The sheer spiteful hatred directed towards trans people is unconscionable, I'm taken aback by how people can lack empathy this much.

It's sad that even just highlighting this kind of overt transphobia is a double-edged sword, because the dogwhistle has clearly found the intended audience and as such that hatred will only boost their sales. Hate pays.

I feel ill for having helped signal boost this game only a month ago. It seemed to be a bit of a gem with queer gamers, only for this cruel display to happen. I deeply apologize to anyone who may have picked it up because of me.
