One of the things I love about Pokemon is that interpersonal relationships involving the main character are mostly subjective. I'm a gay male and always chose to perceive the subtexts in ways that best reflected my own life. Pokemon allows the player to project him or herself onto the Pokemon world, and that's why it is awesome.

Who told you of the steamroller?! It is the most secret and revered component of our gay agenda! This will set back our plans... Our FABULOUS plans!

I am also a gay male and think that this topic is a bit silly (though I recognize it's probably intended to be). The protagonists in Pokemon have always been, like, 12. They haven't developed any sexual orientation at all yet, and the games don't portray them having any sexuality at all.
What they COULD do and what would be awesome would be to have more gay NPCs, preferably ones that are actually openly acknowledged as being gay, just as there are straight NPCs that are actually acknowledged as being straight.

I don't get why that was a response to his post.

It's a response because it's the freaking Oatmeal.

I figured it out, I had thought that you were complaining about improper use of "literally" when I saw no such improper use. My mistake. XP

Eh, both have their perks. I'm not sure I'd ever be down for giving up that whole thing where we totally don't have to worry about getting pregnant unintentionally, though.
