The New Game Of Life Online - Gay Friendly

The Game Of Life - Gay Or Straight? There is a new version of The Game Of Life Online Game that allows players to pick same sex persons as their spouse. Christian groups are upset. Parents are upset because the game is obviously causing children to ask questions. Some people have gone so far as to say The Game Of Life Online Game is promoting the 'homosexual agenda'. Others have said it is meant to teach tolerance. I for one believe it is important to answer those questions in an age appropriate and loving way. You never know if your child will grow up to be gay, lesbian and transgendered.

I haven't personally played the game, but I tend to doubt that the game includes the realities of our times. For starters, it allows any same sex couples to marry. In real life we can do that in very few places. I'm sure it doesn't address discrimination, gay bashing and homophobia.

I do however applaud any effort to incorporate tolerance and inclusiveness in activities for children.
