Oi, lots of drama here..:)
I always liked that most conflicts in BT were not religion- or race-based.
There are some....namely Word of Blake Jihad or racist behavior in Kurita-Space(Pure Japanese heritage against "Gaijin"), but in total
every person, regardless of heritage or believes could play any House or Periphery-Member without any bad feelings.
That was quite refreshing, almost like Startrek if you forget that there is constant war among the human race.
LGTB has never been a matter in BT, I believe such animosities have been solved before mankind left their cradle.....and as long you fit in the cockpit
of a Spider noone cares about your preferences.
Only time I encountered dissense in sexual practices came with the arrival of the Clans. I.e. Geschko(Geschwisterkompanie)....I believe its Sibko(Sibling Company?) in english.
Phelan Kell was quite unhappy with that if I recall it correctly.
