Westboro Baptist Church Has Some Questions for GaymerX

It’s been a while since there’s been much talk about GaymerX (formerly Gaymercon). The first ever LGBT-centric video game convention taking place in San Francisco this August was mired in controversy from the onset. Many in the industry were supportive, but others questioned the necessity of such an event. “Doesn’t this encourage more segregation?” “There isn’t a straight gamer con, so why do we need this?” and other such riveting questions were asked. Even gaymers were some of the event’s early detractors. But the answer to the biggest question, “Do we need LGBT video game convention?”, seemed to come on its own when the Gaymercon Kickstarter ovwehelmingly reached nearly four times its original goal.

And then the circus of craziness known as the Westboro Baptist Church showed up and completely validated this event in one fell swoop by simply commenting on it.

I personally love the idea that Master Chief walks around in a pink bathrobe (with the armor still on of course).

If you still have any questions about Master Chief’s leisurely wardrobe choices, GaymerX itself, or the event’s companion site GaymerConnect then be sure to go and check out their official website. And if you haven’t already bought your tickets for GaymerX, August 3-4th 2013 in San Francisco, then be sure to do so. They won’t last long!

If you use the code ‘gaygamer‘ when buying your ticket you get $5 off! Don’t say we never did anything for you.

    Oh Westboro Baptist…

    Personally, i’m looking forward to the day Fred Phelps takes off his mask, and we discover that he was Andy Kaufman all along.
