    How does one send rim a message? I have tried and email bounce back. I have a strong objection to a game with this subject matter targeted to young kids. I shouldn't have to worry that material of this nature is so easily accessible by my kids via their playbook.

    oh dont be a baby
    don't buy it if you don't like it

    its people like you that ruin freedom of speech

    gay
       [gey] Show IPA adjective, -er, -est, noun, adverb
    adjective

    having or showing a merry, lively mood: gay spirits; gay music.

    bright or showy: gay colors; gay ornaments.

    given to or abounding in social or other pleasures: a gay social season.


    Rim does have a stringent approval process and it passed obviously, and it is a fun game
    it just puts more pressure on you to educate your children if anything bothers you.

    It's sending the message that it's 2012 and you shouldn't be such a homophobe. And if you're gonna send an email to RIM about it, send one to Apple as well. Much like humans are humans, dragons are dragons.

    I think you need to watch the South Park episode where they call all the "Fags" riding Harley's "Fags" and how the "Gay" community got offended by it. Common it's 2012 don't turn you're kids in Homophobes, there are already enough in this world(you being one of them apparently). Gay is whatever your kids are going to grow up and associate the word with. I don't bash people for their choice of sexuality but I sure do use the word "Gay" in ways the Oxford English dictionary didn't intend me to

    Hello Drecar,


    While I may disagree that this is an issue, as there are much worse apps out there, you can always control what apps are viewable by:

    Opening App world
    Swiping from the top frame down
    Selecting content settings
    And setting it to "G" as the "gay dragon" app is graded for a Teen or Higher


    Hope this helps!

    I had laughed so hard when I saw this thread. #1 A game in an app store should be the least of your worries. The Internet is flooded with worse stuff. #2 Your kids will grow up sooner or later. #3 A video game won't turn your children gay.
