Characters that should've been gay

ShowMeLove's picture

What characters in movies, TV, books, ect....do you think should've been gay, lesbian, bisexual?

You know when you watch a movie or whatever and you think "oh, she was totally gay" but in the movie you never actually see her get together with a girl? The character just sets off your gaydar. Okay....maybe I'm alone on this but I think there have been a few.

A couple that I think should've been gay:

Idgie and freaking Ruth from Fried Green Tomatoes!!!!!!!!!!!!
Both in the book and movie. They were totally in love!!

Those two female leads in Bend it Like Beckham, Keira Knightley and whoever it was. I even heard that maybe they wrote the script originally to make it queer.

I kinda like it if Kristen

I kinda like it if Kristen Stewart is a lesbian LOL But unfortunately she's not... *crying*

Nothing is good or bad, but thinking makes it so.

Oh my god this is a great thread!!

Lets see? .... FAITH from Buffy the Vampire Slayer!! There is hella Buffy/Faith subtext in the third season. And maybe Kennedy/Faith would be interesting... although they are both strongish types. And I have seen some wicked Tara/Faith fics.

Also, Anya from BTVS, she has that man hating thing going.. although her relationship with Xander was brilliant, so I wouldn't want to let that go.

Oh well, I would mention Willow/Tara and Kennedy... except that they ARE gay.

Oh yeah, and Andrew is definitely GAY for Warren... why do you think he joined the trio that was the big bad of season 6.

Oh!! And best of all, not to mention most famous (can't believe it hasn't been mentioned yet... SHAME ON YOU ALL) XENA FUCKING GABRIELLE. Oh my god the most obvious thing ever... although, it was written that way for the most part. This pairing pioneered the fanfictionverse like no other. It is like the Kirk/Spock of Femslash... come on people! And you all are trying to make people in twilight gay... learn some fandom history. Xena/Gabby is the reason there are gay characters on television today..

And not to mention Buffy aired the first lesbian sex scene on network television. Historic much!!

Anyway, best freaking shows ever. and GAYEST.

As the 100th post....

Kimberly the Pink Ranger from The Power Rangers!

Go go Power Rangers!!!!!

Okay....maybe that one's just cause I used to have a crush on her when I was a kid. ;)

OMG Amy Jo Johnson! I was

OMG Amy Jo Johnson! I was obsessed with power rangers. I remember being in like kindergarten and being pissed that she was the pink one because I hated pink, but I loved her. Did I dare wear that much pink on halloween? We also have the same middle name which was a big deal....You keep picking all the favs I didn't know I had!

ShowMeLove's picture

Haha

Yes! I think I went out as her one Halloween too. And I had the Pink Ranger Gloves that, I think, made sound when you punched someone. Hey, did you ever see the episode where she had a fling with the Yellow Ranger?.....Oh, wait, that was only in my dreams ;) Hehehe.

She was and still is very pretty :) I tried to watch Flashpoint because a)it's Canadian made and b) I knew she was on it and c) the dad from Veronica mars was on it.......but it just wasn't my type of show.

I was also the Pink Power Ranger one Halloween. I may still have that costume somewhere. But I was obsessed with the Power Rangers, I had the movies, watched the show, and had the action figures. :)

Degrassi

The girl who plays football in Degrassi. I think her name was Jane? I haven't been keeping up with the show so I'm not sure. The very first episode she was in I thought YES! She could totally be gay. She just had that vibe and look. And yeah, Degrassi hasn't made her queer yet, that I know of. But there's still hope ;) Degrassi writers make it happen! And if you do I will return to watch the show again AND I will somewhat forgive you for kicking Alex off in such a crappy way. Peace.

hellyeash! she's dating

hellyeash!
she's dating Spinner...
but i don't watch it anymore b/c nearly all the characters on the new show suck since they got rid of Marco/Ellie & the rest of the old cast.

ShowMeLove's picture

She's dating Spinner??

She's dating Spinner?? Nooooooooo! I din't even know that.

I haven't been watching it either for the same reason. Once most of the original cast left I stopped watching. I gave the new cast a chance but I don't like most of them. If there's nothing to watch and an episode happens to be on I try to watch it but I find it really hard to watch now.

holahaveamuffin18's picture

well.. last time i watched,

well.. last time i watched, she was. i dunno anymore.

& yeah, i really don't like the new cast either. it also seems like they're trying really hard to get drama in this season, even if it doesn't make sense.

On Doctor Who. The Doctor

On Doctor Who. The Doctor and The Master are so in love and practically married.

Also Abby on NCIS seems like the kind of character that could be bisexual and no one would be surprised.

so.

very. true. omg yes...i love all the characters! <3

guys..... don't kill me agian......

but read the A. Dumbledore/ G. Grindalwald as teens scene in the seventh book with this topic in your mind and tell me that they don't sound like childhood boyfriends? ("even after spinding all day together talking, when it was late at night, i'd sometimes hear an owl at gellert's window with a letter from albus! he had a thought and had to get it to gellert right away!")

I could swear

I read a quote somewhere from JKR saying that Dumbledore had been in love with Grindelwald... but I can't really remember for sure.
Still, they're pretty much canon.

anyone think the crane boys

anyone think the crane boys are way too in touch to be 100% straight? i mean, they like the classics, are wine connisures, expencive taste, always hang out together,a bit pompus...... why do they pretend?

The Spice Girls'

Sporty Spice! Haha.

Was she not at least a little queer? I thought for a long time that Melanie C was gay but now she has a baby and a boyfriend. So...maybe not.

the operative word?.....

is "maybe!" the presence of offspring does not a straight one make.....

She's The Man

Olivia and Viola (in She's The Man) should have ended up together. It was such a rip that Olivia who was totally head-over-heels for Viola (albeit while she was pretending to be Sebastian) would automatically be okay with being with the REAL Sebastian. I mean, come on! She fell in love with VIOLA! But just cause he's a guy she'd totally be into him. It's just silly. And I think Duke should've been gay or maybe just bi...I don't think he was a full blown heterosexual.

I think Olivia and Viola would be cute together. The interaction when they first bump into each other felt like sparks to me :)

Haha FUCK, now I need to

Haha FUCK, now I need to watch that movie again to go subtext hunting! XDD

MacAvity's picture

Eh...

Considering that She's The Man was inspired by Shakespeare's Twelfth Night...yeah. For one, Duke (Orsino) was completely in love with Cesario (Viola in masculine usurped attire, in the movie they called him/her Sebastian the same as her brother) even though he thought he was a boy... For another, yeah, Olivia fell for Cesario because Cesario was a girl but not obviously so, so yes, the Olivia and Sebastian relationship is doomed because Sebastian really is a man... Viola probably would have been better off with Olivia, too, but whatever... And of course Antonio (I'm not sure the movie has an equivalent character?) doesn't even try to hide his feelings for Sebastian. Stupid oblivious Sebastian.

From Princess Bride

In the book version, at least, Inigo and Fezzik seem like they could be more than friends. I haven't decided about the movie version, but in the book they give off a really strong 'gay vibe'.

The Tin Man from The Wizard of Oz.

"Why is it that as a society, we are more comfortable seeing two men holding guns than holding hands?"

holahaveamuffin18's picture

i heard that the cowardly

i heard that the cowardly lion was supposed to be gay.
or, just a very stereotypical portrayal of one.
and in Wicked i think that the tin man was one of the guys Elphie went to Shiz w/, and i've heard that that character was gay.

WRT The Cowardly Lion

Here's a somewhat oblique reference. However, I have serious reservations about the article --- explaining why I've not posted it more visibly:

ShowMeLove's picture

Really?

I've always kinda seen the lion as asexual. He was an animal so I just didn't see him as any particular sexuality. Though, I guess he is basically a stereotype of a gay guy. Still, I just see him as an animal.

The tin man just exudes gayness to me. Especially with the way he talks and sounds.

Come to think of it, there's that whole "Friend of Dorthy" saying. Guess, this is why it came to be.

even though the entire movie

even though the entire movie was about her being pregnant, i totally think ellen page in juno was a complete lesbian.

i think Jack

from the movie Four Brothers should have been gay. I read an interview with the movie cast and Garrett Hedlund, who played Jack, said there was some ambiguity about that, but they didn't go into it. He was my favorite character.

I have to think some more about female characters I think should have been gay...
