'i dont understand why its a problem when there are straight bi and gay love interests just play as w/e gender your ideal LI is interested in'
yeah ok i guess you could say its problematic when all LIs are bi, if you wanted to be wrong, ive heard it said that it makes? heterosexuality the default???? and being queer just an optional choice????????? ignoring the fact that being bi is IN FACT a queer sexuality lmao… being bi and being in a relationship thats between 2 diff genders doesnt mean that either of those 2 people are straight….
assuming that 2 diff genders in a relationship = straight and 2 similar genders = gay is Actually Positioning Heterosexuality As A Norm and Erasing Queer Identities and it also means youre queerphobic trash
and does it occur to people that maybe its hard for people to play as a character of a different gender? not that i’ll ever have the option to play as my own gender lmao nonbinary erasure. but it is. its difficult for me in a way that i think is related to being trans but idk how to articulate yet.
making all LIs bi/pan would be the best option imo because you could romance anyone regardless of yr characters gender and that doesnt mean yr character or the LI is straight or gay it just means its!!! thats who you wanna romance. you could headcanon yr character and the LIs as whatever sexuality you wanted and it would work! theres so much more freedom
but if you gotta limit LIs then please no straight people heterosexuality is a sin
