    Nintendo is well known for producing toys for the peasantry popular game consoles and beloved franchises. Many people immediately equate video games to Nintendo properties, and characters like Mario, Boy Zelda, and Samus have withstood the test of time.

    Nintendo often strives for inclusiveness, trying to create products for the unwashed proletariat masses whole family.

    However, it seems that inclusiveness only goes so far...

    While definitely an improvement on their original reaction, it's still rather unfortunate.

    Now to be entirely fair, the same-sex marriage bit wasn't originally intended to be in the game; it was a glitch (and a wonky one at that - female characters couldn't get married, and male characters could get pregnant). Still, surely it could have been fixed and let be? Plus, let's be honest here, Nintendo's language is a bit disheartening. I mean, last I checked, it's the 21st century. About time we get over this, no?

    Really, it's just kind of a shock. I thought Nintendo was totally down with two guys doing the plumbing! Guess I thought wrong.

    they usually are fine with same sex stuff. Heck we saw it in the new fire emblem, even if it had been ripped out of the others.

    Good job Nintendo, keep it up. Continued support for your games post-release is admirable.

    Well it was a glitch, not like it was intended in the first place. Female characters couldn't do it either, only the males had the glitch.

    deal with it

    However, I do understand the internet rage that Nintendo's statement has caused. I agree that it isn't right.

    If I was gay, you'd never catch me acting like a fag. (joke directed at Dinoh).

    So was this just something they missed when they released the game or what?

    Males getting pregnant should not be fixed.

    TIL, GBATemp.

    EDIT so people don't think I'm crazy because "lol what's a source???":

    Who cares really? Homosexuality is represented in every avenue of the media at this point, so I think it is only fair that A. Nintendo gets to do what Nintendo wants to do with it's own creations. B. That there be a little section of the market place where it as well as sex in general do not have to be present.
    Leave it be!

    Pretty much this, the bug was much worse than just allowing same sex marriage. It screwed up other things as well, and in my opinion male pregnancy counts as "human relations that become strange." If they wanted to make it a proper feature, that probably would have been much more work considering you'd probably need to add exceptions and special cases for all sorts of things.

    Well, if they were just removing gay marriage, that might be a little upsetting, but most likely the bug was caused by the exact same thing as men getting pregnant. Therefore, they aren't intentionally removing functionality, and this change gets a Yes vote from me.
