This is just an advisory that the homophobic activist Orson Scott Card is involved in Firefall.  He is writing a manga for the game.

You can read about his activities here.

how are his personal views on homosexuals relevant to the development of the game exactly ? Is the game about homosexuals ? if not then it's not relevant.

My personal view is that traditional marriage should  be between a man and a woman creating security for their future children.  Legal civil partherships work well for the lbgt community as it protects their individual rights in law as "partners" should anything happen.

The real issue is the increased rate and easiness of divorce when children are involved.  I don't ever really see anyone championing that cause.  Its all about we want/contest rights most of the time, regardless of the divorce down the road.

Im surprised they are banning those words lol!
