Gold is for the mistress, silver for the maid
Copper for the craftsman, cunning at his trade.

I've replaced the previous Edition Warring line in my sig with this one, because honestly, everybody needs to work together to make the D&D they like without trampling on somebody else's D&D.

Given how casual Zil are with their gods, I doubt that they would be any more regimented with their dalliances.
I would take it that the basic POV most people have is 'it's none of my business how consenting adults spend their free time'. Some individuals, of course, will have varying views of varying intensities.
This. Eberron has an incredible pileup of political, conspiratorial, terrifying intrigue and problems. Like Australia and the proportion of animals that will kill you, except with organized groups and the proportion of groups that are part of the "let me get my string" issues. Does it really need codified homophobia, too? I'm not going to take this on from a well-reasoned setting-specific-based perspective, because other posters have already done that very nicely. I'm coming at it from the this is a game-enjoyment perspective: Unless there's is a good reason to include a significant level of social/legal marginalization or persecution, why do it? Does leaving it low-key detract from the quality of richness of the setting? I think not. Does including it enrich the setting? I think not. The suspension of disbelief required to envision a society with less homophobia than the real world is not onerous, and I don't think it's so unrealistic as to be calling on the power of the MST3K Mantra to deal with it. If the world was sunshine and kittens and nobody at all cared about what other people did in the bedroom at all, it'd be time to call bullshit. If it's not high on the list of concerns, that's plenty plausible. If we can buy into a world with elemental airships, we can buy into a world where homophobia is less common. The inclusion of some issue keeps it making sense, but the inclusion of a lot primarily serves to make the game less fun. It's a game. How about not doing that?(Full disclosure: As the player of the female-attracted elf sailor Thuranni rogue who thinks another character's almost-stepmother is nice to look at, who asked this question in the first place, I might be biased.)

Greetings, all. One of my players asked me a question that I had no idea about: What is the legal and social standing of homosexuality in Eberron?
