Xbox Bans Man For Living In "Fort Gay." Except, That's Where He Lives.

UPDATE: Microsoft admitted they made a mistake and has updated their training policy.

Ok, now this is getting redonkulous. Xbox has been suspending gamers for some time for mentioning or otherwise referencing their sexual orientation in their gamer profiles, but now they’ve gone ahead and banned a guy because he said he lives in “Fort Gay.” Huh huh, Beavis indeed, but there is a real town called Fort Gay. It’s in West Virginia, and that’s where the guy really lives.
