Why is it an issue when a ghey character mentions who they like?

We have Zoe who constantly flaunts about Ezreal. Ezreal always comments on Lux. God-King Garen has quotes about Katarina. Xayah and Rakan literally talk about how hot they find eachother. So why is Neeko having a few lines about how she finds Ahri Beautiful, wanting to have lunch with Shyvana and finding Xayah pretty, such an issue? How is her finding these champions attractive, apparently so character defining, but not for any straight champions? It's not really fair. Edit: I was kind of terrified to make this post, so I'm really glad to see it got some positive responses.

We're testing a new feature that gives the option to view discussion comments in chronological order. Some testers have pointed out situations in which they feel a linear view could be helpful, so we'd like see how you guys make use of it.
