Gender based relationships - No ****?

This has probably been mentioned before, and in that case, I apologize for taking up unnecessary space on the forums.

Anyway, I'm gonna go straight forward with this. I play a female Sith Warrior, haven't reached max level yet. But I've got all my companions but one. Obviously, everyone has their favorite companions. The companion you like the most, is probably based most upon utility and/or effect.
I'm almost sure I'm not the only one, but I like to choose my favorite companion, from their personality, of course their usability is of importance too, but that's not the point of this post.
I've grown fond of my companion, Jaesa Wilsaam's personality, and the way my storyline is connected to her, being her "master" and all that. But since I'm a female, I'm not able to establish a relationship with her, as I would be able to with Lieutenant Pierce or Malavai Quinn. Perhaps I'm too much of a roleplayer, but I rest my case.

TLR : SWTOR, Y U NO allow relationships to whatever gender we feel like?

I have no problem with same sex relationships so... yeah... I don't care if bioware adds this or not. As of now I just roll a male anyway. *shrugs*

Yeah, thats a real issue? I play a male Sith Sorcerrer and for some reason i am penalized in my options to romance my favorite companion - Khem Val! Let alone, i have no option to romance a battle droid on my Trooper, at all! Its outrageous!

If you were really a roleplayer and liked Jaesa's personality, you would respect her sexual preferences and stop trying to force yourself on her. She's just not that into you. Sorry.

You know she's straight? She should be bi! :O

Either way same sex relations are coming eventually.

I love the way oppression, suppression, and persecution of the GLBT isn't political or hate-based. But the GLBT community wanting to be acknowledged and accepted is just political extremism or perversion.

No one can explain why romancing a video game character is perverse if it's the same sex, but not perverse if it's straight. Seriously. Think about what you're saying. If you're a male character and you find your female npc pretend-attractive, and you pursue a video game relationship with her, is that not for the purpose of your own titilation/amusement?

a straight man might find a female-female relationship titilating. A straight man would also find a male-female relationship titilating. Why is only one of these things perverse?

GET OVER IT.
