I'm confused. Why is it that you want a *** linkshell?
Does it matter what orientation the other people in your linkshell are? Wouldn't you rather get in a shell that has good and friendly people regardless of if they're *** or straight? Why limit yourself to such a narrow scope when there are already a ton of good shells out there?
I don't think he wants a *** only LS and not to be party of anything else. Just to know there is a place to go where there is an established community. It's easy when you are in the mainstream of what is generally accepted to ask this. So here is a brief history lesson:
In the USA It wasn't long ago that women couldn't own land, african-americans were considered personal property, and african americans/women couldn't vote- they were all second class citizens. Then they became separate but "equal" (really... just as long as you sit over there I'll tolerate you). Today- They have all the same rights-- but there is still a culture of discrimination that lingers. Even today a mixed couple can get stares depending on where in the world you are. Today many same *** couples cannot marry, share benefits/inheritances. One of my dear (older) black friends said to me the other year "I'm so glad the spotlight is off of "us" now. You realize you are fighting for the same thing we had to fight for years ago-- but you are fighting for it today
" Even when we achieve full equal benefits--- we will have years ahead of us before we are a fully integrated part of society.
There is a really good chance that if you are *** one of the only social outlets you have is the internet . We are by definition a second class citizen in most parts of the world. While I am NOT saying that's why we would be drawn to each in game I am saying (and I am not a sociologist) that it creates a culture and a bond between us. Again- I'm not scientists and I'm not trying to speak for the entire *** community, rather just shed some light on a subject that you may not understand. We all work, we study and do our own thing. The reason I joined a *** LS was simple: Wow- people like me that I can talk about RL stuff with and play a game I like. I do endgame stuff with other shells. They know I'm ***. They don't care.
Not to sound harsh- but your mentality sounds a bit unseasoned and juvenile so I'll liken it to this: Being in a *** LS is kinda like sitting at the jock table in the cafeteria. You play sports, you study, you work- but you choose to sit with the "team". You don't sit with the skaters, the D&D players, the marching band.. etc. You choose to sit there because that's where you feel home. Now- again- I'm not saying you shouldn't feel at home anywhere you would like to sit. But that's where you want to be. Maybe the OP wants to join a server, do endgame with one shell and have a *** social shell.
