Re: Theorizing: Is Link gay?

^ wise call. If this debate is going to take place at all, it needs to stay polite and respectful. This isn't Serious Business, where the more philosophical part of above belongs.

Re: Theorizing: Is Link gay?

This makes total sense. IF YOU DON'T KISS EVERY GIRL YOU COME IN CONTACT WITH, YOU'RE GAY.

Oh, but wait. He hasn't kissed any guys either.

Something tells me he's talking about the biological term.

I used it, but if there are any negative origins to the term then I apologise. Now that I think about it, when "straight" is used in terms of abstaining from substances, it usually means you're "clean." I suppose I could see some homophobic person using it in a similar context to describe heterosexuality. If that's the case, then I'll stop using it. Sorry if I offended anyone.

Lol, you didn't. I just don't use that term because it implies heterosexuals are as they should be, and homosexuals in basic terminology are not 'straight' making them seem as if they're wrong, which to me is horribly offensive since I've accept who I am and that term says I am wrong.

Its a term that comes with the language, so it doesn't pain me to much to read that term but its not something I'll use due to reasons above.

Anyways back to the debate, I think this'll end up a thread in Serious Business if it anyone feels the need to address it.

Re: Theorizing: Is Link gay?

Yeah, you make a good point. In that case, I'll avoid using it from now on. I guess I just never really thought about it in that way.

But yes, back on topic!

Re: Theorizing: Is Link gay?

If Link's gay, explain the look on his face during that bizarre cutscene in TP when he sees all those upsidown images of Ilia.

Guessing the fact it was a dream, wasn't actually link just links' form being used and maybe because she was upside down?

Hows that? :XD

Re: Theorizing: Is Link gay?

Link obviously has feelings for Ilia, has something going on with MC Zelda, swoons after being kissed by OoX Zelda, and it is said Link's time with Marin is his "big chance"

Re: Theorizing: Is Link gay?

Ok I haven't read through all of this but a few thoughts

Supporting links gay.
- Lack of affection with women. Link does seem to not be interested in girls.
- his earing in OoT.

Supporting link is straight
- seems to like Ilia
- Way he blushed and almost fainted when zelda kissed him at the end of beating Ganon in the OoS/OoA series.
- In the ALTTP mania link marries Zelda in the end of the comic.

Something that can support either one.
- The original was that Links personality came from the player. The player got to think about what link saids, and his personality. Link did not even have his own personality until OoT. This is why Link never speaks. Because the player besides what link saids and do. This is why link does not speak, and also why he does not choose a girl.

Also the next time I play LA, after I get Marin I'm having link take her to the abandoned house and then saving the game leaving them there alone.

"now is your big chance link"

Edit:
sloths rule, men did wear clothing like that buring the middle ages. Ever heard of a Kilt.

Lol how is his earing a sign of being gay? :XD

Keep in mind it'd be kinda impossible for ALL of the links (there are quite a few links) to be gay.

Don't be rude... I didn't know he always wore a tunic. In OoT and MM he wears shorts and I can't tell what he's wearing in the older 2D games because it isn't as noticeable. In TP it just stood out to me because of its graphics.

A lot of people picture gays as wearing one earing. However I forgot to mencion that I know a lot of straight people who wear one earing.

In Australia one earing is straight and two earings is gay.

That wasn't a dream it was more of a vision. THat spirit thing, or whatever was showing you how powerful the lust for the Triforce was.

They could have picked anyone in Link's life, but they chose Illia. Why choose her? Well its obvious, Nintendo chose Illia to be the main love interest. Or so to speak. That vision was showing how two people with strong emotions were quick to betray one another for a chance at the Triforce. I bet Link felt every feeling experienced in that vision.

The whole Link and Illia friendship showed that they had feelings for each other.

Also there is no proof or evidence to suggest anything other then him being heterosexual. So what if he hasn't kissed someone, so anyone who has never kissed a female is automatically gay? Someone else pointed this out but, he has not kissed a boy yet either. So by this logic it would mean he is... neither and is asexual as someone else said.

But the whole thing about not kissing any of the girls is just not proof at all. It shows that Link is not some horny who wants one thing. It shows that he has manners. I mean who really goes up to someone they hardly know and just kisses them? The only game that Link ever actually makes a true friendship with the opposite sex is TP and OoT. TP had Illia, they seemed very close. OoT was with Saria. Apparently they have been somewhat friends. Oh and WW/PH was with Zelda/Tetra.

The rest are just friends, some do seem to want link, but he seems to only think of them as friends. The only other female character that Link shares with another female is with Malon in OoT. But for the most part, any love interest is purely fan base. While in TP the whole LinkxIllia is strongest out of any of the whole deal.

Anyways, there IS no proof that he is gay. The best you can do is the fact that he has not kissed any of the females(to our knowledge) But the logic that because he has not, means he is gay. Works against it self as I have already said. Because if this were true, he would need to kiss a boy... because he has not it means that he is not gay, but that would mean he is neither.

So my best guess is that Link is an asexual as Taakeslottet described it.

Re: Theorizing: Is Link gay?

I think I'll agree with Slime. They never give us details about his sexuality, so it's up in the air. Link isn't even a real character, he is just a vessle for the player.

Link = neutral
Player heterosexual --> Link heterosexual
Player homosexual --> Link homosexual

They make him ambigious on purpose in order to please everybody.

And I can believe no one posted this:

WARNING: DO NOT WATCH, IF YOU ARE EASYLY OFFENDED OR A MINOR!!
contains some animated blood, animated censured breasts, bad language and lots of other stuff that will corrupt inocent minds. You have been warned!

YouTube - Favorite Xandir Moments - Season 1

BTW Xandir is a parody of Link, if you didn't get that.
