It’s a question fans have been asking since Star Wars first debuted in 1977: is C-3PO gay?

Of course, your first reaction may be that droids are sexless and asexual, and while they may have masculine or feminine characteristics, they are neither male nor female, and therefore homosexuality or any other orientation is completely out of the question.

And maybe that’s so, but then why has the question fascinated fans for decades?
