Remove LGBT Censorship in In-Game chat
Ok, so... I know that way back in the day, before people started being decent and tolerable folks, would use words like 'gay' and 'lesbian' or such things as a go to insult to describe a thing or person they didn't like which is obviously wrong and stupid... so the words were censored and you can't use them in game. (...At least I'm hoping that's why the words were taken out and not that someone at Nexon was homophobic and took the words out as soon as they realized they could, but I trust y'all to be better than that, right?)
I'm suggesting the ban be removed because there's no reason to have such a ban in place, especially with the sort of world we live in today. Heck, I'm surprised that when I came back to this game, gay marriage wasn't a thing. Talk about disappointing. Additionally, they are words that people use to express an identity, and I've been in and witnessed many situations (on other communities) where people who realized that they were both part of the LGBT+ community would bond over that and discuss those experiences together... and it's much easier to do that sort of thing when you dont have to watch your spelling to make sure you don't get asterisked and risk misunderstandings.
I was partially inspired to make this suggesting since another thread was made requesting to remove certain gender related things, at some point someone brought up they'd like an implementation for gay marriage... at which point I remembered that you can't even talk about that sort of thing in game without going out of your way to avoid the censorship. So I know this sort of thing wouldn't be high on the priority list, but just something I'd like to be acknowledged. And an answer from someone on the possibility.
