox News comes on board to completely degrade this subject into stupidity.

PS: Pretty sure that's gonna happen.

Big brass balls, Jim. You has them.

Can't believe people didn't get it last time. Though I'm not going to lie Jim, it was pretty hard to listen to, but still thanks. I have a few gay family members, mail and female, and I'm sick of people always saying such shit about gay people. So thanks for telling those people off.

Trust me, it was necessary.

I really needed to do it.

Good for you Jim. The people complaining about the option for OTHER PEOPLE to persue a fictional relationship in a video game are just like the people complaining about the Archie comic with the gay wedding. Putting it on a store shelf isn't intrusive or oppressive. I can understand why people might be bothered by human-alien sex. The game developers point out some of the issues within the game, but homophobes just don't have any justification for their argument. I don't see agoraphobics complaining about multiplayer in games.

If that's what you want to do that's fine. It would have been nice to have a disclaimer to warn us viewers. I'm libertarian about it. As long as your not forcibly raping someone, stealing from someone, hurting someone (unwillingly), and/or killing someone I don't care. But just give me a heads up that your doing something that might offend.

P.S. I will probably still watch but the heads up will still be nice.

Preach on, brother!

It could be considered too subtle because a lot of people here aren't the most intelligent people on the internet. You could have put a big flashing "THIS IS SARCASM" label for the duration of the video and it still would have been too subtle for some of these people. Of course, you obviously already knew that, so why am I rambling on about it?

Hurray for the return of the dildo bat, and hurray for the continuation of common sense as that seems to be so rare these days.

The only group of people any of these videos might offend are stupid people.

Why would you not want Shepard to fuck guys, it only make him more pimp.

It was in Mass Effect 1 & 2 at one point:

Really have no idea why it was cut.

Well, there isn't any butt-hurt in here yet and I'm glad to see that's the case. Great vid, Jim, it's a shame that this still needs to be discussed every time this comes up, but, there's no better way to put homophobic idiots in their place than with a big floppy dick.

Thank God for Jim Sterling. Thank God.

I agree it had no problem for my in DA2, i didn't pick it. The options were there but i didn't pick them, simple. But i didn't see the pedo-Shepard on the forum. I not going looking because god damn, if that is what people are using as an argument (i do fear for the world).

Boom. Headshot.

Well said, Jim. VERY well said.

Having it as an option shouldn't piss anyone off. I mean, that's like saying that you're offended that a PC shooter has an option to invert the X and Y axis.

And while I WAS aware that some adults *glares at the mound of stupidity that is Santorum* still had this gay = pedo mentality, but to see an ESCAPIST member (one that doesn't seem to be the only one I can imagine saying that) saying THAT...That's a little bit upsetting.

I won't be playing a gay shepard in my game, mostly because I don't feel like it. But I'm not going to raise a fuss about it, because why the hell should I?

i think that sums up this incoming thread.

Based on what I've seen in past videos, like with his chainsaw sword, I'm beginning to wonder if Jim has some special fixation with melee weapons. Not that there's anything wrong with that. A man and his giant purple weaponized dong can be a beautiful thing.

I'm expecting the same excuses to come up anyway. And especially the people who blew through several of them, changing their story to conveniently dodge the real issue.

Also, Freddie Mercury is a great example. He slept with a lot of girls in his life but was gay. I guess him sleeping with men doesn't mesh with the canon Freddie, but whatever.

Awesome video.
Also feel ridiculously proud that a quote of one of my posts showedup of 0.1 seconds in the video. I'm famous now

Ummm....If your talking about his last video (The gay love story) there was a warning right before it started that said it would be graphic. Two if you count the age gate.

Fortunately, he got the US version. The Japanese version has the veins and head edited.

I have a problem with the gay relationship option. It's the same problem I have with the straight romance options and the cheating non-gender but looks like a girl so everyone's happy romance option. It's usually terribly written, usually unbelievable and any physical intimacy between two character models almost always looks stupid goofy.

...which of course doesn't mean I don't do them, I just admit they feel pretty stupid on the (w)hole.

Lord_Gremlin:
Considering the ending of this Jimquisition i think I will share my personal opinion.

Well now, I do have a problem with gay people. Aka they are sick in the head and whatever excuse medics came up in USA when they realized they can't cure them did not just made them normal... Look, curing schizophrenia is not easy either. If possible at all.

That said excuses debunked in this video are pathetic indeed.
And pedophilia and homosexuality are indeed vastly different things. That said, both are cases of mental disorder but vastly different ones.

But what's most important here is that developers, Bioware, don't owe anything to anyone. If they want to include whatever new content it is entirely up to them. Your only choice is to either buy their game or don't buy it. It's as simple as that. Attacking writers for example is childish and outrageous. You may disagree with them or consider their creation abysmal.. But the only thing you're entitled to is ability to skip their game and don't buy it.

Man, can I borrow your time machine?

Was that Jacob? They bothered to bring him back?

urgh. I would have thought we were done with this topic last week. Oh well. At least this week the video wasn't boring and unintersting and tried to make itself funny by inserting a penis joke every other second. Now can we move on to something actually intersting?

There are real men, in real life that you're free to choose to suck off.
I guess that makes you canonically gay too.

Thank god for you Jim, you eloquent wordsmith, you.

It needed to be said. And it needed to be said in exactly this way. Thanks, Jim.

Good video, Jim. Sadly no you aren't going to be able to cure the internet of being full of the socially and/or politically retarded without some drastic social engineering or serial murder though. So I suspect that the uncountable number of homophobes will remain secretly masturbating to gay porn in their basements and proclaiming how gay people are bad to the rest of the world for a long time to come.

Hope ya checked the bat out and/or cleaned it a little before 'using' it though, man. Not sure where that thing's been.

I'll admit that I didn't read much of the comments on the last video, but people brought up pedophilia? Really? Get the fuck out.

Jim adds another famous weapon to his fearsome arsenal, right next to the Lancer.

Wait, really... Ok ... Lets think about this one...
1)It's normal to want things that make you happy
2) Your sexual organs cant tell the difference between other sexual organs(only your brain can)
3)They respond to physical stimulation
4)Arousal is all in the mind,your mind decides what you like.
5) Using your logic, should we bring it forth that people who only find models attractive are mentally unwell, as well as people who dont want to have sex with fat,disfigured or handicapped people of the opposite gender.
6)or should we say bisexuality, homosexuality and heterosexuality are all normal verations of sexual desire just as we say someone who doesnt find every women attractive isnt mentally unwell.?
