Well people have opinions.. if they make you feel nauseous, you maybe need to have a doctor check you out. There could be a real problem there.
In the interest of civility on these boards, I have to point out that this is not cool. You should consider that my feeling nauseous might POSSIBLY have been because of what was implied in certain posts, which I did point out in my post, and not just conclude that I have a mental sickness that needs treatment.
You should have actually countered the point I made -- that the first inclusion of a transgender character is viewed as "forced" when the inclusion of heterosexual characters is not -- instead of dismissed everything I said because I was being emotional.
It's perfectly normal and fine to get emotional about social topics such as this one, on both sides, so long as we try to maintain some civility. To pretend otherwise would be to not be completely honest.
Feeling nauseous over people's opinions is usually not normal. There was nothing wrong with any opinions on either side of the discussion. But you had to go the "it makes me feel nauseous' route.
I apologize if I made you feel even worse. But the hypocritical stuff pisses me off, and as a paying customer I am allowed to post my opinion. More to the point, I was even told by someone on your side of the discussion that if a person has a right to say something, he has a right to confront it. Well guess what? So do I.
You may not think it feels forced. That is your right. But to others it does. That is our right. It didn't seem to me like it was an organic, natural background... and other than the actually switching gender, which was glossed over... wasn't even very unique.. And was a bit boring. It felt like it was thrown in there for one reason...
I would have had less issues if it had been done right. Just as I have had no issues with any other LGBT characters Paizo has done.
