Please don't misrepresent the author.

Nowhere in that article did he say that slavery or genocide was evil

Wouldn't it be more fair to link the article to let people read it, instead of just posting a sensationalist headline, his entire quote may give more context or it may confirm your opinion, but you should let people decide that by posting the article.

The article is as focused on "diversity" as the title implies. It praises the game for "not batting an eye at interracial and interspecies relationships", and criticizes it because the combat too often devolves into colonialists (you) shooting natives

I don't give bad journalism web hits. If you're that interested you'll find the article on your own.

TC is taking the clickbait title out of context because he is a trash tier troll read the f***ing article and you will realize TC is full of s***


The article is literally about how xenophobic some of the characters are and how they are acting like diversity will be the end of days and comparing it to current events

All of the Mass Effect games tell an evolving story about people with wide ranging appearances, backgrounds, and beliefs finding ways not just to peacefully coexist, but to help and improve each other. They also speculate that, centuries from now, much of the work our society is doing today will be done. Few characters bat an eye at the idea of interracial %u2013 even interspecies %u2013 dating, and concerns about sexual orientation are a thing of the past. In Andromeda I even encountered a transgender woman (perhaps the first I%u2019ve seen in a truly mainstream game) who was fully accepted as a valuable member of her community and team. These games provide a progressive and optimistic vision of a future civilization that would have made Gene Roddenberry proud.

The notion of diversity is, in fact, so important to Andromeda that its conceptual opposite %u2013 a kind of literal assimilation %u2013 is (without getting into any spoiler-y details) the greatest threat the Milky Way immigrants encounter in their new home.

And the xenophobic members of the local species serve as a topical metaphor for current events in our own world. We%u2019re placed in the shoes of someone who has arrived on a new shore with nowhere else to go and no real possibility of going back. Everyone needs to figure out how to get along without killing each other, and it%u2019s not easy.

Diversity is evil and it's sad you can't realize. SJWs are blind to truth.

They aren't liberals TC. They're just as fanatic as any religious extremist.
