Gaming with 'GayBoy'

Sun 2 Dec 2007 In: Worth Checking Out View at Wayback View at NDHA

A gay gamer logged into Xbox's popular shoot-'em-up Halo 3, calling himself 'xxxGayBoyxxx'. What could go wrong? Surely no one would give our gay 'straight-shooter' a hard time? 'GayBoy' tells us: "Other than maybe a quick 'hello' to the chat room or a request to 'veto', I didn't say anything first or taunt anyone. What was said by these players was done with no provocation on my part. The vast majority of the times I wouldn't even respond back." Check out how some trigger-happy online gamers responded to brave trouper GayBoy below. Matt Akersten - 2nd December 2007
