In honour of Spirit Day 2012!
I've always thought Rune Haako was depicted, or suggested, as being gay. There's something about his grace, his mannerisms, his whole persona...and I love it! And I love how his ROTS robes are perfect for Spirit Day! 8D
I'm not homosexual (I'm actually asexual 8D), but I'm wholeheartedly in support of LGBTQ rights! For me, love is love, no matter what gender or sex it takes, and no one deserves to be discriminated against because of their sexual orientation.
I actually don't believe Neimoidians would find homosexuality such a taboo or unusual thing (for reasons it would take me too long to explain...ask in the comments if you want), and I don't see why, in the past few centuries, it's become such an unspeakable thing here on Earth. If we can put a robot and an HD camera on Mars, then why can't we incorporate homosexuality equally into our society.
-rant off; being gay (or bi, or pan, or hetero, or ace, etc) is awesome, and Neimoidians are cute! 8D-
