You guys have to hear about when I was playing Dragon Age Origins for the first time and I was 13 years old and I snuck out of bed at 4am on Saturday morning to go and play it in the living room. I got my headphones on, nobody in my family noticed and I was immersed in my new favourite game.
However, I got to the part where you go to the Pearl in Denerim and meet Isabela for the first time. If you guys have played DAO you know how good the sound engineering is so that if a voice is muffled by a wall, it echoes just like the voice is actually on the other side of a wall, and when you get to the pearl, you hear deep booming voices shouting ‘STOP PLAYING GAMES ISABELA’ and I SCREAMED at the top of my lungs because MY NAME IS ALSO ISABELA, and I had no idea Isabela was a character and I thought my dad had burst out of bed shouting and had caught me.
Long story short I woke up everyone in the house and they did not find this funny.
My daughter will have freedom of choice. She will be free to dance, to sing, to be educated in the fields that spark her passion, to marry if she wants, to marry WHO she wants, to remain single, or to fall in love with another woman. She’ll be able to wear what she wants, put on lipstick, and read books that spark debate and expand her mind. She will be loved, protected, respected, and celebrated.
