The bug in question, for those not aware, allows for two male characters to fall in love, marry one another, and produce offspring. It doesn't work between female characters, supposedly. The bug can occur when one has Miis that have been moved to the 3DS using the Mii transfer software.

Nintendo are now sending out an update for the game soon that'll fix this bug along with some other issues the game is suffering from including:
- Inability to boot up the game.
- General errors.
- Inability to save.
- Received a notice on the Home menu's notifications from a child sent on a journey, but no actual message is there.

Them having off spring I can completely understand as Two men can't have a baby together.

Them removing the option to be gay kinda shocks me. They have things like Captian Rainbow, Birdo and Tingle and while these aren't flat out homosexuals, they have tons of themes that come across as gay and Nintendo hasn't been big on censoring for a long time despite them having a reputation of doing so.

Why put "gay bug" in quotes when you are the originator of the term since neither the Kotaku article nor Nintendo's notice explicitly call it that?

It's not an "option" though.

It's really too bad. I would have liked to see Nintendo spin this bug into a positive pr move. Get rid of the game breaking issues and pregnancy, but leave the rest. Would have been nice.

Fire Emblem has had both Lesbians and Gays, so again this isn't something Nintendo has hidden away, be it a serious character or a joke.

I don't think there was never a gay option in the game. Though it would be great if there was.

Only thing they really need to do is not allow players to produce offspring -- fixed. Then, they could add adoption as DLC. Win/win.

I see.

Haven't followed New Life honestly. A shame honestly. Was really sad they didn't allow for it in Fire Emblem A, though that had whole gameplay system based around the child from what I read so it was kinda reasonable there.

I don't really get why there's controversy over this. It actually IS a bug. I mean, they should probably patch in homosexual relationships and stuff, but yeah, I'd say it's a bug to have two male characters procreate.

It's clear why there's a controversy: By fixing this bug they are actively calling attention to the fact that Nintendo released a "life simulator" game in 2013 that doesn't take homosexuality into account.

Why would the presence of homosexual relations make any difference on whether the game is considered "all ages" or not?

It seems Nintendo really loves generating bad PR, practically every move they make is designed to draw the ire of the public.

A "bug" is commonly referred to something you can catch, usually making you sick...

and when you're sick you take pills...

And no, I did not misunderstand you. I am well aware of said camps.

Some ignorant people don't want kids to learn that homosexuals and/or homosexual relationships exist. It's mostly a thing in Amurica.

Yeah, even more so when the Sims is already on the Platform. Different culters and all I guess, still while I'm not about to scream Homophobs, or whatever I was honestly just a little surprised that Gays/Lesbians isn't an option.

And the "real life" thing that people do that they think can "cure" gay people, is to send them to religious camp. I got your joke. I was making fun of reality. I don't think you got mine.
