Bioware vs. privilege

Bioware makes it clear that social justice is an issue they wish to take a stand for:

You can write it off as “political correctness” if you wish, but the truth is that privilege always lies with the majority. They’re so used to being catered to that they see the lack of catering as an imbalance. They don’t see anything wrong with having things set up to suit them, what’s everyone’s fuss all about? That’s the way it should be, any everyone else should be used to not getting what they want.

This is in stark contrast to just about the entire history of video and computer gaming.  It’s an old issue, and it’s interesting to see Bioware trying to do something about it.
