Mankirk's husband--why not?

Archipelago和Unrelated都在Lincoln Center Film Society刷了。一天之内刷的。中间还穿插了美国队挨揍,sigh……

变形金刚4在RottenTomatoes上达成了17%的叫好率。简直无语凝噎……就连Transcendence也有19%啊。



And, because Rob Pardo left Blizz today, I dug up this: How to include diversity without making it your focus by Matt Rossi via Joystiq.

...Now I'll say again -- I agree with focusing on fun gameplay over narrative. (This may sound strange from a dude who loves Warcraft lore.) But the focus on gameplay doesn't preclude making simple tweaks to include others at effectively no cost to you as a developer. How does one include gay characters, for example, in World of Warcraft? By including them as you would any other character, and making their being gay no more important than you would make their being straight. Your new quest giver, say, is an orc warrior - have him say that the Alliance dogs slew his mate, and later, have the players find said mate... and it's another orc male. That's right, I'm saying all that would be needed would be for us to find Mankrik's husband.

This costs practically nothing in terms of time or emphasis. The only reason not to do it is if you value the opinions of those who just can't accept a world where women can do things for themselves and/or that gay people exist. And by accepting those opinions, you value them over the opinions of those women and gay people (or any marginalized group).
