Uh oh. BioWare is apparently censoring the words “gay,” “homosexual” and “lesbian” from the Old Republic message boards.

Why? According to moderator Sean Dahlberg, “As I have stated before, these are terms that do not exist in Star Wars.”

At least you’re not alone, Stephen. Just a hunch, but you can probably expect this to get quite ugly.
