Last month, The Mary Sue published a post about Samus Aran from the Metroid series being transgender. It was contentious not only because of what it asserted, but because of the basis for the argument (authorial intent and artistic interpretation). Today on Polygon, an opinion article discusses how the main character of The Taken King, the newest Destiny expansion is in fact transgender, but the (con)text is buried:
I don't know how to interpret the developers' intent in including this fact, but keeping it buried so far down in the lore as to only be found by the most committed gamers. Surely they knew it would surface, and perhaps that was their hope--for it to be found and discussed--but surely they would have known that a negative interpretation was also possible as well.
