In the video game Star Wars: The Old Republic, gamers are able to engage in same-sex relationships. Of course, as expected, right-wing groups like the American Decency Association and the Florida Family Association have taken issue with that, accusing the game’s creator with “pandering to homosexual extremists,” and suggesting that perhaps a transgender version of Darth Vader might be on the horizon. “There were no LGBT characters in any of the Star Wars movies,” officials note. “So if BioWare, the maker of Star Wars video games, adds LGBT characters for kids to select as their action figure, it could be something like Darth RuPaula, a combination of Darth Vader, one of the most popular Star Wars characters, and RuPaul, the renown transgender cross dresser.” Fingers crossed. Oh, and, kids, RuPaul is not transgendered. (via HuffPo; t/y Ed)
