I kinda want Janey Springs and Athena to play the role of a Claptrap someday in a new game if they make any more after the recent developments in TFTBDLS. I feel like Springs would be an awesome tutorial/starter character and she’d be there all the way.
“Don’t get me wrong I have nothing against the fact that Athena is lesbian, but I hate that she is coupled with Janey Springs. Springs to me isn’t a fitting character to be with Athena. I feel like its just shoved in there so people can say ‘Look its a gay couple in a video game’.”
“This will get me crucified, but I find the relationship between Athena and Janey to be really forced. I feel Borderlands 2 did gay and bisexual characters very well. Their sexuality was a part of them, out in the open, but did not define them; it felt natural. I feel the majority of Janey’s character revolved around her being a lesbian and they just tried way too hard to be progressive and fill the status quo the last game set as a precedent.”
“I hate how people hate on Janey Springs simply because she likes to mentions how she’s in to girls all the time. Honestly, I think she does it because she lost a partner in a horrific way. It could be her way of coping and she hasn’t found any other way. People do different things to recover from events and that’s hers.”
“I think people ignore or don’t realize Janey is supposedly a (or was once) a druggy. She said she does a lot of ‘Moon Dust’, whatever that is. I’m honestly surprised people are talking about other details when that’s kinda out there.”
