  • Homophobia is a big issue in this game.

    Every time you look up there’s a broadcast going “BLOCK=GAYYYYY”.

    Do you know how annoying this is?

    People in this game constantly use the word “gay” as if it’s something horrible that everyone should avoid. “Gay” has become a term that people use whenever they don’t like someone or something.

    The worst part is that the moderators do absolutely nothing about this. People are putting down an entire minority by shaming that word and the moderators do not care.

    But I broadcasted ONCE saying “What do you guys think about the Boycott Growtopia thing?” and I was called in my a moderator who said that other moderators may “take action” on my account if I broadcast about that.

    A moderator told me I could’ve been BANNED for asking people’s opinions on something, but when people keep using the word “gay” in broadcasts as if it’s a disease, nothing happens. Absolutely NOTHING.

    This is extremely annoying and is a huge issue that is being overlooked. Anyone else feel the same?

    Just because you hate minorities doesn’t mean you should be able to freely bash that minority in a god damn PIXEL GAME made for children. That’s bullshit, and I’m sick of it.

    If you’re one of those homophobic nutjobs, stay out of this thread and keep your minority-hating opinion to yourself, and out of this game.

    Something needs to be done about this.

      I swear to god, I don’t even know why the word “gay” is used as an insult. It just doesn’t make any sense. Either they’re saying I’m wrong for being happy or someone who who prefers the same gender more. “Gay” is like one of the weakest insults next to “noob.” Just ignore them. They’re still have time to learn that the word gay isn’t supposed to be an insult. This is coming from a lesbian. In the end, it’s a video game, I can be whatever I want.

      It would’ve said homephobia instead. It’s not the right time to be sarcastic about this.

          If the moderators don’t start doing something I’ll definitely be pissed. It’s always just fun and games until people really start to believe “gay” means something bad. That’s always how it starts.

          As Kanna said, it’s not the right time to be sarcastic about this. It’s also not the right time to post memes made by literal Nazis.

          That’s straight up nazi r/frenworld bullshit right there.

                  “Almost a problem, but not really.”

                  Imagine if someone was broadcasting “BLOCK=N****R”. Would you still say “Almost a problem, but not really”? Hell no, you’d think it was a problem.

                  Same concept - bashing a minority. Highly unacceptable.

                  I think the fact that you downplay this issue shows which side you’re on.

                            Don’t act as if “gay” isn’t being used as an insult in that scenario. Don’t even try to say that. You know damn well it’s not being used in a good way.

                            Good to know who’s homophobic on this thread. We don’t need you here.

                            You should look up “First they came for...”

                            And in this scenario,

                            “First they came for the LGBT community, and I did not speak out — Because I was not gay.”

                            In case you didn’t know, standing up for others that are getting harassed because of the way they were born and comforting them is a good thing. If this type of behavior is going to be ignored, it might as well be encouraged - because that’s what’s happening. People use “gay” as if it’s bad and the trend spreads.

                            You may not give a damn if you’re insulted based on the way you were born, but others do. Especially LGBT people, who have a higher rate of suicide than literally any group on the damn planet. Cyber bullying is not something that should be ignored in this scenario.

                            You’re not part of the LGBT community, so obviously, you would never understand that. Don’t speak unless you know what you’re speaking about.

                              Don't except a multiplayer game to be a disney game. Profanity and toxicity are always a problem for every multiplayer game. You either become one of it or ignore it.
