I went to see the new Robocop movie yesterday. It had me wondering… why was the main character straight? Why couldn’t he have been gay.

It bothers me, because yes there are gay characters in movies, but they are never the main character, unless the movie is about a gay theme, such as Brokeback Mountain. That was a groundbreaking movie, but why can’t I have a “regular” movie, such as Robocop, or The Never Ending Story with a gay lead character, where the movie IS NOT about the person’s sexuality?
