    The impression that I got from GLAAD is that they are rellay not knowledgeable about homophobia in online environments. They should have had queer gamers and people who have expertise in creating policies that protect LGBT (and other oppressed groups) on the panel, and invited people from the industry to learn from those people. GLAAD is eager to learn, but I feel they’re not getting the right kind of guidance on how to approach this. I tried to give them as many suggestions as I could, but I don’t know how much they took them on board and whether they will consider them.
