At this point, I might as well go ahead and ban you for a week. We have basic rules about this stuff here (rule 2, especially the last part, and the banned topics, which include questioning someone's gender identity, which that hamster remark certainly crossed whatever you intended by it). Given your joining date, I'm surprised you haven't bothered to read all that anyway, but I'll link them for good measure. While you're out, you can read them. Also, playing the concern troll with disabilities is off too.This didn't even in the slightest crossed my mind. My point was simply to say " I want to do anything " and I could have said a Teenager boy carrying his lunchbox around. I just wanted to show the "anything" part. I'm sorry if I sounded offensive, but that was just a fictional example and character I came up with.
I understand your life must not be simple, and you must have went through lots of hardship, pains and the like. I have just one question in that case and it is Would they have to mention in a book, that if you want to play a disabled character on a wheel chair ( and OWOD did allow you that ) , a missing arm , a Trisomic , and the list can go on, Do they have to mention it too ( and I'm not comparing you to any of that, just stating more people which are different and not based on sex and/or sexuality ) ? Play what you want is simpler and encompasses everything. But if it makes your life happier than I'm all for that.
I know the difference, I used gay as an example of difference (which in all sincerity isn't really different for me in my day to day life, I mean he's a man that I talk to, that I work with, and what he does with his sexual life, is none of my business and concern, which is exactly the same to any white heterosexual if you ask me).
Like he said, there's two side of the medal to "being mentionned"
The good side is you're being acknowledged, talked, accepted. And that's good.
The bad side is you're being singled out as being different, while in reality, with most people, they don't know, need to know, and so on what happens in his bedroom, and just the fact that they know he is, changes how they treat him because their jerks/ignorant.
