Overwatch (opens in new tab) released another little webcomic last night (opens in new tab) that introduced us to Tracer's girlfriend, Emily, via a last minute dash for some Christmas shopping. I think this panel just about sums that up.
While a few people seem to have trouble processing things, the community as a whole is basically...

"Hey Tracer is gay""Oh cool""No... you don't get it. Tracer is GAY""Yeah.""No dude Tracer is gay""Yeah what about""She's gay!""Yeah"December 21, 2016
"Oh, Tracer is in a gay relationship" *moves on with life entirely unaffected by this news*^ Sane people.December 21, 2016
Or just happy about it.
IM SO HAPPY! #overwatch pic.twitter.com/6Suf7oomWGDecember 20, 2016
Although, one person's denial-filled idea that full on kissing between girls might just be a 'British thing' has rightfully taken a beating.
It's... not a British thing to kiss your friend, we don't even want to fucking talk to each other. https://t.co/XUW3yFzE1eDecember 20, 2016
"Maybe it's just a thing straight British women do!" - said an actual guy commenting on the Overwatch Tracer comic. pic.twitter.com/qK1lGI2v9rDecember 20, 2016
There's also this, which kind of nails the stupidity of anyone being upset in the first place on any level.
I'm so angry to discover Tracer's a lesbian! Now I'll never have a chance with the cartoon video game lady!December 21, 2016
However, there is also a far bigger issue to consider here.
TRACER 👏🏽 BEING 👏🏽 GAY 👏🏽 WILL 👏🏽 NOT 👏🏽 CHANGE 👏🏽 THE 👏🏽 GAME 👏🏽 YOU 👏🏽 FUCKERS 👏🏽 STILL 👏🏽 IGNORE 👏🏽 THE 👏🏽 GOD 👏🏽 DAMN 👏🏽 PAYLOAD 👏🏽December 20, 2016
Tracer is a lesbian? Wow, that can only mean one thing -- MOVE THE GODDAMNED PAYLOADDecember 21, 2016
Tracer may be gay, but the real question @PlayOverwatch need to answer is why won't my TEAM HELP WITH THE PAYLOAD pic.twitter.com/D3QnsUVihbDecember 21, 2016
IT DOESNT MATTER IF TRACER IS GAY, YALL STILL IGNORE THE PAYLOADDecember 21, 2016
People informing me that Tracer is gay in-game.Dude, I don't care if she is a one-eyed pelican. Play the fucking payload.December 21, 2016
Finally, someone really needs to check into this.
Tracer can teleport. Tracer is gay. Logically, I think it is safe to assume that all gay people can teleport. Someone check my math.December 21, 2016
