Honestly, I kind of want them to make Zarya canonically straight. People assuming she has to be a lesbian because she's a muscular woman is shallowness that's sort of just begging to be smothered.

I mean, if she too were LGBT I wouldn't complain, but I'm always for blasting expectations like that.

Stereotypes do exist, but they can be and often are over indulged in.

She's not "definitely" anything unless they outright say it.

I mean whatever they decide is up to them (or just not touch it at all), but I do think there's a certain value in reminding people that while stereotypes do exist, sometimes we need to be reminded that they are essentially not the greatest or smartest thing to do.

Plus it's not like there's any shortage of stereotypes within LGBT anything worth challenging.

Stereotypes are not inherently bad and it makes more sense to adhere to them for the sake of appealing to the majority with accurate representation. It really comes down to whether or not it's done in an offensive manner. Even if Zarya is a stereotype, is that bad? She's arguably the best tank in the game right now. They put a lot of work into her appearance and skins. I think the people that do fall into that stereotype would be happy to identify with her rather than be offended by it. Personally, I love it when I find a character that I can identify with based on personality/appearance.

Zarya can't be a lesbian because she's obviously in a relationship with Heavy Weapons Guy.

Tbh, I kind of want to see Zarya turn out to be gay just to see how Russia (which has an infamously homophobic government) reacts to their in-game representative being gay. A lesbian myself though, I can confirm that butch lesbian's are somewhat common, though they don't make up the majority of us, and I myself am not a fan. Not all butch girls are lesbian though, as I know several butch straight girls.
