Illustration for article titled Microsoft Looking To Change Xbox Live Sexual Discrimination

Been a bit of a fuss lately over Xbox Live and people's sexual orientation. People being banned left and right for wearing said orientation on their sleeves (well, gamertag/profile). It's a mess.


But it's a mess Microsoft are looking into, with Xbox Live Police Chief Stephen Toulouse saying:

Expression of any sexual orientation (straight or gay or otherswise (sic)) is not allowed in gamertags.

However we've heard from the user base they want that capability, so I am examining how we can provide it in a way that wont get misused.

I can't say any more at the moment, except to say I'm working right now in finding a way to safely express relationship preference.

Better late than never, huh?
