Pretty sure they are more referring to -what- people are being harrassed for. Straight people don't usually get harrassed for being straight. Or end up beaten up or murdered over it. It's not really a common thing.

Then maybe I should start a christian guild? We get killed over being what we are right?

People should join these lgbt guilds because people get beaten up or murdered in real life? You serious bro?

You people are funny.

The whole point of like minded guilds is to find and play with like minded people. Well to me that is what guilds are for, they are for people of like mind or like interest.

So if it's not anything to do with real life murder and only like mindedness than a hetero guild would be good just for like mindedness right?

There are lots of Christian guilds out there, actually!

And no, people don't join them for that reason, they join them because they're fun. Not sure why you have such a problem with it. Let people join whatever guild they want and enjoy the game.

So as long as they try and act like they need their own guilds instead of searching through the 100s that already exist with no jerks like everyone else does everyone else will keep the little "hey they are different" in their minds and just keep being mean to them!
It's ok to be different. We're never going to get to a point in society where we are all identical in every way. Treating each other with equality and respect despite our differences is what is important, not pretending that we're all the same.

In the case of creating guilds, we have a lot of options for a reason. Not all gay people actually want to be in a LGBT guild. Not all Christians want to be in a Christian guild. Not all older people want to be in a "mature" guild. But there's no point in getting upset over their existence. You will probably never see any of them in game.

Oh I have no problem, people do and will as they want. Im pretty liberal in life. Was just interested why some guilds focus over LGBT. National guilds on Europan servers are kind of understandable. Guilds focused around sexual preferences? Thats sort of odd for me.

Each to his own. I think.

It's more about having spaces that are inherently queer friendly. Not everyone has, nor should be expected to, the mental fortitude to go through scores of guilds to find the one where they won't be subjected to harassment, homophobic language, or just general crappy attitudes. That's why a lot of guilds describe themselves as "friendly", it means that you should be less likely to encounter general arse-hattery in those places, however that doesn't necessarily mean that those places are queer friendly, or will support queer interests in the face of "but he wasn't being mean/homophobic at you".

(Before you bring up "but why aren't there 'women only guilds'?" that's whole different kettle of fish.)

on WoW i saw a woman only guild
i know of pvp guilds, raiding , rp, pve and such
others i found family, casual, christian(or other faith guilds)

but i understand why people question the need for LBGT guilds..

reson is this is a video game your sexual prefference or sex of actual player should never be brought into a game world. most come here to escape such things... that is why peopke MIGHT. have a problem cause even the christain guilds are fairly quite.

most forums about said guild always has because how in treated .. well dont tell anyone. im a 46yr male but if i never go onto a voice chat server youll never know that im really male. your sex and or perfrence has nothing to do with the game itself.

the christain guilds btw are more about clearer language than talking about religon. i was in onend near had a conversation about that.

as i stated before most of tge cries from someone in a guild like that or looking for one is because they bring their preferrence out in the open. to me that is private and oersonal and dont need to hear about it or care about it.

i goto MMO's to play a game find a fun guild chat with them and thats it... they dont need my life story.

i am a (@@@@@@@@@@) player btw .. yeah its my business what i am no one elses.

And some people are very open about their life and don't want to be attacked for it. So, LGBT friendly guilds, women friendly guilds etc.
