Did Nintendo Just Come Out AGAINST Same-Sex Marriage?! Find Out What Game Developers Did To Piss Off LGBT Advocates HERE!

| Filed under: ShaqGameGIFs

nintendo tomodachi life game developers reject fan pleas for same sex marriage option

Have you heard of Tomodachi Life?

It's a Sim Life-esque Nintendo game with an inexplicable Shaquille O'Neal fetish, and it might be sending out a super shi** message to society!

See, players of the game are encouraged to create characters who engage in all sorts of real life endeavors, including intra-personal relationships and even marriage.

Unfortunately, marriage in Tomodachi Life, as it is in 33 states in this union, can only occur between a man and a woman.

Fans of the game have amazing hearts, though. They recently started a "#Miiequality” campaign and petitioned developers to create an update which would allow for same-sex unions, but the game makers sadly aren't having it. They're rejecting the notion on the bogus grounds that they “never intended to make any form of social commentary.”

Well, guess what, Nintendo? Your lack of social commentary is commentary in and of itself.

You're on the wrong side of history here. Plus, wouldn't it be awesome to see virtual Shaq marry another dude?

Shame on you, Nintendo!!

    Seriously, I'm getting sick of the LGBT playing CONSTANTLY the victim! I get it, you don't choose who you love and I'm all for gays and everything… BUT you GOTTA ADMIT that it is NOT NATURAL! There's a reason two sexes exist.. PROCREATION!! which cannot be done by same sex couple… and you gotta accept that! I think that children should not be exposed to same sex love games because its just unnecessary! If the kid is gay, he'll figure it out! No need for dumb games to let them know that it can happen……….. EVERYBODY NEEDS TO TAKE A CHILL PILL AND FUCKING LIVE AND LET LIVE!! YOU ARE GAY? GREAT FOR YOU! YOU'RE NOT? JUST AS GREAT! BOTTOM LINE, EVERYBODY KNOWS THEIR SEXUAL ORIENTATION WHEN THEY KNOW IT! AND IT'S NOT BY HAVING GAY GAMES THAT IT'S GONNA CHANGE ANYTHING!!!! IF ANYTHING, ITS GONNA CONFUSE LITTLE KIDS!!! STOP YOUR BULLSHIT AND CARRY ON WITH YOUR LIFE!

    Re: kendra – they aren't happy unless they can insinuate themselves in every corner of our children's lives. They want to make sure to get them 'born this way.'

    Its a Video Game meant for kids of course they dont want to take or do they even need to make a social stance. I dont see this site posting anything about muppets or any other Jim Hensen creation because they dont have a sexual orientation and the only relationship you see is Miss Piggy and Kermit. Once again its a kids game

    Dude, enough already. It's such a fucking distraction to more important things like genocide.

    You people are disgusting. Of course every kind of marriage should be represented in kid's games - guess what, kids are being raised by many different kinds of parents! Maybe there should be an option to stay single but still have children, as well. I play Campus Life, and am disturbed that there aren't any gay characters in the game. Excluding other lifestyles for children is what makes them seem not normal. WHICH THEY ARE. Just because you're still living in ignorance doesn't mean that the majority is. I agree that by games leaving out other lifestyles, they're painting a picture that a heterosexual married couple is the status quo, and that's confusing for children that do not live in that kind of household.

    Re: whutwhut – totally agree with you. it's about showing all the colors in the crayon box that is how people learn not to "give a shit" when it no longer is taboo to even note. I see some commentators getting all pissed off and rude on here about how this is a child's game followd by nasty comments about gays. Little do they realize that "gamers" come in ALL ages…that show's me a lot about the commentator.

    Equality is important on all fronts but there has been way to much focus on the homosexual community, to a point where its getting kind of old. I would LOVE for same sex marriage to become legal across all fronts but the reality is its not yet, there is a huge majority that doesn't find it appropriate for a child and they're kind of right. This is children, never in the history of children's entertainment has anyone led a pro homosexual movement, which I don't agree with at all, but through all kids media why only attack this one game? That's like asking mickey mouse clubhouse to start a homosexual relationship between Donald duck and goofy for the sake of pride. The game creators haven't made an attack on the community, they haven't called anyone names or have been protesting gay life, they just wanted to be non political and simplify the idea of a relationship because let's face it id like my child to avoid any relationship straight or gay for as long as possible. Some things are better left unpolitical for children. Feminism and racism is a major issue yet they sure as hell aren't going to involve those issues in the game. Its time to pick and choose our battles here people and this game isnt worth the trouble. Westboro baptist church demise, yes, petty half passed Nintendo game, no.

    I think it's stupid of you to voice YOUR opinion in such a manner. They do what they want and how THEY see their game succeeding, so if people from LGBT community isn't going to buy their game do you honestly think they are gonna care? Not at all.



  17. 17

    Seriously not EVRYTHIGN is about being gay!!! I am so sick of this attitude. I am at the point now of being anti-gay where I used to be in favor of gay rights. All I hear is whine whine whine… I'm GAY, I'm GAY….!!!!! Boo hooo hoo….. STFU! DO you not realize your attitudes are turning people against you????

    To be honest, I feel like the only reason the game just allows a marriage between a man and a woman is to, you know, have a baby. I know I play a lot of Harvest Moon and that's what happens. You pick a lady and have a baby. I really see this as a non-issue. I don't think they're teaching children anything wrong. It's not up to a VIDEO GAME to teach a children about equality, the parents should.

    (I should have pointed out I've never played this game, and frankly I'm not sure if procreation is part of this game. It's just my thoughts and opinions as to why Nintendo made the game this way. Also I AM bisexual)



  20. 20

    i don't think it's a stand against anything. i'm pretty sure it's just because marriage in the game is to have babies and without things like sperm donors and surrogates or adoption which aren't built into the game you need a man and a woman have a baby. i honestly don't think it's anything more than that.

    Re: kendra – youre a fucking idiot that obviously doesnt know the definition of the word natural.

  22. y'allneedjesus says – reply to this

    this is not discrimination! and before you call something discrimination, learn the definition of the word first. They might be against gays and they have EVERY SINGLE RIGHT TO DENY SAME SEX MARRIAGE IN THEIR OWN GAME THAT THEY CREATED. Stop crying about people being against gays. Everyone has their opinion and you have no right to tell them that they are stupid for doing this.

    Re: IzzyLizzy – just for saying that, you just proved how idiotic you are. they have every right to do what they did.
