The Homodachi Tale: GLAAD Vs. Nintendo

By LUDWIG VON KOOPA - The gay mafia murder machine went after Nintendo.

KoopaTV has spent the past... well it's been nearly two weeks since our last article on Tomodachi Life and the gay agenda's assault on Nintendo, trolling these #Miiquality people on Twitter. Oh, uh, we've been doing other things too. Like all the articles we've written in May. Including an important phone interview. I think we gave Twitter the wrong impression that all we do as an organization is piss off gay people, which is completely inaccurate. Check out KoopaTV in general, man. We're a legitimate site covering all sorts of stuff.

Anyway, with that said, Tyeforce seemingly took our advice. He didn't let that YouTube takedown stop him. Oh no, he went to the Associated Press and got every outlet out there to cover Tomodachi Life. Now if you try to do a web search to figure out information about the game, all you get is this "Miiquality" shit with clickbait titles about how Nintendo "bans gay marriage". All I want to do is find information about the game and it's been completely demonized!

At first, Nintendo said:
"Nintendo never intended to make any form of social commentary with the launch of Tomodachi Life. The relationship options in the game represent a playful alternate world rather than a real-life simulation. We hope that all of our fans will see that Tomodachi Life was intended to be a whimsical and quirky game, and that we were absolutely not trying to provide social commentary. We have heard and thoughtfully considered all the responses. We will continue to listen and think about the feedback. We're using this as an opportunity to better understand our consumers and their expectations of us at all levels of the organization."
Now they said, as of today, on their own site as a press release,
"We apologize for disappointing many people by failing to include same-sex relationships in Tomodachi Life. Unfortunately, it is not possible for us to change this game’s design, and such a significant development change can’t be accomplished with a post-ship patch. At Nintendo, dedication has always meant going beyond the games to promote a sense of community, and to share a spirit of fun and joy. We are committed to advancing our longtime company values of fun and entertainment for everyone. We pledge that if we create a next installment in the Tomodachi series, we will strive to design a game-play experience from the ground up that is more inclusive, and better represents all players."

KoopaTV has had viable campaigns for a while, but did they pick up traction? No, because we don't have access to the grievance industry. Imagine if EA had to fess up for their murder of Elizabeth Brett and thousands of articles were written about the "Madden Curse" movie coverup. It's like the next Benghazi. Anyway, people literally exist as their job to try to ruin tradition and supporters of traditional marriage and family values, and serve as connections to the media to anyone with the next cause to whine about. It's like the political machines of the early 20th century.

When Nintendo said "Your Drama", they didn't mean like this.

Here's a particularly egregious example. A guy the BBC put in a broadcast literally said at around 47:50 of this link,
"Tomodachi Life is eerily similar to that of Uganda where half a million people live under the threat  of imprisonment, and torture, and execution. Or Brunei, where they just passed a law for gay and lesbian people to be stoned."
Like, this guy literally said this. It's patently absurd. So absurd I chose to preserve it in a dedicated video. You can click that to have the voice recording of the above quote. As in, someone actually made that comparison, which is more wild than any comparison KoopaTV has ever made. I feel outdone, quite frankly.

GLAAD is now on Nintendo's case. That's never good. They bully people all the time. They're like the Al Sharpton of the gay movement. You can look it up if you want. Maybe start here.

These people were bitching that Nintendo cannot be "neutral" on gay relationships unless all relationships were eliminated. For all their claims that gender is not binary and that sexual orientation is a continuum, the gay movement is sure black-and-white on picking sides! Now Nintendo is equated to the Westboro Baptist Church! KoopaTV is, too. We can take it though. We knew what we were getting into when we chose to fight against the gay fascists. All they have are lies, bullying, and appeals to emotion. Nintendo is just grouped as the nebulous enemy along with Christians around the world, along with other people that just have the natural revulsion people have when seeing gay sexual acts. Let's be clear: If you think this is a settled debate, then you're living in a libertine bubble.

This image returns. Seriously, what is going on here?

Since I mentioned EA earlier, the gay fascists have been comparing Tomodachi Life to The Sims and how EA's game allows gay relationships and Nintendo's doesn't. Heteronormativity is the reality of life. THAT'S the neutral position. You can (accurately, I suppose) claim it's the 21st Century all you want, but do you really want your model of a good Century to be one that started with George W. Bush? Anyway, just because heteronormativity is a thing, that does not mean that you should bully abnormal people or shun them. That's a terrible reason for doing something, just because someone is "weird". However, for decades, the gay movement has been "progressing" our sense of reality by indoctrinating our children in schools and bullying all dissent. To them, everyone who believes that homosexual acts are an abomination — or if you're Nintendo, then too naughty for a playful alternate world — are the weird people. And as you can see here and in other articles, the gay movement bullies them. There are many of these people. They're the silent majority. They don't care what you do in your bedroom, but they don't want things shoved down their throats.

Let's be clear, again: Exclusion is not hatred. As it stands, homosexual marriage isn't even legal in Japan. But even if it was, not including that in this game is not "bigotry". It's only with the advent of "gay pride" where people portray it as an equal lifestyle that demands separate-but-equal treatment in every form of media imaginable. The only reason this is happening is because this movement is incredibly dedicated, as opposed to the lazy bestiality movement or polygamy movement. Speaking of which, the same so-called "progressives" who are advocating for "Miiquality" were making fun of Mitt Romney for his Mormon religion and their history of polygamy. (Let's forget that Obama has polygamist ties too?) Nintendo could be more progressive than the progressives and include all manner of "alternate lifestyles" in the game, but that becomes more and more complicated as you go on. But in a few years, we'll start seeing gaming companies include things like gluten-free diets, nudists, the Amish, and sanguinarians into every game. Because some group will bitch about not being included. Just because you can't suck the blood of your companion Mii in Tomodachi Life and you believe that's the only way you can express your love doesn't mean Nintendo is making social commentary on vampires. There's a reason why Nintendo says it isn't a real-life simulator.

This is from a decent Gamasutra article on the matter. This also never happened in MY life. So not a simulation!

Let's look at Nintendo's statement from today. The thing that pops out is, "We pledge that if we create a next installment in the Tomodachi series, we will strive to design a game-play experience from the ground up that is more inclusive, and better represents all players." You see that? "If we create". The game has sold millions in Japan, which is a lot more accepting of a homogeneous world setting than you entitled Westerners, apparently. You're all heterophobic or something. This is what's wrong with America now. Thanks to the liberals, we're all playing identity politics. Everyone puts themselves into a group, and that group demands equal representation. It's like race-baiting, but for every category imaginable. Speaking of race, the Miiquality founder Tye Marini has this to say:

"As for Miiquality, I plan to continue to use the social networks and whatnot to bring attention to Tomodachi Life, in hopes of getting more people to purchase the game. The more successful this game is, the more likely we are to see a more inclusive sequel in the future."
However, many of his supporters are calling for a boycott of the game. And of Nintendo entirely. It's like the disparity between Martin Luther King Jr. and Malcolm X. But that's what you get when you feed into the fascist gay media machine.

So what happens now? Nintendo releases the game as-is, and many won't buy it. Even people who don't care about the fight for gay marriage to be shoved down our throats in every media imaginable are only going to see negative press when they try to search information about the game. It's scorched earth tactics. They'll be like, "Well I'll be judged as a bigot if people see me playing this game!"

What if Nintendo went full-on EA, as the uber-progressive company many people are praising EA for? Progressives are literally heralding EA as one of the best companies even though they're one of the worst. So what if Nintendo released some DLC to take care of this? Contrary to some belief, inserting gay marriage into Tomodachi Life would not be a one line of code, unless the code to Tomodachi Life is unreadable to humans and is all on one line. So the DLC would be paid. Say, $15 for gay marriage. Except, it would be ran on the cloud on Nintendo's server. You would always have to be online in able to actually use this patch. Sound good? EA is pandering to the progressives just to cover up their terrible practices.

“We're horrible people, BUT we're good with the gays!”
Though, I guess you could make a similar statement about KoopaTV?

This article has gone more than long enough. You can't demonize Nintendo based on them not doing this. It's absolutely standard to believe that marriage is between a man and a woman. We hope Nintendo will do the right thing and not force homosexuality down the throats of gamers in the future based on this incident. It can be a bit... traumatizing, we know. But hey, Phil Robertson and Duck Dynasty are still getting high ratings! Believe me, no matter how hard the liberals try, the mass market is still people who value family values and don't want everything in videogames politicized. (That's why KoopaTV isn't a mass-market publication.)

You got objections? That's for the comments section. I'm done.

Ludwig is an avid Nintendo gamer, a conservative, a Jew, straight, old, white, and male. Where is his representation?! You can Follow him on Miiverse at NNID PrinceOfKoopas, where he maintains the "playful alternate world" of being "whimsical and quirky" without making social commentaries, as per the Code of Conduct. Then he gets banned anyway, but that's besides the point.


Now it's on more airwaves, including one John Oliver.
The outrageous Uganda comment made Ludwig demand an apology from those who said it. Here's their response.
GLAAD tries to censor more things. We oppose them.
GLAAD adherents oppose the freedom to make heavily offensive videogames.
It turns out that GLAAD may win in the end with Fire Emblem Fates.
#Miiquality was one step in many to get to the gay agenda's ultimate goal. (And it's not equal rights.)

  1. One thing I don't understand is this. Why do they need to have these games that other developers made with their own vision be more inclusive? Why not make one their own? They're truly serious about their ideals then build their own video game company and write a game that fits their own vision instead of getting others to do it for them.

    1. I mean, that's hard to do, making your own company. That takes years of effort, you know?

      The reason they want to change developers' own vision is control of the culture. This may (possibly) have started as an effort for "I want marriage equality", but it, like many movements, has been taken over by more nefarious agenda-setters who see it as yet another battle against traditional values in a long line of battles made to stay relevant in public attention.

      I've seen them respond to "Well EA has plenty of games with your ideals" with basically them wanting more than that.

      I guess it's a wedge issue for them that, well, basically the consumer-company relationship version of you saying you won't be friends with someone unless they agree with you on everything. But they don't *want* to not be friends with Nintendo, because Nintendo is pretty likable and makes great stuff. So it's a rough way of saying, "Nintendo, get with the times maaaan. What are you doinnnggg?"

      I saw a similar reaction to when a NeoGAF guy was amazed that there could be conservative Nintendo fans to begin with. "You don't REALLY think like that, right? How is that possible?"

    2. And thank you for your response to my comment. I love Nintendo and enjoy their games a lot. And for a while I thought Nintendo won't be subjected to this kind of tactic since they're Nintendo, after all. I guess they'll just target anybody even if you try to stay out of their way.

    3. I didn't think Nintendo would be subjected to this kind of thing because, uh, well, not only is it because "they're Nintendo" (the activists claim that Nintendo should not be immune to pressure just because they're Nintendo), but contrary to what KoopaTV does on a day-to-day basis, they actually DO avoid political conflicts entirely.

      Like, we politicize our commentary for fun, not because there are actual politics involved. We didn't think that would change.

      Apparently they have a grudge against Nintendo for "human rights abuses" for a while, including the whole conflict mineral thing which we wrote about here: http://koopatv.blogspot.com/2013/07/slavery-is-not-game-game.html

      But we were very light-hearted about it, despite THOSE sets of activists apparently having hundreds of thousands of people strong.

  2. I'm not really a fan of these types of games, but I may purchase a copy to support Nintendo. However, I have a feeling that the next game will include same sex relationships, whether the western release sells well or not. I'm just disappointed that so many in the video game community are pandering to homosexual activists. The people who are bashing Nintendo should just play Skyrim. Every npc that you can marry in the game is bisexual.

    1. On one hand, I don't want to tell people to NOT support Nintendo. Nintendo could be in a lot better financial shape, and I want them in that better shape.

      On the other hand, these people are bullies and dangerous to have as your consumer base since their loyalty is entirely dependent on a single-issue.

      (In politics, everyone finds single-issue voters difficult to deal with.)

      Buying the game just because of politics is silly to me, although you could word it this way: Is it worth $40 or whatever it costs to have access to the Club Nintendo survey for it, which according to Miyamoto (at least for Sticker Star) they pay attention to?

      You can bet the activists are going to flood those surveys about this issue. They're apparently more activist than actual gamer, so they see it as an investment in activism, not for game-fun. (Since apparently games aren't fun if they don't portray your sexual orientation.)

      One of the reasons they're pandering to the activists is because a lot in the videogame community are close to those in the tech industry. Silicon Valley is notorious for being pro-homosexual, which is how they so easily got rid of Brendan Eich despite the rest of California supporting the guy.

  3. You have to see the humor in it--watch the announcement video for Tamodachi Life again, and then try to figure out where people got the notion that it's supposed to emulate real life.

      Pretty heteronormative quote there, eh? (And exclusionary of straight females!)
