Quantic Dream’s AAA Sony (formerly) exclusive title is now available for free to PlayStation Plus users and, according to some, Detroit: Become Human is homophobic.

Pro Evolution Soccer 2019 was supposed to be this month’s PlayStation Plus freebie, but for some unknown reason Sony decided to switch out for Quantic Dream’s Detroit: Become Human.

Detroit: Become Human is an adventure game developed. The plot follows three androids: Kara (Valorie Curry), who escapes the owner she was serving to explore her newfound sentience and protect a young girl; Connor (Bryan Dechart), whose job is to hunt down sentient androids; and Markus (Jesse Williams), who devotes himself to releasing other androids from servitude. They may survive or perish depending on dialogue choices.

The game was received with mostly positive reviews and is currently sitting at a solid 80 percent on Metacritic, and until today the game has not been met with any controversy. But, of course, making the game available for free on the PlayStation store has significantly enlarged the install base, and some people are not happy with the game; namely the male strippers. According to them, it is homophobic.

Clearly this guy, is a little more enthused.

In one scene you play as Connor, a droid detective. You have to track down a lead in an all-android strip-club and brothel. In this area, one of the male strippers does not look as enthused as his female counterpart. This has resulted in the LGBT community lashing out the game designers for being homophobic.

“Clearly, they were uncomfortable creating an exotic male dancer,” they said.

Is Detroit: Become Human homophobic?

It is often easy to jump straight to the defensive instead of diving deep into the context of a situation. In this regard, if something makes us uncomfortable we are quick to judge and point fingers instead of, perhaps, trying to understand the context.. and context means everything.

First and foremost, Detroit is about the rising of sentient, self-aware, androids who are still seen as slaves and toys to the rest of humanity (sounds familiar, right?). Ultimately, one of these androids has an epiphany and he must rise to the occasion and lead a revolution to win rights and freedom for the rest of android-kind.

If you’ve made it as far at the strip-club scene you should know this. That male stripper android, like the others, is being forced into stripping against his will. Of course he is not going to be enthused about it. It is also evident that androids can feel love and each have their own sexual orientations. If you haven’t already, you will discover later in the game. As a matter of fact, if you walk around enough, you will also see female dancers who are not thrilled to be there either. And, without spoiling the game, you will meet two very unique female androids there that share this feeling.

Quantic Dream weren’t uncomfortable while making erotic male dancers. It was very vital story-centric element that fits the narrative perfectly.
