I fail to see any harm in this whatsoever. Whether people are gay or straight, whether they're confused or certain about themselves, they deserve to be treated equally. I don't see why this is an issue in games, nor should it be an issue in real life.

Echoing Bogva, I really hope this is available in Japan.
For 1000 yen a month I can listen to what I want, when I want, where I want? Sounds good to me.

Japanese people are often confused when using large numbers in English. There could be 100 million leaked accounts for all we know.

gay marriage was equally unthinkable 20-30 years ago.

To bigots, yes.
People are not saying animals should be role models, people are stating that homosexuality exists throughout the animal kingdom.
Bigots like to move the goalposts, and then when those arguments are shot down, they move them again.

@Kaimycahl Can you give me an example as to why a 7 year old would be out walking on roads at around 4am? I can't think of any genuine reason for it. The "This is the Japanese way" argument is very weak. I'm betting we could all ask our Japanese friends and families and they would say 7 year olds should not be out walking streets at 4am.

Can't say I found that video very funny. Seems to be a panic attack, which I don't find funny. Morons trolling on trains and then videoing and posting a woman close to a breakdown isn't funny to me.

Mike Sims-Williams - I never heard of that event, but it sounds like a good idea to me. Macabre topics are often difficult to talk about, but it doesn't mean we shouldn't discuss them.

If it's the result of untreated depression or mental illness then it's not cowardly, it's genuinely seeing no other way out.
If someone is trying to escape punishment or embarrassment because of their own cock-up then they need to stand up and face the music. Leaving a mess for others to clean up isn't in any way noble IMO.
Where the overlap between these two is though, I have no idea.

But the old duffers are doing such a great job..... Why allow in youth and fresh ideas from women??
