Great Debate

Okay, so here's something to debate over:
C-3PO: Gay, or just Artsy-Fartsy?
He was programmed for etiquette and protocol. He's fluent in over six million forms of communication. But can everybody's favourite golden android really be a deep-in-the-closet Dumbledore? Well, let's look at the facts, and try and see for ourselves.

-when we first see him in Episode I, he's worried because his "parts" are showing.

-he's revered as a cuddly teddy bears.

-he spends all of his time hanging out with another male robot, who just so happens to be just high enough to be level with his crotch.

-he walks like he has (or has had) something stuck firmly up his bottom.

-he spent a good portion of "The Empire Strikes Back" riding piggyback on Chewbacca.

-he was built by a VERY lonely little boy

-there's just something creepy about the way he says "human-cyborg relations".

So, what does everyone else think? Is our friend C-3PO really a mechanical metaphor for man-on-man mambo? Or is he just a misunderstood, effeminate robot, like Tom Cruise? Post your opinions, if you dare.
Next week...Frodo and Sam: Brokeback Mount Doom?

"Thank the maker! This oil bath is going to feel sooooo good!"
