While I generally agree with the premise that minority representation for appeasement or brownie points rather than quality is a bad move, whether on a professional or entertainment level, Borderlands is hard to fault. Even if the series is trying to be progressive with a social agenda, the world is so ludicrous it’s absurd to parallel it with reality.
Everything in Borderlands is taken to the maximum: guns, explosions, blood, screaming, psychos, family members stealing from family members and loving each other for it because everyone is a bandit (Pickle, TPS). Apparently sexuality, too. (Weird that Borderlands makes your sexuality (and proclivity to violence) a minority right? Have you ever experienced being a minority in something before?) Try not to take it too seriously, and just enjoy it for an experience of excess as the rest of the games are.
If you want to take your experiences - which by the way are in a safe virtual environment - and learn from them, maybe let your boundaries be pushed, great. If you take your experiences, step back and say, “Wow this is awful, I hope reality never becomes like this…” Well, you’re in luck because it never will. (Unless we start living in Surrogates and start blowing each other up because our bodies are expendable, hey, Bruce Willis?)
