Yep. Gay people are bombarded by representations of straight love on a near constant basis, and we have no choice but to accept it as normal. I don't think the occasional gay character in a video game will cause you that much emotional trauma. Maybe if you are exposed to it more often, it will stop feeling so uncomfortable to you (much like the desensitization toward violence you just pointed out, which I would think is far more disturbing).

And once again… Gaider was talking about gay portrayals in video games because it was taking place at a GAY EVENT.
