They're called games, right? Not political-statement-facilitators.
Ok ok, so someone is gay or whatever and wants to take his own personal experience with that and make entire games around it.
To me, sexuality as a topic is trivial and your preference is incidental and boring. I don't give a shit about what you like to do with your body - just as long as you don't hurt anyone in the process.
But keep all that crap out of your game if you expect me to enjoy it. It's not interesting enough to warrant this level of attention.
When you create a character - make sure his or her sexuality and preferences are kept in the background - unless it's an essential part of his or her role in the story. Most people don't carry around signs that say what they want to fuck.
Learn from that.
If this is about acceptance and tolerance - then the best way to talk about our differences is not to.
