I gotta admit those panels made me got WTF?, but I don't see Sin playing for either team he's too busy with his grand plans to protect the universe etc.

I always just assumed he made constructs with his ring to pleasure himself with. I don't think he has time for much else....

The Joker is a good example as far as sexual ambiguity/asexuality goes. I think Sinestro is right in that boat -- we have no idea, but from all indications it seems like he just wouldn't be interested in any partner.

Though I hesitate to bring it up, I think it is worth mentioning/reminding... Sinestro did sport a lone earring... in his right ear alone. I don't know about in other countries or what-have-you, but that generally denotes homosexuality in my part of the U.S..

we know of several aliens in the DCU that don't have sex, or male / female gender specific roles within their society, so why assume that Sinestro and the people of Korugar are the same as earth?

just because we have male / female roles and the pairing is the accepted fashion here, doesn't mean that that is the baseline for the entire universe, hell, out there, the main pairing might be the triple, or the quad instead of the couple... we just don't know, and until we do, i don't see the point on speculating about aliens that we don't know that much about...

I see where you are coming from with the earing. That is the general trend, even up here in Canada. Same with a purple triangle. Anyway, I just have to quote the Thos for my reply

Has been since at least the 80s, when that comic came out.

I've noticed that the fabric of his costume is of high quality. So yes.

Don't think Tha'al is gay, but there was an issue several years ago when he was in this all-villain group, and he was on the cover, he looked a bit gay, other than that, no.

Gonna say nope. He knocked up a hot chick on Korugar and had a daughter with her. Also I swore I saw some innuendo between Lyssa and Sinestro recently but can't find it. I'm predicting they'll hook up anyways.

Every male superhero wears tights and has bulging muscles etc. Not a clue.

At this point, I'm thinking maybe he is gay.The way Lyssa's looking now, he should've laid the pipe a long time ago.I know her teeth are jacked up, but damn, someone gonna to get with that.Though I do hope he may hook up with Bekka down the line.

It's hard to argue with your logic.

Setting aside the fact that I happen to have a huge crush on him, I think that Sinestro has put such things as love or sex on the back burner, and it seems like a long shot that he would decide to change his mind once he's made it up.

First, he was/is a Green Lantern. His will must be incredible. The comics are never clear on precise timing of events, but Sinestro lost his best friend, the he lost his wife - twice, effectively, because she left him, hid Soranik then saw him that last time before she was killed. And of course, he lost his daughter. He befriended Hal, and then he lost that, too. People don't react to tragedy in the same way, but those events, especially close together, might be more than enough to put a fellow off close relationships for a very long time, if not permanently.

As for sexual expression, the Korugarians seem pretty humanoid. After all, Katma Tui and John Stewart were married. Kyle Rayner and Soranik Natu seemed pretty cozy, too.

Just for the record, I doubt that Sinestro is gay. He's celibate, more than likely and probably unconcerned with sex or love.

I agree. He just doesn't care. Obviously he was straight and in love (when he was married to Abin's sister) at a time. But now he's all about his goals, which, btw, I think makes villains and anti-heroes more bada$$.
