    He is too sexy not to bed everybody regardless of gender.

    ESTP galore!
    I dunno if that really holds water. This is James Bond, after all. He can basically get nookie anywhere on the planet. It's not lack of opportunity that reins in his hedonism, it's lack of time.

    But I think an agent who can swing both ways to gain the desired result is a much more pragmatic, dangerous and unlimited Bond than one who can't. That's purely from a sex-as-a-means-to-an-end standpoint. It also plays into the fact that the new Bond is quite an amoral character.

    The character is programmed to bang women and kill people; there can be no deviation.

    Woot??

    When did I say that lack of opportunity has anything to do with it. I said he enjoys life and has fun in all shapes and sizes, basically a pansexual hedonist.

    That sounds like a challenge.

    For all that we have done, as a civilization, as individuals, the universe is not stable, and nor is any single thing within it. Stars consume themselves, the universe itself rushes apart, and we ourselves are composed of matter in constant flux. Colonies of cells in temporary alliance, replicating and decaying and housed within, an incandescent cloud of electrical impulses. This is reality, this is self knowledge, and the perception of it will, of course, make you dizzy.

    What this is really about in my eyes is a) to what degree are bi men perceives as more, equally or less manly as/than hetero men and b) how flexible are people in general when it comes to such reinterpretations of said popcultural icons and c) would such a reinterpretation be perceived as threatening to cultural norms and/or people's concepts of male sexuality and if so why?

    Sorry, my irritation comes from the fact the question was never raised until after that line in THAT movie showed up. Which makes it sound like people are like, "OMG! OMG! HE MIGHT BE GAY! HE MIGHT BE BI! HOW WILL THAT IMPACT THE MOVIES IN THE FUTURE? BLAH BLAH BLAH."

    Does that make sense? I'm reacting to gullibility and misunderstandings, not curious speculation.

    If this question has been asked as purely speculative before this movie came out, I think it wouldn't be a huge deal at all, it would be far more interesting.

    See above.

    If it had not been based on people flipping out about a line in this movie, I'd be all ears. Right now, it just seems like paranoid reaction to the movie, and I deal enough with people IRL who imagine all sorts of crazy things from misread cues without viable support. We might as well be asking if a particular ice skater might be gay because of something on one of his outfits; it's just silly.

    EDIT: OMG, Nerd Girl agreed with me.

    The end of the world is coming earlier than December 21. I am SO sorry, everyone, I hope you get a few minutes to make your peace with life.
