The existence of LGBT people is an historical fact, not a fantasy. This idea that a possible religious reform doctrine that enables same-sex marriage must additionally be locked behind a game rules option that is not active by default is a curious shibboleth.If this proposal does not affect the base game and has to be turned on as an option I see no problem why it cannot be implemented in some way. Many people who play CK2/3 are into factual historical gaming so I hope this will not be affected but for those who want a fantasy type game I see no problem.
Yes, same-sex marriage was not practised in the area currently covered by the game during the historical period in question. Nor were a lot of other things that are available as reform doctrines without having to enable them separately by game rules. This idea that same-sex marriage, out of all possible reform doctrines, is so exceptional that it must be additionally gated, is homophobic nonsense.
