Not to nitpick, but I'm gonna nitpick:

A. There are no gay relationships in Baldur's Gate or Baldur's Gate 2, by default. They have to be enabled with a 3rd party tool that strips out gender check for those NPC conversations.

B. Bioware didn't even make the original Baldur's Gate.

C. The first gay romance option in a Bioware game was Liara in Mass Effect in 2007. The first gay male romance options in a Bioware game were in Dragon Age in 2009.

It may not be particularly interesting to look at the political significance of your turds, but as video games continue to grow as a medium of expression, the importance of attempting to understand their political and social relevance should be obvious.

As a side note, is it really so threatening to look for deeper meaning in the mundane aspects of your life?

All the simple programs have been written.
