EA scores 100% on Human Rights Campaign’s equality index, again

Tuesday, 10 December 2013 02:23 GMT By Brenna Hillier

EA, the publisher voted Worst Company in America two years running, has just scored at least its third gong as one of the best places in the nation to work.

The publisher scored 100% and earned the title of one of the “Best Places to Work 2014” in the Human Rights Campaign’s Corporate Equality Index report.

“We are extremely proud of this achievement that recognizes corporate policies and practices that demonstrate a commitment to LGBT equality and inclusion,” EA wrote on its blog.

EA also earned perfect scores in 2008 and 2012.

EA is pro-active about inclusivity. It fields a Diversity & Inclusion team, hosted a discussion day for inclusivity issues this year, was a primary sponsor of GaymerX and was part of an anti-DOMA coalition. It’s also been supportive of developer efforts, like BioWare’s increasing efforts to allow for alternative romances.

Here’s a video of EA at a bunch of pride parades this year, for the hell of it and also because of the Plants vs Zombies wedding float.

Thanks, Polygon.

    Showing up and using gay pride parades as a chance to market games to a new demographic doesn’t in my mind make them great at anything other than being opportunists.

    EA can be as gay friendly as they want, but they are still the worst company on Earth and no amount of rainbow white washing will ever make that not so.

    No one has ever said you had to like any company but this EA hate is beyond ridiculous. If you don’t like them, fine, don’t support them. But claiming that they’re evil & all that BS is just irritating when in fact they’re one of the most progressive large companies around. Don’t worry, I hate a lot of their product policies too but that doesn’t make them a bad company, at worst it makes their products bad.

    @11 I think you make a very important distinction between a company’s products and the company itself. Hating / loving the product is often inappropriately extended to hating / loving the company that produces the product.

    Whilst I don’t think it’s always right or wrong to extrapolate that sentiment in such a way, I do believe it’s a very common misstep that many make.

    I’m not against “these guys in the parade” but I’m against any parade that supports or use people for any kind of sexual propaganda.

    My opinion on this is that EA should not do this.

    + I don’t like EA with a passion. Because as a publisher it does a very poor job with the “customer service” in fact “customer service” does not exist in EA realms at least in my personal exp with them. When I buy EA game I always feel like I’m a sheep in the hands of a publisher that tries to test on me different payment mechanisms.

    Anyway, I don’t support this at all and if anyone supports this should be ashamed of himself.

    In this case, I feel they have done more harm than good in recent times and understand why many people can be pissed off with there practices.

    @Dave Cook, Oh that’s so simple to do when you are excited about Battlefield 4.

    @Gheritt White,” I *always* knew you were a bigot, now we have the proof. Why don’t you fuck off over to Russia, I’m sure they’d welcome prejudiced views like yours with open arms, you intolerant cunt.”

    So far you are the only “intoletant cunt” here. I did not say that I hate these people or anything but I don’t want parades all over the place for no reason at all. Especially from EA for no reason at all. That’s my opinion on it. I don’t see myself making a heterosexual parade for some reason or even going there if there will be one.

    “Worst company on Earth” means no such thing, just like “Worst-dressed women” lists are meaningless. The worst-dressed people are starving in the streets, not living in a Hollywood mansion. These are just ways to throw darts at targets within narrow categories. For truly evil corporations, we need to look much further than videogames. But I have no problem with the “worst” label, as long as we all understand the context.

    I don’t parade promiscuously down main street either. Frankly, that behavior is disgusting, regardless of sexual orientation. Some things really do belong behind closed doors.

    It is not the place of the majority to dictate what the minority should do. Nobody is making you go to the parades. The moment you start deciding what they have a right to do is the moment you become a bigot.

    I’d suggest being very careful with your future posts. You’re probably threading very closely to the “homophobia ban” line. It’s pretty obvious you’re a bigot, even if you say you’re not. “I’m not against gay people, but…”

    I don’t like the sexual content most gay parades have, the same way I don’t like the sexual content in “carnaval” here in Brazil. But it’s funny to see how it’s usually much more offensive when gays are doing it.

    Look, my problem with EA doing the whole LGBT thing is that it’s nice and all but I don’t think its sincere in the slightest.

    As supported by past evidence, everything EA does is motivated by profit. This means that what they are really doing is using this cause to broaden their demographics, increase media awareness, take advantage of tax loopholes and make themselves look good instead of fixing their shitty business practices.

    If I’m a billionaire asshole and I donate 100 million to children’s cancer research in order to get my name out there, make myself look good and use the donation as a tax write off, yes, I did something good for children’s cancer research but I’m still a fricken asshole.

    True and earnest philanthropy is anonymous gifting, not “hey, look at what I did, aren’t I awesome?” gifting.

    @Ireland Michael, oh stop the bullshit about my ban or anything. I’m not going close to anything. I’m just against these parades. I’m against any parade that involves sexual propaganda. Especially from Electronic Arts.

    and I’m not deciding for them anything. It’s just these parades are pointless. They cost money, make some people angry (angry about it) and make streets unclean and etc. Some of the companies use it for their own good just to make them look better in the eyes of people who they support. Pointless and stupid.

    @Fin, “Yeah, heterosexuals have had to endure some tough times haven’t they?
    (PROTIP: they haven’t)”
    and other people need to endure something? Good luck pal. Speak for yourself.

    “Russia has become quite unfriendly to gay people recently

    Read more BBC and other stupid propaganda bullshit because so far you don’t have your own brain to read Russian consitution if you are that interested in these “sexual” issues. It has nothing to do with reality. Russia has a law that prevents any sexual propaganda (in schools, kindergarten and etc) until the age of 18.

    There are several and some serious reasons for that and if someone does not understand that then he is indeed “intolerant cunt” that has no brains.

    Just assume he means this: “Sexual propaganda”: Its a form of communication, PR stunt etc. etc. which is aimed at telling only one side of the coin in this case “sexual propaganda”.

    This could be false or true. Usually repeated. (Edited Wikipedia Meaning). But i don’t see how we stumbled onto this.

    Best I can make out, it’s a blanket term used to stop sex education for people under 18. No wait, not all sex education, just anything that isn’t heterosexual sex.

    Cos, y’know, people under 18 can’t be gay.

    Ha here in the Netherlands a dark skinned fella applied for an internship at a electronics company and he got denied because he was black. His intaker accidently emailed a response to him instead to a colleague.

    I bet a lot of the “elite” judge on skin, ethnicity and sexual orientation and if they had a choice they wouldnt hire a lot of people just by these aspects instead of their actual skills.

    This EA stunt is nothing but propaganda indeed. With that said still its a positive thing even though just for PR.

    @Erthazus There are two arguments here that I’d like to point out, which I agree with one and disagree with the other.

    A company that shows up to Pride events is full of shit. They use their marketing teams to draw up this image of LGBTQ equality within their company to mass market to LGBTQ bodies. If we look back on queer history, the point LGBTQ fought for so long and hard was to be away from companies and not buying into a heteronormative/homonormative lifestyle. Obviously, the marriage agenda and company reinforcement have changed a lot of what LGBTQ bodies used to fight for. So, I agree with your point that we shouldn’t have companies like EA out there to market their products to LGBTQ in exchange for their support.

    But, when it comes to parade events and your point about “heterosexual parades”, seriously, look around. Take a nice look at the representation of our times, regardless of culture or location. Visibility of heterosexuality (and all hierarchy identities for that matter) are everywhere. We see in media, public, performance, products, life, etc. There is no need for more visibility of your inclusiveness. LGBTQ, as well as other organizations/identity groups, need events like Pride to show there are more LGBTQ people out there that don’t have the representation as cigendered heterosexual-identified bodies do. It isn’t about sexual propaganda; its the lack of sexual information and displacement of queer/different sexuality (which isn’t limited to “gay”) that is broadly overlooked and mostly suppressed by heteronormativity.

    I’d like to note that several territories (including my own) could comparatively be called progressive re. LBGTQ social issues. Applying the notion that certain ends of the sexuality spectrum are mis- or under-represented on a global scale seems dismissive of the aforementioned territories.

    Cultured regions tend to reassess various cultural norms generation to generation i.e music, art, diplomatic alignment, sexuality, etc. Misappropriation of cultural or religious normalcy is phased out over time, meanwhile awareness and/or pride parades amount to little else than a big ole shindig with varying coloured streamers.

    Equality isn’t a struggle, it’s a waiting game.
