Princess Peach and Princess Zelda about to have sex with each other? Sadly, that’s not such a far-fetched notion after the May 18 episode of HBO’s “Last Week Tonight With John Oliver.”
Sunday was the 10-year anniversary of the legalization of same-sex marriage in Massachusetts. Gay rights groups complained last week that Nintendo’s new “Tomodachi” game did not include the option to marry an avatar of the same-sex, the story was heavily covered by the media (because no aspect of life – however trivial – can be allowed to stand unpoliticized). Nintendo apologized and promised to be more inclusive in the future – thus giving comedian John Oliver comic fodder: What will Nintendo look like in the future with gay characters?
