    Hmm
    I don't see wynaut so long as they don't make a big thing of it. I think Somniac has a point though that it shouldn't be done just so they can show gay support. If you make someone gay, have some reasoning behind it.

    And oh God, the amount of lawsuits would be ridiculous.
    Why would a gay character make kids question their sexuality any more than a straight character?

    Also, many children know their sexuality at a young age. I had a "boyfriend" in second grade - I didn't know anything about love or lust or anything like that, but I had determined at that point that I was straight.

      I knew I was gay in first grade! And I was raised and surrounded by heterosexuals, so his point is a bit invalid.

        It'd be nice to see a few gay NPC couples who you can have double battles with and a canonically trans gym leader, but they'd be censored once the games were localized. If they feel that a swimmer's Speedo is too revealing, then there's no way they're letting a trans gym leader through.

          I don't remember the anime making any coherent statements on real-world issues, though I'm admittedly out of touch with it now. I'd welcome it over the usual shtick.
