I’m pansexual and polyamorous and I, on the other hand, would love to see more representation. I agree that it’s patronizing to add “token” characters, but that’s because they’re usually nothing but that specific character trait.
"Here, have a gay NPC. He stands in the corner and talks about his boyfriend" does very little beyond giving some basic lore fodder for RPers that tells them it’s something that exists.
But it’s not about standing up for anybody or trying to speak over someone— again, it’s just normalizing/humanizing the concept for people like my previous anon who seem to confuse liking to see someone like you onscreen with politics. People, and therefore characters, are multi-faceted. I’m sorry you disagree, but I would honestly love if a well-developed character in areas other than their love life were to casually drop that they have a preference for the same gender. Anduin admitting that he’s nervous about having to marry for a new queen one day. Sylvanas dropping that she never much cared for men in life.
Again, I’m not saying they’re necessary additions to enjoy the game— everybody enjoys it just fine. But the same can be spoken of any media.
