    So I read DW Sunstreaker was MEANT MEANT I CANNOT STRESS THIS ENOUGH to be gay

    And the TF Wiki says when known, along with his MTMTE bio, it's sorta disturbing.

    I just want to know what his MTMTE bio is.

    :horse:  :deadhorse: 

    Is it even technologically possible for a genderless robot to be gay?

    Also, if you read that footnote in complete context, it says:
    This doesn't mean Trac... er...sorry, Sunstreaker was actually "gay." It means Moylan apparently based Sunstreaker's character on some sort of gay character type.

    Basing a character on a type and a character actually BEING something are two entirely different things.

    For example, one of the comics writers for DC's Pinky & The Brain comics (based on the hit TV series) says that the two title characters became much easier to write dialog for when they were viewed as a gay couple. The writer clarified that he wasn't saying that P&TB were actually gay, just that he based them on a type.

    If they are able to have "females" and be "brothers", then sure why not.

    Its a far cry from Marvel G1 comics - I always had the impression that he was a "blood/fuel-thirsty" Autobot. The same goes for Sideswipe but the latter was more friendlier.

    I believe his MTMTE bio says something about streaker is always thinking how to screw the other bots (screw as to show how he is better than them)

    This is what matt said: Hah, how abotu I deflect your question with an interesting and shiney secret factoid:

    In the DW continuity, Sunstreaker was meant to be gay.

    Now, putting aside the philosophy of such a thing... go reread his MTMTE entry knowing this fact, heh.


    Here is the link: http://www.tfw2005.com/boards/760517-post38.html



    "This doesn't mean Trac... er...sorry, Sunstreaker was actually "gay." It means Moylan apparently based Sunstreaker's character on some sort of gay character type."

    Being that Matt said he was "meant" to be gay I dont think thats the cas . Plus, Matt didnt write anything for Sunstreaker did he?

    Sure, Sunstreaker was gay.........but only when Pat Lee did him. ;) 

    I could care less if they're all gay, straight, male, female, whatever. Transformers are Transformers and they're cool.

    Here's what I asked Vector Prime (at Insecticons.com, not the official one)
    I think that covers it. A lot of morons, including people righting official comics, can't understand that someone who takes pride in their appearance isn't necessarily gay.

    Energon Mirage totally had it for Galvatron....

    Anyways.... So what if he is gay? Does it really matter? Besides feeding creepy fangirl fantasies, but they would have done something similar to begin with....

    You guys are kind of dodging my question and tackling the whole "gay" thing.

    What was his "More then Meet the Eye" Bio?

    That's because I believe "he" was a "she" in Superlink.

    Way I've always seen it is that they do have two genders, but gender isn't an issue with regards to relationships. They're attracted to the person, not the gender. We're the ones that put stock in male vs. female.

    Of course if you go with the theory they're all one gender, then they're ALL gay. :lol
