Idk, how I see it, businesses are constantly trying to pander. Look at the"we're all going through tough times" shit we obtained for covid19. I really don't know why people single out Pride month pandering year after year. I don't know why people only out Pride month pandering year in, year out. Because often, a bunch of companies who have supported anti-LGBT policies, politicians, or possibly have only been not incredibly progressive previously, all slap rainbow avatars on twitter and either say some hollow words, or worse, trying to market pride-themed merchandise. Because frequently, a lot of companies that have supported anti-LGBT coverages, politicians, or perhaps have just been not terribly progressive previously, all slap rainbow avatars on twitter and say some hollow words, or worse, trying to monetize pride-themed product. It is singled out since it's especially transparent. I think fauxgressive is much better. Passive progressive sounds just like an actual progressive thing who makes no progressive actions. Fauxgressive sounds like someone pretending to be progressive. I recall reading a sizable segment of the LGBTQ community despises how corporate Pride Parades have gotten because those businesses were nowhere to be seen when their support could have made a difference, especially at the peak of the AIDS catastrophe.
If EA wants to make a difference at this time, they can donate to the Minnesota Freedom Fund. God knows they have deep pockets. In the meantime, I don't think they deserve some woke tokens for simply not releasing a trailer. Since the majority finally decided LGBT stuff was okay? I don't hold a significant corporation to higher standards then my fellow Americans. Is it really something"great" if it's so secure for them to do? What? What part of this is"good"? You understand that delaying a video game trailer is not actually a sign of solidarity, right? It is not even an action - it's the lack of one. It is as inconsequential as it gets - which I guess is why it may cause some criticism, given that it is a marketing ploy. And it's worked perfectly, since we're talking it.
