    I was just rewatching Deux Et Machina and I don't know why I didn't notice it before but when Starscream says "oh yes you're one of those" and Knockout replies with "Come Again?" as if Starscream implied something else about Knockout. I know the insinuations about Knockout have been out there but someone mentioned once about one of the actors on a panel at some convention talked about Knockout's orientation. Can someone elaborate? What was said? Please and thank you?

    Something about cybertornians not having gender so he can't be gay.

    And considering the whole point of KNock Out is being a cybertronian that REALLY enjoys being a car as according to Jeff Kline at SDCC... that pretty much confirms that Starscream was really only talking about his vehicle mode and nothing else.

    Lucky for you, someone got that part of the BotCon panel on video. You can find it on YouTube if you search.

    And just because I seem to be on an image binge today, here:

    They must have genders. Why else would they use pronouns like he or she when referring to one another? There’s also been an attraction between male and female characters throughout the history of Transformers, I bet it’ll happen in this incarnation too if it hasn’t already.

    However, I would agree with you that Cybertronians are not gay as they don’t have intercourse.

    Well I'm sure the writers probably meant sex instead of gender, it's a common word swap mistake when talking about the subject.

    Knock Out's voice is actualy very manly if you ask me. Just look at when he gets angry "WAATTTCCHH THE PAINT", he sounds scarier than Megatron!

    True, he's a Con a girl could listen to....until the paint dries. ;) 



    As for the OP topic...yeah, SS was mocking KO's mode of transportation, nothing else.

    It is manly. It's campy-metro-manly, but still manly.

    And sexy.

    Is there a reason why some fans want him to be gay? Does he need to be gay?

    I know what Starscream says in the next sentence I just found it amusing at the double meaning I took from it is all jeez

    besides they fill knock out with lines like that just look at the way he flirts with Optimus in the same episode LOL

    I'd just like to point out to everybody that based on some of the comments at Botcon the writers actually made him this way intentionally. Whether they meant for him to actually be gay or not is up for debate though.

    Well by and large the whole phenomenon is the distaff of what's happened in the MLP: FiM fandom; due to the lack of opposite gender characters, (more a TF issue than a MLP one) the bizzare assumption is that they gay seems to appear.

    Or more simply, because the fans want to write them that way.

    It's a multilayered joke: kids get it one way, adults another (or both).

    Someone really needs to post that Sassy Gay Knockout comic. I would, but I don't have it on this computer.

    i'm so sick of people trying to make transformers gay...single lines of dialogue taken out of context...and dear lord have you seen some of the fan art out there?! if a person is gay, hey cool thats you and thats fine, great even. but, just like you dont want someone forcing "straight" on you, lets not force "gay" on others.
