I guess I'm still curious as to what extent people want a gay character in the films. How would that be portrayed? Someone mentioned Dumbledore being vaguely hinted as being gay. And while personally that thought never once crossed my mind, I thought the author at one point revealed that she viewed the character as being gay. But that never came up in the films (I never read the novels), and why should it? Why would Dumbledore be mentioning that to Harry or Snape or whomever? But conveying homosexuality is not as easy as showing someone of a different race. The latter is all visual. Mace never once mentioned something about being black. For homosexuality, they can make it more obvious by doing something like they did with Ziro the Hutt and make a more effeminate male character. I would think that would be considered offensive as stereotyping (?) but I don't know. Not every gay male is effeminate or fits that kind of stereotype, and not every gay female fits the stereotype of being masculine. There are many that you would never guess unless explicitly told or shown. I would think that would be preferable and less offensive, but it also would require either dialogue mentioning the character's sexuality, which I would think it would be more like Dumbledore in that, regardless of a character being gay or not, that it wouldn't come up. To have it come up without it explicitly being talked about could alternatively involve simply showing it. For instance, I had mentioned that for instance had Owen or Bail been gay, it could have occurred without any dialogue to point out "hey, I'm gay" or call attention to it like its weird. For instance had Bail mentioned that he and his partner would be interested to have Leia since they had talked about adopting a baby girl and then we see Bail return to Alderaan, hand off Leia to another man, and then sit down next to him. The idea would get across without altering the story in any way and without any character having to go out of his/her way to call attention to their sexual orientation through dialogue. Would that be acceptable as an acknowledgement of homosexuality in the Star Wars universe, or is the interest in having the central romance being a same sex one (like had Han or Leia been gay for example)? I would think that would be far less likely to happen.
