I think that there is plenty of room to argue that his orientation is same-sex, but that he is confused by the inculcation that he has received from society.
I don't think we need a thread, because we all know it would go like "I think this" and "I think that" - like we are right now
- around a subject Anno apparently never really mentioned, or no one has never noticed before, unlike Ibuki's sexuality.
Although I agree with you that Shinji's behavior may be interpreted as having a tendency for homosexuality, I think 14 is much of a young age for anyone, including himself, to absolutely affirm anything like that.
Sexuality is, after all, not yet defined at that age. But hey, this is not a psychologist speaking!
...If only NERV would offer therapy sessions included in their health insurance.
Of course, Soluzar, if anyone else ever starts a thread about Shinji's sexuality I might say a word or two myself.[/edit]Originally posted on: 05-Nov-2004, 17:05 GMT
