Most intelligent and rational individuals don't care about such things that have no effect on them personally. However, when people have a very in-your-face attitude about needing to be special because they are "different", it's annoying whatever the reason for it is. Bragging about it to people who could not care less invites harassment on themselves. Too busy flamboyantly shoving it in people's faces to even realize, and then they blame others for becoming tired of it and expressing their opinion.

    Not to mention this game and forum take place on the internet, where someone's gender is largely irrelevent let alone what gender they like to get freaky with.

    Being able to have an LGBT SYN is a wonderful idea. Gay Gamers exist and are a part of a global community and have gaming events like Gay Laxicon, Gamerx etc. Being able to join a group with individuals with similar interests without the fear of harassment is a great idea. Gamers need their community as well (ex. Bronies, LGBT, Old Players, Young Players, and more).

    I think I will create a syndicate for straight white males over 40 with incomes over 50K for the proud straight guys.

    I would like to say a big thank you to all the players that have helped set up this syndicate so far.

    A big shout out to

    And last but not least HTC Blue and ZC you have been amazing in providing the support with cash and brick donations to make this possible.

    So one type of personality can create a syndicate and request not to be harrassed but not anyone else right?

    Oh everyone's free to request an end to harassment... why does this syndicate seem to be attracting it, though? Live and let live, folks. It's the net.

    Just to be clear, is this a syndicate that will be discriminating applicants based on sexual orientation?

    Everybody is welcome in this syndicate provided they do not discriminate or harass our members in the chat rooms.

    There has been a lot of interest from HTC Blue and I can't thank them enough.

    Well said, as this applies to race as well.

    Some of the responses in this thread have been extremely heteronormative and Eurocentric. Check your privilege, people.
