So “gay” apparently means “bad”. I guess I knew on some level that some people had negative connotations for the word but I honestly thought that was on the absolute fringes of society. Maybe hardcore homophobes were using gay as a pejorative between themselves when nobody was around but I never thought it would be as widespread as it is in the video gaming community today.
After that I made a conscious effort to start “reclaiming” the phrase “gay game”. A “gay game” does not mean a shit game or losing a game or a game that doesn’t work. It means a game with some combination of gay characters, gay visuals, a gay worldview, gay gameplay or gay experiences at its core.
The traditional term for homosexuality in China is “the passion of the cut sleeve boys” (断袖之癖), so named from the story of Emperor Ai of Han (27 BCE - 1 BCE) and Dong Xian (23 BCE - 1 BCE). As the story goes, Emperor Ai fell in love with a minor official named Dong Xian. Dong Xian quickly gained the Emperor’s favor. One afternoon as they slept in bed, Emperor Ai woke up. Rather than wake his lover, he cut the sleeves of his robe to let his lover sleep longer. Homosexuality was regarded as a normal affair up until the late Qing dynasty when the government attempted to westernize the country.
