I identify as an Apache attack helicopter. If I don't have the option to play as one in the game, it's discriminating against me.
Jesus, it's not like they put some neon-haired, genderfluid, trans, autistic survivor of racist assault... it's just a woman. And 95% of people don't give a shit and aren't as triggered as you. So I'm not sure what "I identify as..." has anything to do with this.
On another note, this whole thing is super weird to me. There was a whole campaign mission in BF1 where you play as a woman. An Arab woman, iirc. I don't remember there being a mini shitstorm over it back then. Part of me thinks that the 5% of people who don't like EA's decision are purposefully being amplified by EA just to promote the game. Actually, that's probably exactly what's happening.
