Yesterday, Blizzard released an Overwatch comic for the winter holidays that revealed something important about the character Tracer: she doesn't need to wear her chronal accelerator at all times! Oh, also she has a girlfriend.
If you haven't read the comic, here's a brief recap:
If you're still not getting it, Tumblr user greatlordfluffernutter has written a helpful explainer.
Most fans are pretty cool with this reveal, but there are a few holdouts that seem either in denial or upset.

Remember, no matter how pathetic, stupid, unattractive, unmotived, and lacking in talent you are, at least you're not this guy pic.twitter.com/hfMlwZMPAS

If you're bothered that Tracer's queer, pretend her sexuality is the payload, because then you'll ignore it and continue on with your day.

But for the most part, the internet is completely overjoyed.
Despite everything, one thing remains true about Overwatch.
TRACER ?? BEING ?? GAY ?? WILL ?? NOT ?? CHANGE ?? THE ?? GAME ?? YOU ?? FUCKERS ?? STILL ?? IGNORE ?? THE ?? GOD ?? DAMN ?? PAYLOAD ??
