Taiwanese MMO allows for gay marriage (yay!)

Taiwanese MMORPG Runes of Magic has an update coming that allows players to get married and become "connected" with each other. The big news, however, is that that Runewaker Entertainment's Warcraft-esque game is going to be more progressive than the United States -- allowing same-sex marriage all across the board. Awesome!

"You will be married and somehow connected to the other player," explains Western publisher Frogster. "Of course you can only be married with one person at the same time. It's even possible to have gay couples, so no need to just have a male and female character. Two male characters and two female characters can marry each other."

Isn't that nice? Now if only we could get that kind of open-minded and modern thinking in real life as well as videogames, rather than pander to a bunch of inbred hypocrites who whine that "it ain't natural" even though their clothes, cars, and straight marriages aren't products of nature either.

Runewaker is alright by us!
