No really.

I am not making this up.

Translators recently uncovered the male support path for a Fates character that's a very open lesbian that is as close to being date rape as a Nintendo game can possibly get. The just is that the incredibly open lesbian who hits on or harasses most every female character in the game gets drugged by the main character so she sees men only as girls, then falls in love with the main character after he FUCKING DRUGS HER.

Oh, and you can't romance her as a girl.

Oh, and she sees her homosexuality as a weakness.

Oh, and some translators think she may be bisexual, which somehow makes drugging a bisexual who clearly prefers women over men to think a man is a woman is justifiable and not BORDERLINE DATE RAPE.

So yeah, fuck Fire Emblem Fates. I know one character who is going to get massive rewrites come western release. Best case scenario I can see, sadly, is just erasing her canon sexuality.

It's a Japanese game, this is common ground for them. They're not massive cry babies.

Trust me on this, you will get nowhere arguing with this man. We have a history.

I just do it to you because it's funny. :^)

If you want my actual opinion, sure it's fucked up, but it really is just a game, made by the Japanese. You know this is exactly something they would do, so I don't know why you're surprised.

I'd read the full story about this once, I'm gonna have to see if I can find it again. Basically, no, that's not what's happening.

I mean, when has the Japanese cared about what Westerners think about their social policies or what they put in games?

Yeah, the Japanese give no fucks, and in regards to this specific case nor should anyone else.
