Re: Naruto's Homosexuality
My articulated two cents on the matter.
- Being gay is ok, people. Gay people aren't abominations: it's just a genetic or subconscious condition, it's still being investigated. Also don't come with the "unnatural" arguments, there are records of lesbian gazelles that do some naughty games when the males aren't interested in them, and gay male snakes that mate with each other to keep them warm when they emerge in a cold Spring morning. So accept it as civilized people and move on.
- I recognize there are many hints at the possibility of Naruto being gay like Tzu-men appointed in his original post. But it's up to interpretation, where some see a bunch of stars, others see a dragon or a bear. Personally, some of the hints I can agree with him, but others I can't agree with him because I think he's over-thinking some instances of the manga just for the sake of the point. Summarizing, the point is valid, but some of the arguments are not that valid.
- Lastly, I don't think Naruto is gay. Why? Aside from shipping NaruHina (yes, flame me as you want, I don't care), I don't think Kishimoto would kill his hen of the golden eggs. This is a shonen manga, and because of the slightly homophobic conjecture of the targeted demographics, he'd be pulling a flop if he revealed a confessed gay Naruto. If it's a good twist to the shonen genre? Yes. If it'd drag the manga and the author to a pretty low place in the majority's (even non-Naruto fans) opinion? Yes.
It's better to say Naruto is asexual until definitely proven otherwise and avoid these silly flame festivities.
