    First of all, this isn't insult or a curse/forbidden word. It's almost 2020 and people of all kind are playing this game. Everyone should be free to express themselves, however when some people try, they get muted for being themselves? Sorry but this isn't funny.

    I have full respect towards people who accept and respect it and those who doesn't. It's fully your choice. Maybe even some game developers are against it? No problem, your choice. But please respect the people and the fact that LGBT people actually exist.

    I really hope that these words are going to be taken down from "muted" list soon.

    Thank you.
    I can't believe you asked this question.

    STS will never unban offensive words. That should be natural common sense, like 1 + 1 = 2.

    You should see it from different perspective. Too bad people in Arcane Legends aren't as open minded as I thought they are.
    I ride the buss with a trans woman who has a 5 inch scar across her throat. Are you going to tell everyone how to feel while not knowing what some ppl have survived? Inclusivity and equality necessitate humble compassion to the very things you may not have any ability to know, like others experiences.

    Someone with ptsd can’t be expected to shrug off whatever, that’s not respecting everyone either.

    Your reply is quite confusing. Bottom line, STS will not entertain this, hence the lack of STS replies to this post. I cannot believe they did not lock this post yet.

    If someone has been victimized no one has any reason to tell them they shouldn’t be offended by a word that can easily trigger them.

    Unless you are LGBT, what is your point?

    I am not LGBT but I know that use of certain words can affect certain individuals harshly.

    Do you also recommend use of the "N" word?

    What are you saying?

    You recommend that a development company put themselves in legal trouble?

    Explain.

    You’re totally confused, I was saying ofc the word will mostly be misused, and also that we can’t tell people how to feel therefore we need to be more cautious than to say ppl shouldn’t be offended when it is misused.

    Why he needs to say those words?
    Maybe he has to refer to someone who is indeed gay or homosexual.

    aside from my statement it shouldnt be unbanned, i believe this is a totally uncalled for and outright dumb reply of yours.
    Thats just my opinion enjoy the rest of your day.

    One thing that sts could do is instead of mute is just block words they find offensive with **** instead of muting someone for not knowing which words are on their list. I've been muted a few times by just not knowing a word was on their list.

    Why is it 'ok' to use my sexuality as an insult? Do you find me insulting?

    I love that. I couldn't find a way to express it and you did it perfectly.

    I think you are misunderstanding. Those words are banned NOT because the affiliated people are bad, they are banned because trolls and misfits would abuse it and excessively use it to attack people. Those words cannot be un-banned. I believe LGBT is allowed, that will allow those who are interested to express themselves without using words that would be strong ammo 4 the opposition.
