Why do you think GOB is bisexual? Look back at his interactions with women: he's disinterested in them and quick to shoot down their offers of sex (or avoids sex altogether, like with his seal trainer wife), and seems like he's only with them out of some misguided feeling he should be, or to provoke a reaction from his family. He's repressed. S4 was very obviously about him coming to terms with being gay. I'm surprised you're getting a bi reading from it? He's never convincingly been into women
i think the issues we’ve seen gob have with women stem more from his developmental issues than from him having a lack of interest in them.
homeboy has textbook Commitment Issues™
which isn’t surprising given his upbringing and we see this over and over again, from his sleeping around in high school and sleeping around post high school for that matter, to his relationship with marta, etc.
and bringing up his wife is funny to me, bc he looks pretty interested in sex to me here:
there are also a few instances in the show indicating he’s into threesomes. ima talk about these a bit.
**and by the way, i’m not trying to say that anyone who is into threesomes is automatically bisexual – i just think these particular scenes are good evidence for gob in particular being into both men and women.**
the first time, early on in the show, there was this scene:
gob: heard you’re selling the yacht.
michael: yeah, i had a couple in there this morning.
gob: yeah, i know.
gob: well, they got the “asian” right. “hotties” might be a stretch. …well, let’s start with the little one.
(sorry i don’t have gifs of it) but yeah. there’s that. looks like lil gobie ~ordered a couple to have sex with. and it doesn’t seem like he specified genders. or at least doesn’t care.
go him tbh
then, in another scene, he briefly mentions a threesome he had in the past with a female and a male.
and then there was a scene in season 3, where we see he was trying to have a threesome with ann and some other chick:
gob: my religious girlfriend just dumped me, and for a simple little misunderstanding. i mean, if someone was always asking you to embrace the Holy Trinity, what would you think they meant?
narrator: gob thought it meant a three-way.
this girl is shown slapping him:
and we later see that ann is the other girl in this scene.
moving on, i do agree with you that *some* of his relationships with women were to provoke a reaction from his family (mainly his relationship with lucille 2), but i think it’s also pretty obvious that he’s interested in women sexually as well. he just has major issues committing to relationships and expressing feelings. and that goes for both men and women.
a huge part of season 4 is gob coming to terms with his feelings for tony, which is awesome. we finally see gob able to (at least a little bit) open up and talk about his feelings. but i don’t think this completely erases his past interest in women.
bi erasure is a thing k. i just think it shows that he is slowly getting better at expressing his feelings along with him coming to the realization that he wants to be more than friends with tony.
gob is just a very love-deprived individual and i just really hope we get to see much more of him and tony bc this poor child is finally getting some love and growing up and HE DESERVES ALL THE LOVE IN THE WORLD
at the end of the day you’re obviously free to have your own opinion but gob is my bisexual son and no one can convince me otherwise ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
