I find it hard to believe the creators of TOS had any concern at all for possible bi-sexuality, when here we are 4 decades later and they have yet to have the stones to introduce a single actual "gay" character.

And they didn't even have to have a parade or anything! :D Just a subtle acknowledgment that it exists in the Trek universe.

One reason I love Theodore Sturgeon: he had guts. Not only did editors and publishers refuse to have anything to do with "The World Well Lost" -- they also called other professionals and told them to ban it as well.

Yet he got it out there. And it really is a great piece of science fiction. Beautiful, poignant, and downright ballsy.

Again, what's the purpose of these threads? If a char was gay/bi-sexual, whatever..then who cares. If they do their job well, and don't act like a huge flaming drag queen, then what happens in their quarters, stays in their quarters.

the point of the thread was not to put down any character. I like to think there a gay people in the future and it is so accepted that nobody even mentions it, kind of like having brown hair or something, its just no big deal. I think it would be cool if one of the major charcters would have been discovered to have been gay and it have really been no big deal
